I was pleased to get a couple items knit up for Christmas gifts in time to actually give them to Christmas. I did have to give one of my little godsons a rain cheque but he's not even two so I'm sure he'll forgive me. Plus, I am almost done part of his gift so he'll have it soon enough, I hope.
I had a really relaxing Christmas and was able to get some knitting done on and after the 25th as well. It was especially enjoyable since the craziness of work and school in November and most of December didn't allow time for much else.
I was given some fabulous knitting gifts for Christmas. I got a couple skeins of Diamond Yarn Luxury Collection Baby Alpaca Sport that I knit up into a narrower version of the Gap-tastic Cowl. I'll post it in a future FO Friday post.
I was also given a gorgeous handmade drop spindle (purchased from Woven Wool Wear) and luxurious alpaca fibre (from Madison Creek Alpacas)! I'll need to learn the technique so that I can make some yarn that I can actually knit with.
One of my friends, who also loves to knit, gave me this book. Has anyone read it? :
