Last year for Christmas, I made Gir, a Triforce pillow, scarf and hat set for my mom, hats for my boyfriends nieces and nephew, and a penguin and dragon for my cousins.  This year, I held back from making so much because I've been having problems with my wrist.  Here's this years haul:

The crowning glory of this year's gifts- the Cthulhu ski mask.  My friend had seen this on the intertubes http://boingboing.net/2009/05/05/cthulhu-ski-mask.html and he casually said that he wanted one for Christmas.  I couldn't find an exact pattern so I started with a basic hat pattern and winged it from there. See:


Scarf for a friend:


Close-up:

The colors are a vibrant blue, white, and maroon but I couldn't get an accurate picture of the colors.

Another scarf for a friend:


Close-up:

It's backed in a purple fleece and the bow is the same color purple.

Panda:

This is a Lion Brand pattern.  The only thing the pattern is missing is a wee panda tail.

C&C appreciated!  Thanks!

I really dig that scarf, and your choice of colors!  Is that from a published pattern?

The chart can be found here: http://www.mypicot.com/crochet_patterns_mc1005.html, and the site has all kinds of charts available.  The site doesn't really provide patterns.

I actually don't have progress pics.  I was too excited to finish it to see if it would look okay that I totally forgot to take progress pics.
