I want to read and learn all I can, write thoughtfully and truthfully, live according to reason and ever more mature wisdom, and savor every wonderful little gift of life.
As promised, here is my gallery of knitted gifts that I made for family members for Christmas. I do still love to knit, but I’m not sure I’ll be attempting the knitted-Xmas-gifts-for-everyone feat again. Too much pressure! But I’m pleased with what I was able to make, and I’m eager to display my accomplishments!
Scarf for my husband’s niece—I followed the Tilted Ribby Scarf pattern by Vivienne Cleary on Ravelry
Zipper travel pouch—I made a few of these in different colors as birthday gifts for various family members last year. I made up the pattern myself.
Basic seed-stitch scarf for another of my husband’s nieces.
Potholders for my mom—these were actually a Mother’s Day gift, not Christmas.
Scarf for my husband’s sister-in-law—simple garter stitch with fringe
Scarf for my aunt; inspired by the Eton’s Scarf pattern by Jennifer Refat on Ravelry
As requested, a “red with some green in it” scarf for my mother-in-law, also inspired by the Eton’s Scarf pattern
Simple garter-stitch scarf in a (specifically requested) soft multi-color yarn for another loved one
Another simple garter-stitch scarf, for another sister-in-law
For yet another sister-in-law, another scarf inspired by the Eton’s Scarf pattern
Basket-weave scarf for my husband’s nephew
An extra-long and extra-soft basket-weave scarf for my best friend
Toboggan for my mom to match the scarf I made for her birthday—I made up this pattern based on the Eton’s Scarf pattern and other hat patterns I’ve used before.
Socks for my father-in-law…I still haven’t finished them! I followed the Hunters’ Socks pattern by Freshisle Fibers on Ravelry.
That’s about it! Thanks for letting me show off my handiwork. I’m so glad to have this fun and fruitful new hobby!
