I've been making Christmas gifts since June, I've got 7 finished so far. The photos aren't great, but I think they're clear enough.

Note: I've technically been crocheting for 10 years, but I got all mixed up when I was taught by my right handed Aunt (I'm left handed) and while my stitches didn't look right I just kept going. It still made stuff and didn't look awful. Then I stopped for awhile. I finally found a video on youtube that made it impossibly clear to me why my crocheted stitches didn't look like crocheted stitches. So, ten years later I've finally got the single crochet down.

Navy blue and gray scarf for my brother-in-law's fiancee.

Gryffindor color scarf for my brother-in-law. I made him a red scarf 3 years ago for Christmas, but I ran out of yarn, so it was a bit short. I promised him I'd make him a proper one someday. Muahaha...

Brown 100% wool scarf for my Dad. It's lion brand fisherman's wool. He and I both really like wool. My Dad is a mail man and is very outdoorsy, so I always make him something warm, but I think this is my best yet.

Teal hat made with Stitch Nation yarn. This one's for my brother's (Twin B) girlfriend, whom he lives with. I made her some rice bags last year (first Christmas we knew her).

Ice blue, navy blue, and magenta/red scarf for Twin A's girlfriend. This is the first Christmas since we've known her. My brother says she likes all colors and I liked this combination.

Neck warmer for my Dad's wife. I made her a flannel scarf last year. Close ups of buttons, because I love them!

Neck warmer for my brother(Twin B) with close up of button. I made him a chestnut/dark orange one last year, so he requested another one for this year in another earth tone.

Me! I made a blue double wrapped cowl neck warmer for myself with Merino Wool Blend yarn. I love how it came out. Muahaha...

Thanks for looking!

Lovely work and great colours.  I really love the buttons you used, I've never thought of using buttons on a scarf before.
