Happy New Year

Now that Christmas is over and presents are given I can post up the pictures of the stuff I made for other people.
Moebius scarf for my brother (Rowan can't remember), and hat (pattern courtesy of Wollywormhead knitted inAdriafil New Zealand) for his partner.

Please note also the cards I printed off to go with my presents. These read : "Handknitted with love by Rachel" and contained care instructions for the finished article. Unfortunately the only people who appeared to notice these were my sisters, the others just got bundled up with the wrap so I probably won't bother with this detail again!

Moebius scarves for brother in law (brown Noro something) and nephew (blue Debbie Bliss Maya).

Bag and finger scarf for niece (Adriafil graffiti and Baroque (I think))

Hot water bottle cover (Adriafil New Zealand again) for my not auntie (she's my godmother and a friend of my mum's but we've always called her auntie).

Bag for my sister Ro. Made with some red chenille from a charity shop, some green baby cashmerino and lined with green velvet from the mill shop at Denholme Velvets.

The last present was for my other sister Ann, this was the clapotis I knitted which featured on an earlier post. I was a bit worried that she might not like it, but she did so that's okay. A productive Christmas.

Have started a new project but I can't tell you what it is 'cos it may well go wrong. The yarn I'm using is completely different from that specified in the pattern so it may be that I'm knitting a tadpole (ie, something that will become a frog).

Wish me luck.

Lovely, lovely presents. The shape of that hat looks familiar ;)

Happy new year!

Beautiful presents - lucky recipients! I especially like the bag and matching finger scarf - lovely yarn and colours.
