Here are pics of gifts I have knitted for the holidays this year (or are knitting related):



The blue hat I used a Trendsetters pattern for, it has a lot of mistakes (it was my first time using ribbing for more than a few rows).  The two other hats I used a pattern I memorized a long time ago, and I do not remember where I got it.  I used a pattern from a local yarn store for the cabled neck warmer and no pattern for the scarf (it's just garter stitch).  The felted potholders are from a Noni pattern that was easy and which I enjoyed.  The ornaments I made from instructions found here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=268283.0

I also made a knitting needle roll of which I am unreasonably proud.  I like the fabrics and the way it looks.  I sort of wish I could keep it.







Thanks for looking.  Rock on!

PS: I used this pattern for the roll, which I changed a bit:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=201952.0

That's lovely stuff! Did you use a bulky yarn or many strands for the garter stitch scarf?

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

Thanks.  For the scarf I used some (very expensive, had to dig into the birthday dough) handspun, extremely bulky yarn from a farmer's market.  It was very fast and fun Smiley

That knitting needle roll is very cute!!!  I always feel like a doctor about to perform surgery when I unroll my kit.
