Christmas Gifts

I made the mistake earlier this year of giving out my blog address to a few family members. That means I can't post most of the gifts I'm making...just in case the recipients happen to stop by. But...I think I can post these...

This hat is from a pattern I've used many times. I found the pattern in the 2004 "Knit It!" magazine. My husband has a lot of these and loves them. He wears them a lot during the winter. I made them with Wool-Ease and they go through the washer and drier just fine. I love that! Easy care will be great for the young man that will receive this...


I've lost track of how many of these I've made over the past few years. I've made them in many colors and changed up the striping a lot. I even made one with words on it. I posted one last year that I made for hubby as an anniversary gift. This is one I made for myself a couple of years ago. It worked great to keep me warm on my morning walk today.


This is my first crochet project in a while. It's a scarf for another young man in the family. I used Bernat Denim Style yarn in Rodeo Tan. I think it looks kind of tweedy and perfect for a guy. I hope he likes it.


I've got a lot of stuff on my to-do list and the list keeps growing. I seem to keep adding projects to it too. I'd better get back to work! Have a terrific day!

I love the tweedy scarf. I think it perfectly suits a young guy aesthetic! Your list may be getting longer but you seem to making good progress nonetheless! Here's hoping today you just blast through the FO's!

The hats look great! and so does your CROCHETED scarf. I loveee that Bernat denim. It's so soft and fluffy. I've made a few hats and scarves out of that. I do love the tan though. Keep on hookin' gf.

I was just thinking last night that I need to cave and make a hat. I may be borrowing your pattern!
