January List: FINISHED!

Ta da! I just finished my 5 January gifts. I ended substituting out one gift, as I previously posted, and one of the gifts I have ended up adopting as my own (the purple Frivol hat). But I started a second Frivol hat, also to be finished before January is over, to make up for it. So that totals 5 gifts plus 1 new hat for me!

Gifts, clockwise from bottom: Textured handtowel, my own design, knit with 2 skeins of Rowan Cotton Jeans; Frivol hat, knit with leftover Shearer's Yarn (which I cannot get enough of!) from last year's sweater; Fiesta Mittens knit with Claudia's handpainted and Louet Gems; Simple 2x2 ribbed hat with pompom, with yarn mailed to be last year from Sera, for whom I made those fingerless mitts, with improvised cables.

Oh yeah, and they're all knit from my stash. Whew!

What an impressive collection - you did yourself proud and certainly deserve to keep that hat for yourself.
