Actual pictures!

Hey there, I hope my confession didn't turn anyone off me....... I really am not a super b*&ch, I just have secrets like everyone! You should go back and check out Knitting Up A Storm to see the updated post that she created...... she summarized all the contes responses. Way to go Knitty Knitter!

See, I didn't fib, I do have pictures for you to see..... because I love to show off a bit. (What knitter doesn't really!)
Up first I think will be a completion shot of the We Call Them Pirates hat I made for my brother. As my fellow Knit Nighters know I was quite concerned that this hat would actually not fit my brother! Sorry gang, it did!! I will make you pretty other knit gifts for the holiday! I promise! He was such a great sport about modeling for me! He loves it and wants it, but I have to block it still!

Next are a few of the knit scarves that I have been working my way through. I still have quite a few to get through, but at least they go pretty fast. You can see both recent star scarves in this one. I think I still have a few of those left to create this holiday too! LOL, but I know that you have heard me share how much I like to make them anyway! All different types of yarn and combinations of yarns, I like to make the scarves great, thick and washable. That way whomever I give it to, they can't wreck it.

Finally I share a pair of Maple Seed Hats. I was introduced to the pattern on Craftster, but it is also very acessable on Ravelry, and I am too lazy tonight to add the links to my post........ okay I lied, but for some reason Ravelry isn't loading so I hope it will work later. I encourage you to try one if you like them, once you get the pattern repeat down they knit up super fast! It is So satisfying knowing that you are done a gift!

The white one is mine, you can see it in my profile pic up top, and the reddish one is off on it's way to my Grandmother! I guess I will have to mention that she not wash it in the machine! LOL I have a few more that I am knitting, these were both knit in Patons Classic Merino. It works great and keep you toasty plus you have the added bonus of making two from one ball of yarn! I am also going to try it in some of the WOA that I have left from my Wicked. So there you have it. I hope to share more and see more of what your fingers are knitting up this Christmas too! Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

Well, you didn't scare me. I think it is awesome you were willing to participate.

I love maple seed hats! I have the pattern and Beaufort (sp) too. I want them both, but I have never managed to decide what to knit them out of and so never made either. LOL silly

Wow! That's a lot of FO's! The "call me pirates" hat looks great! You have a lot of scarf presents to give out! Awesome!

Steph said...

Busy busy bee! Lovely! That pirate hat turned out great!

Jan said...

WOW! Have you been busy. I always say I am going to knit presents and then never do. The minute I have to do something it remains undone. For example, I said I would finish my grey sweater and there it sits. You are really impressive with all your FO's.

I thought your confessions were funny! Great job on the hats, and I love that pink scarf with the verigated yarn. What yarn is that?

Aimes said...

yeah hat fit:) told you nothing to worry about!!
Your confessions I feel are the same as mine.. except for the excellent knitting part.. i am still working out the gauge thing and I'm sure if i knitted a pattern you knitted it would suck.. So note to self.. never knit a pattern you've knitted!! LOL But i do know.. whatever i knit (which isn't as good as yours) you will still appericate because i too have an ego, you i know you like to stroke it as i like to stroke yours:) looooove
