Merry Gift – A – Long

Well, my friends, gift making has begun in earnest.  I have spent the last couple of months working on shawl patterns and now find myself mixing in the annual Christmas/Birthday gift making with my design business.  Works out nicely when the designs can be gifted…..

Becky loved it and I think it came out well! It is a one skein project using Malabrigo Worsted or you can use Manos Del Uruguay Maxima.  Either way, the result is lovely….and warm!  The pattern should be available by the end of next week here, and on Ravelry. I’ll keep you posted!

Next, I am working on a Crochet Hat for Emma’s best friend, Esther.   I’ll be using these lovely African Flower hexagons. You can find the pattern for these, here.

Not joining as I go…I’d much rather seam these into the shape I want for the hat…something fitted, I think!
I’m also working on a couple pairs of socks for Mom and Hubby, both DK, so no biggie. Should get them done with no problem.  And a two-needle hat is in the works for Dad and David, which may end up being a free pattern, if everything works out!
For now, I’ll get back to my stitchin’ !
