Thanks! Yes, the Jasper Hat & Cowl is the thing that looks like it has interwoven rectangles. Free on Ravelry:

Coincidentally designed by a friend of mine. I worked my gift one in a dark green and light grey, but it’s hard to see by the dim light of my dining room fixture.


I’m glad you got a picture of the whole gang o’ giftbags…so very festive! :slight_smile:


Thankyou - Luckily I have a good friend who teaches young primary school kids - she organised a present compiling production line and came up with the idea of tying a bit of the matching dishcloth yarn to the top of each bag.


Here we go. 5 bluebirds of happiness, 4 cowls (1 not shown), 3 pairs of socks (1 bulky, 1 sock yarn), 2 hats, 2 pairs of mitts. Whew!


Phew! One still on the needles.


What a great collection! Well done you!


This is where I’m at now with my pile of mittens. I’d like to say that it was complete, but once I get stuck in a groove, I have to wait for it to wear off…


Lovely pile!!! Those blues are gorgeous. <3


Thank you! I had fun thinking of variations!


My pile included squad mitts, cabled hat, one peacealong cowl, one christmas stocking ( I

did the first one last year) baby dolls with crocheted wigs, and one wee bird i made with my hand spun. now I am exhausted.
Today I just sat in my spot and wound up balls of yarn for the next project


Your teacher gifts are beautiful! It makes me feel good just to see the picture. Thanks for sharing it with us.


I love winding balls by hand as well!


Followup: Happy to report two more items were finished by gift-giving time.

Last bloody pair of socks on the needles but they Will. Be. Finished. before 2017!


I made all my family members Christmas themed pillowcases this year.

I can’t figure out how to add pictures!!! I hope it’s okay to add a link to my blog post that has some:


Why “never again” for that cowl? It looks beautiful and cozy.


Lace weight yarn and I don’t get along. Feels like knitting with dental floss to me - not very fun. I think the skinniest I like for knitting garments is sport weight (will go down to fingering weight for socks).


I have tried to find that Blue Bird pattern but can’t. Do you mind telling me where to find it? Thank you!!
