A little Christmas gift

This was the first Christmas ever that I was asked by friends and family to knit their Christmas presents. I really felt that I had come to an impasse in my knitting and I knew I had to make a success of everything I was asked to make, otherwise my knitting wouldn't be taken seriously by my family.

Sam and Dave came for a visit this last weekend and I'm glad to say both of them came with their home made knitwear. I knit Dave a warm woolly hat , which he wears ALL the time ! , he does take it off for bed , lol


 


And Sam designed her own gloves , chose the colour , chose the fair isle designs she wanted incorporating and chose the style of glove. She says they are perfect !




 I worked them in the round , which I found rather fiddly for me, but the results are worth it , no side seams and the fair isle pattern just continues round , perfect.









She loves the part of the mitten that comes over the fingers to keep them nice and warm.










Wonder what Christmas gifts I will be making next year.

  1. Those mitts are gorgeous. It is always nice when a handmade gift is appreciated.
