So after expressing some optimism that I might actually get all of my holiday knitting done on time in the last post, I totally dropped the ball and ended up only getting 2 of the 4 gifts done on time. In fact, I haven't finished anything since that post.
Here's something that did go out on time, a set of dishcloths for my grandma.
The term set may be a little pretentious for two dishcloths, but they're coordinated. In fact, the patterns for both came from the same book, Mason Dixon Knitting.
First is the Mason Dixon Dishcloth, which has already been posted about. It's yellow Peaches n' Cream.
Next is the ball band dishcloth.
This is the same yellow Sugar n' Cream, along with Peaches n' Cream Baby Ombre. The color pooled in the most awesome way, with diagonal strips of pink, blue and white. It looks great.
Look at the texture (ignore the slightly uneven stitches, this is before washing):
This was well received, and grandma is probably going to use them as decoration. I'm ok with that.
Probably my favorite (and most unexpected gift) this year was this:
Sock yarn from my knitting group. There's a ball of Lana Grossa and some Socks That Rock. STR socks are what's in the cue as soon as I get my MIL's Jaywalkers done.
And for a last little bit of Christmas spirit:
Santa or Hagrid? You decide.
