Gift Knitting Continues


As you read this post, hum the song "Sleigh Ride" by Johnny Mathis, because that is the song that is repeating in my head since I woke up.  I have no snow (sniff) but the spirit of gift giving is alive in my heart.

The cowl, is the last of it's series...I think. I might make one more but it will be for me and not someone else. I fancy casting on a pair of fingerless mitts for me before a cowl.

I finish my gift knitting and then start another gift, just because I can and I'm having fun with my quick pick me up knitting projects.  These mitts.....Oh they were such a fast knit!  Now I'll be upstairs wrapping and humming.

  2. I love your mitts; that touch of red looks great. I'm also quite jealous of all your finished gift knits and organization!

  3. The cowl is lovely Karen! I think I'm going to have to go stash diving to see if I have the yarn to make one - or two (for the girls) for Christmas. Love the mitts, too!

  5. Pretty mitts and cowl Karen. I just cast off a pair of Toasty to add to the gift pile and cast on a pair of mitten, which I might just keep ;)
