FOs -- Yorick and mittens and clogs, oh my

I’ve been knitting like crazy this week, trying to finish up all of my Christmas presents! And December birthday presents!

First, a scarf in KP Suri Dream…I liked the pattern in the new catalog but they don’t offer instant download, so I had to wing it. I used the Petite Bell Ruffle instrictions from Knitting on the Edge, did a little more decreasing and knit the scarf in stockinette with a garter edge.

Then…Yorick!!! This pattern rocks!! In natural WOTA. pre felting:

And post-felting:

I’ve been working on mittens for DD for a while…I just wasn’t enjoying them though, so they took forever to finish. They go almost to her elbows…snow mittens, in KP Merino Style:

Clogs for my friend’s twins, plus the bitty clog:

Hat with leftover malabrigo wool:

And finally, something that I didn’t knit, but my mom did:

She hates colorwork, but has somehow managed to survive knitting FOUR of these hats. :roflhard: You should see the inside…a true labor lof love, weaving all those ends! :shock:

Wow! Everything is wonderful! Tell your mom that the hat is fantastic–she’s a brave woman!

Wow, Julie - Fantastic stuff! I love the pink hat - it looks so soft and yummy. :cheering:

But what really stands out is the Yorick… LOVE IT!! :inlove: :heart: :inlove: How does it feel now that it’s felted? Is it soft or scratchy? (i’ve never felted anything before)


Thanks! :smiley: Yorick is slightly scratchy…if I had used the yarn the pattern called for (Classic Elite Lush) it wouldn’t be…but I used WOTA, which isn’t horribly irritating, but I wouldn’t give it to someone who was sensitive to wool.

Wow, you have been busy! I love them all!

Look at all that busy-ness!!! Very impressive as always Julie!!

YORICK IS AWESOME!!! As is that malabrigo hat…and that ruffle scarf looks SOOOOO cozy! NICEY NICE!

And, your MOM’S HAT!! WOOOWWWWWW!!! :shock: :inlove:

I don’t even konw where to start…everything you made is so cool. I do like that Yorrik scarf though…very fun!

Your mom must be very patient. I don’t know how she was able to get through 4 of those hats!

Yeah…she was all, “It only took me an hour to weave in the ends!!” :shock: :shock: :shock:

:happydance: Great job!! you have been busy :thumbsup:

Those little red mittens are too yummy! Oh, and the little tiny clogs and the little hats. Oh, I want to try that. Little red mittens for little girls are just the thing. And these scarves you’ve made! So this is what knit gifts are like.

GIRLLL…U been a knittin’ fool!! I SO LOVE :heart: :inlove: :heart: EVERYTHING!!! I love Nicky Epstein’s books… :inlove: :heart: :inlove: many socks will come from them :wink:
Your mom is very creative!! It’s in the genes :thumbsup:
