These are Christmas presents I made for two of my best friends last year.  

These are fingerless mitts I knit.  He picked out the yarn.  It was Lamb's pride bulky and I loved working with it.
I made the pattern up as I went along the first mitt and then went back and wrote it down to follow for the second one.  I don't know if that's the most efficient way of doing things, but it worked.  





The second is a hat I made.  I also made this pattern up as I went along.  The yarn was from a handknit sweater I bought from the Salvation Army for $3.

Thanks everyone.   Smiley

I agree that the hat does suit her really well. I was happy that both the projects ended up matching up with their styles.
When you are knitting for your fashionable friends, the pressure is on.   Cheesy
