Final Knitted Gifts

All done! And it's December 23. Not bad, especially considering that some of these were rather last-minute ideas.

Here's the set I made for our friend Chris. The mitts are his Christmas present, and the hat is for his birthday...the poor guy's birthday is December 26.

These are the potholders I made for our neighbor. I think they'll serve very well. I'm thinking about making some more for myself, but in red (my kitchen is red and white).

Here's a close-up of the texture. I used linen stitch, so they're quite dense. This would make a good hot pad, too.

It took about two days to make them. Boring knitting, but I like the end result.

An early Merry Christmas, everyone!

Thank you. I love stash diving. Believe it or not, I found the green and off white yarns at the thrift shop!
