With the holidays fast approaching, I've been working like mad to have a completely handmade holiday.  In the past few days I've finished an alpaca hat for my mother (Urban Shells), a hat for my mother-in-law (Angora Tam), a pair of mitts (my own pattern), an afghan for a friend's niece (my own pattern), and a bee hat (long story, heavily modified pattern from ravelry.com).  I'm actually debating whether or not to give the hat to Mom, I think she'd like a heavier hat with more color ... umm, or something (its so warm!).







         

Unfortunately, I'm never home during the sunlight hours so the photo quality suffers, and I just couldn't get a shot that gave the "Granny Brights" afghan any justice (actually I think it looks awful in this photo). 

Every time I make a pair of mitts I'm always so pleased at the way they come out, they're so simple to make, and they always fit so well!  I'm not sure who is the recipient of this particular pair yet.

Thanks for looking!

And Happy Holidays!     (Hannukah, Christmas, Solstice, Kwanza, and New Year!)

Nice gifts!  I especially like the look of that first grey hat, so stylish and comfy.  I'm sure the people who get your gifts will love them and not be nearly as critical as you are as the maker.

Cheers!

These are amazing! Such great gifts. Do you have patterns or where I can find patterns for any of these?

Thank you!  I tried linking the names of the patterns for the hats I used: all found on ravelry.com - I must have goofed the linking process.
