hooray for completed projects - these all seem to finish at the same time and boy does that make me smile!

first off the tams - i fell in love with knitty's three tams pattern http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter07/PATTtam.html
i made this one (version c) for me with local yukon alpaca and noro silkgarden (shade 226)

and a second one (a hybrid of version b + a) for my sister - we've named it the bruise tam because the colours are all bruise-y shades  Wink

and yes i've cast on another!

and my tomten for my friend's little boy is done- hoooray!! i actually completed knitting it in November but haven't been able to put the zipper in until now - i'm home for christmas so my mom sewed it in with her machine. i'm sooo pleased. the buttons are just a 'design element' -read: the top of the zipper was difficult to sew so it looked rather messy there so we sewed on the buttons to hide the machine stitches there ... plus i do think they are cute (knit with Lorna's Laces Bullfrogs and Butterflies - daffodil shade)

Wow!!! Do you think a beginner could attempt one of these without the stranding?

Everything is wonderful! I need to start making those tams, I love them!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

The northern downpour sends its love.

Great job on everything! I especially love your tams (and the fact that you used Noro for the colored sections instead of the 2,386 different skeins of yarn called for in the pattern).

yes i do! - the pattern is straight forward and i think this would a good first colour stranding project because you only use two colours (as the noro is striped)
i love the shape of it - i wear mine more as a slouchy 'snood' than a traditional tam but either way would be cute
