Would love to have another Crochet Dude pattern book! He’s my hero!

Congrats Anne!

In related news of yarn—-

I’m almost finished with a Christmas gift that was gifted along with an IOU, a pair of fair isle fingerless mitts:

They’re “Finishing Touches Fingerless Mitts” from Kerin Dimeler-Laurence. The pattern was from Knit Picks, actually offered in kit form earlier in the season, I subbed my own yarn colors.

I wanted to show Mike’s Hat—– a gift I was so happy to give this year. Mike requested a warm hat with cables and I was thrilled to knit it for him. It turned out great!

It’s the “Hat Most Likely to Succeed” from Alexandra Virgiel. Knit in Cascade Eco, fast and easy yielding a good looking hat I’d be happy to knit again. The best part is that Mike loved it—– fabulous!

Tree of Life fingerless mitts were another holiday knit gift. Lots of fun to knit—– the photo is from the designer, Jenny Williams. Mine actually look almost exactly like this, just a little darker.

The house empties out tomorrow night and I’m planning on dissolving into a puddle of exhaustion about 10 p.m. Knitting will follow after a bit of sleep—— but to work on the long languishing Eiffel Tower Shawl or the languishing since Christmas knitting took place Clarus… that is the question. I did receive some lovely yarn as a gift, several skeins of silk from Himalaya Yarns but honestly I have no idea what to knit with it.

It seems over the next few days will slowly get back to normal with full workload returning just after the New Year. Can’t wait to see what YOU’VE been working on!

    Your gifts look great! I’m sure your new yarn will tell you what it wants to be.
