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?

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.

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
