I'm normally not one to knit Christmas gifts, but this year, I decided I could take on 2 little ones. They ended up being finished in time, so I'm pretty pleased, and the recipients liked them (and even let me take pictures!)

This is the hat. It's basically just a long ribbed tube descreased at the end, with a pom-pom. My brothers specifications had been "I want it to be really long," so I just knit until I was almost out of yarn, and then we were set.

The only problem was that it sort of ended up looking like a giant red penis (and it sort of stood up without anything to weigh it down on top... EEP!). Thankfully I had enough yarn to make a pom-pom for the top, and fix that problem.

For my sister, I made Knitty's Corazon, but with a few modifications.

I kept the back more or less the same, but I made a new chart for the front... with SKULLS.

This was my first colourwork project, and I'm pretty happy with it (she is, too). I still have some ways to go, though, before I start on the Argyle Vest (but practice makes perfect, right?)

There are more pics and information on my blog, if you're especially interested.

Let me know what you guys think!

Yeah, it's kind of a bluey-purple with the black.

I'll pass that P.S. on. Wink
