Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone!

For a change this year, I was actually AWAKE to ring in the new year...Jason and I just stayed home and watched a couple of movies that we had wanted to see.

I have been lack in showing knitting lately...not for lack of, but just too busy to post! Here are some of the presents that I made...
This is a facecloth called "Grrrr". I found the pattern on knitty.com. It's too cute and easy to make once you figure out how to make the loops!

I made many a dishcloth as well for presents, but I really enjoyed making this one. It's a blue heron! The recipient of this dishcloth loves anything to do with the beach-lighthouses and birds too!
My dear hubby was kind enough to model the last minute gift of a scarf. It was last minute because I wasn't sure that my original gift would arrive in time to give to the recipient, so I ran to my LYS the Sunday before Christmas, bought the yarn (Manos del Uruguay in colorway #36), came home and started knitting. The pattern is "My So-Called Scarf" and is easy to make. (Have you noticed a theme???)

That was all of my Christmas knitting for 2007. If I plan on doing any for 2008, I need to get started NOW because I hope to be graduating from grad school in December 2008!

Thanks! I enjoyed making it, but the loops made me not want to make another for awhile...they aren't difficult, they just get in the way.
Happy New Year to you as well!
