It is always nice to give a handmade gift. All of these things were welcomed and appreciated by the recipient.
My husband has washed and worn his "Rustic Cables" cap several several times over the year.. (well I did the washing..) It has held up fantastically by the way.
Speaking of sweaters... I've completed 7 sweaters/knitted tops for myself this year!
But I have worn them a lot and wish that I had made more!
I like all of the projects I have mentioned so far, but I LOVE the projects I have knit for my daughter this year. There is something about knitting for little ones. It's just fun and gratifying to make tiny things. And its so sweet to see the excitement of giving a small child a new knitted surprise.
I love the toys the most. They were the most fun to knit. The hats have turned out to be very practical since she wears them all of the time, and that seed stitch coat is still gorgeous, but sadly too small... All of that work... such little payoff.
The Legwarmies that I designed ended up being a huge hit on Ravelry! There are so many projects!
Well that wraps up 2008.
This year I plan on changing things up a bit. I have big plans for myself and my knitting.
You'll have to keep reading to find out.
