I started my holiday gift knitting a little late this year (by not starting until Dec 1), but I managed to get 3 cowls and a skirt made. 

First, I joined the December Knit Along on Google+ and made my first Very Braidy Cowl

This one was made with Lion Cotton Ease and project notes are at http://www.ravelry.com/projects/kasuro/a-very-braidy-cowl

Next, I made another Very Braidy Cowl, but this time I used stash yarn which was 100% cotton.


(that's an intentional stripe... yeah that's it.  Or I might have run out of yarn 5 rows short of the end...  Grin )

No project notes on this one because it was exactly the same needles as the first one. 

Then, while I was at the store, I picked up a ball of Ruffle yarn and thought I could whip out a quick scarf for someone, but as I looked through completed projects at Rav, all I could think about was some sort of burlesque show with a feather boa.  Needless to say, I couldn't gift a ruffle scarf after that.  Instead, I came up with a child's skirt.



The pattern I created is available, for free, at http://karlierobinson.com/2012/12/frilly-skirt-free-pattern.html

And since the last minute was screaming towards me, I decided I should knit one more cowl, but this time I needed a change of pace and even gave it the worst name possible...

Introducing the Mullet Cowl! (Business in the front, Party in the back!)

The transition between white and multi


The all white side


The mulit-colored side

Free pattern for the Mullet Cowl is available at http://karlierobinson.com/2012/12/mullet-cowl-free-pattern.html

Oh, and while I have your attention, I should also mention that the Flint Handmade Yarn Brigade is attempting a massive Yarn bombing this spring and I'm coordinating the pieces for the top.  The theme of the top is Yarn across the miles (or something like that) and we're looking for blocks that come from a distance. 

If you're interested in helping, there's more information at http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/flint-handmade-yarn-brigade/2390121/1-25

Anyway, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the patterns.

Yeah, I'm not sure what I was thinking when I bought the ruffle yarn, but I'm glad my adhoc skirt pattern will get some use.
