More Hand Knit Gifts:

Here are a few more gifts I knit. I guess I was busy. This explains a lot - like why my craft space looks like it was hit by a tornado! I've been cleaning it all week (well trying), but I keep getting distracted by the computer.

Another Clemence Cowl
by Katya Frankel
Knit One Crochet Two Ty-Dy Yarn
US 7 Circular needle

Another Toast
by Leslie Friend
Classic Elite Portland Tweed - Ruby Red
Us 7 double pointed needles

I decided to add some embroidery details to a pair of Toast wrist warmers. This pattern is so versatile. I made five pairs of these in different colors for gifts.

Basic Men's Mittens (for my step-daughter's husband)
Pattern found here (modified to adjust for gauge)
Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky - orange (his favorite color)
US 6 double pointed needles

I love what you did to the Toasties :-) Bet they were well received as gifts. I'm starting my 09 gift knitting now! just finished an owl cowl and made socks last week - I'm on a roll ;-)
