Knitting Community

By December 24, this thread will be the most beautiful collection of knitted items ever gathered.

I'm so excited at the thought of getting to finish an item and then get lots of oohs and ahhhs from people before I even wrap it. I'm even MORE excited to see what other people finish to give away!

I'll start us off, many of you have seen this one already--I finished a toilet paper cozy for my little brother and his new bride. It's a spicy tuna roll.

Marta,
Not always, but sometimes I do... like this morning I am knitting a baby hat, drinking my second cup of tea, and responding to a few comments. This may not sound comfortable to those knitters who can lay in bed and knit, but I have some back issues, and as long as I'm sitting up straight, I am fine.

I love to see how each person does the "same" pattern, too. There is always a little interpretation that goes along with knitting - and when you factor in different types and colors of yarn, it gets very interesting.
Susan manages to get a lot of knitting done. I, on the other hand, don't get nearly as much done since I discovered this wonderful community. But, yes, my computer and knitting are always next to me.
I couldn't figure any other way.... Sometimes I knit in my office while listening to podcasts, but mostly I'd rather be in my comfy chair with the good light. The second hat is washed and drying now. I'm working on the shoulder strap for the Origami bag... I'll have to seam it before you can tell what it is! Once I finish the bag, there are only 4 things left to do that are 'must knits'. I can't believe it! It does take a lot of pressure off my holiday season! And it's always good to know you all are out there taking care of us!
Finally the sun is shining so I could do some photography today! Here are the finished products...

This is the Turn a Square hat going to Sweden. I love the colors--New Denim Wool Merino with Noro Silk Garden 87...



Now---Talk about 'goofy' hats! haha The pattern is really my own mash-up aimed at using some yarn from the stash. For one of the twin granddaughters... KP Comfy Bulky in Flamingo with a bottom border of Patons Pooch in Spring Blush. The i-cord bit at the top I blame on Alison! hahaha It didn't seem right to just finish it flat!


I've put some progress photos on the other thread...
marta,
These are wonderful! --S
The Turn a Square hat is great. But your granddaughter's hat is way cute.
These are great! I love this second hat, it has so much character.
The "Turn a square" hat is neat. The little pink one is just adorable!
I know this is out of order, but I wanted to add the Purple Popcorn hat here so you could see the two hats for the twins together! hahaha They are crazed. I can't wait to get a shot with the two of them wearing these little wonders....

Marta, Gotta love this hat! How wonderful! So colorful... so soft and cuddly looking... I can't wait for the pic of the children wearing the hats either! --S
Marta, I can't wait to see a picture of these hats on the twins! These are so, so cute! This one must be done with Crystal Palace Popcorn. That is going to be so cute on them.
You are right about the popcorn yarn. I have all the info on my projects on Ravelry, but usually don't make a deal about the 'foreign' yarns here. The tops of both hats is Comfy Bulky and the popcorn yarn is doubled up with an old skein of KnitPicks Twist. It was perfect for this purpose.
