I always like to make gifts. Generally, I do not knit a lot of holiday gifts because I hate the pressure of deadline knitting. Knitting is something I enjoy. Everything else in my life has deadlines and pressure. I don't want that for my knitting. But this year, I made some handknit gifts. Here are just a few. I modeled these pictures for Ravelry.
First up is the eternity Beaded Rib Scarf I made to go with Kayla's hat.
I knit BF a pair of festive green cashmere socks for Christmas.
A miniature cashmere sock ornament with the same yarn.
A couple of my kitschy little chickens for my step-MIL whose kitchen is decorated in chickens.
I also gifted some of my 2012 handknit Christmas ornaments - Let It Snowmen!
The Piece de Resistance was the denim blue Sampler Blanket I made for Kayla. Here's a picture before I put it under the tree. I finished it on Dec 23rd... but didn't have time to block it, so I made a blocking/washing lesson be part of the gift. It's currently down on the pool table drying. It looks great and so warm.
That's the most I've ever gifted for handmade gifts for Christmas. How about you?
