I knit some of my Christmas gifts this year!

My mom loves to cook, but she never has enough washcloths and towels. We use a lot of paper towels because of this and she hates throwing that much paper away. I made her four cotton washcloths from the book Mason-Dixon Knitting. The fourth washcloth was knit from a red, white, and green Christmassy yarn, but I couldn't find it when I took photos.

I sent a Jayne hat and a Kittyville to my Firefly-loving friend Morgan. My brother thinks that the colors are too bright, like "McDonald's arches and ketchup", but they're fine to me.

I even made a Jayne hat for myself from the leftover yarn. A woman at my LYS told me about another person who had bought Jayne hat yarn a few weeks before. The more Jayne hats, the better!

My dad wears his shoes all around the house in the winter. His feet are cold, but he tracks dirt all over the house. I felted a pair of Fuzzyfeet for him to keep his feet warm.

I only have a photo of one, but I gave a pair of Fetching to a dear friend.

I also started on an Invisible Stripe scarf for myself. The scarf looks a bit lopsided in the photo, but it's knitting up nicely.

I never thought I'd hear myself say this but...those dishcloths look lovely  Grin and the rest of your gifts too.

Use what talent you possess - the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best

Haha, I love the dishcloths as well.  I was going to make some for my sister, but the apron I made her took up too much time Tongue

Great work!

I learned to knit roughly a year ago.
