Some Christmas Items

I finished up some items I planned on giving as Christmas gifts and a pair of socks for myself.

I made this hat for my Grandma D. because her other one went missing while she was in the hospital. I was planning on making one for Christmas, but this one will be going to her early:

Pattern: A Better Bucket [Ravelry Link] by Amy Swenson
Needles: US 7 and 8
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted in Verdeazul, 1 skein
For: Grandma D.


Next up is an actual Christmas gift. Grandma B. doesn't have a computer, so I don't have to worry about spoiling the surprise.

Pattern: Branching Out [Knitty] by Susan Lawrence
Needles: US 8
Yarn: Malabrigo Silky Merino, 2 skeins
For: Grandma B.
Notes: This thing GREW after I blocked it by about two feet. It is probably longer now than Grandma is tall.



Finally, a pair of plain old vanilla socks I made for myself.
Pattern: Basic Sock Recipe [Ravelry] by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Needles: US 2
Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock
