A Handmade Christmas - Part 4, What I Made For Everyone Else




You already know about Dad's Cobblestone Pullover made from our Jacob wool.
 
Well...I couldn't let Christmas go by without Mom also receiving something made from the first year's shearing!  Honestly, I don't know who was happier about it....Mom, who wore the thing all weekend over multiple shirts, or Dad, who was delighted that Mom also had a first year garment.  As for myself, I have to admit that it was a whole lot more attractive when worn than it was in the box.

US 8, 5.0mm needles

Heart to Heart Scarf for my Mother In Law, Emily

Still to be completed (EEK!), although I have good cause:
Red socks for my grandmother
American Girl Doll coat for my niece

Love the ribwarmer. I wasn't sure how a color blocked one was going to work, but it does!

How neat that they both have woolens from the first year.
