So, I've been dying to post my Christmas knitting, but I couldn't because some of the recipients are on Craftster and might see!  Wink But now, gifts have been given and I can show you what I've been up to.

First, the Police Line Scarf for my daughter, who says this is the best scarf ever. This pattern came from Craftzine. Knitted in I Love This Yarn. It's basically doubled over, so it's a very warm scarf.
And for my son, Exterminate! Exterminate! Exterminate! This scarf is my own design, influenced by other Dalek scarves I saw here and elsewhere. I hand charted those Daleks on graph paper and added oh, about 10 or 12 Exterminate!s in the middle. Again, I Love This  Yarn (which is very soft, btw) and it's doubled over. I hope to have a pattern for this up on my blog soon. I just need to recreate those charts in Excel.
And The Tentacle Scarf, for my daughter's boyfriend. Again, my own design. It was based on a conversation we had back in the summer about tentacles and their place in anime. I hand wrote the pattern for this one too. If I can decipher my handwriting (I swear sometimes it looks like I escaped from Arkham Assylum only long enough to write a note!) I will post that pattern, too.

Those are all fantastic! I would have been thrilled unwrapping any one of those.

Thanks! I was really happy that everyone seemed to like their presents. It was a lot of fun thinking of things that were specific to that person and I think that made them even more fun for the recipients.

What an awesome Santa you are!  Cheesy  I bet your recipients loved them!

My favorite is the Exterminate scarf: you did a great job graphing the Daleks!

I think the police scarf will be a project on my list very soon. That is so awesome!
