Remember when I said last week that I had too many Christmas FOs from 2014 to show them all in individual posts? Well, we're going to do another two-fer today. First up is the shawl I made for my Grandmother: Canyonlands Shawl This one was like working two separate projects. you knit a basic stockinette… Continue reading Two More Christmas 2014 Knits
I'm going to post two of my Christmas 2014 knitted gifts in this one post, because: There are so many of them that it will take forever at this rate; and I didn't take many pictures of these two knits. The first one is: Man Hands Mitts for my BIL These mitts were a last-minute… Continue reading Christmas FO Two-Fer

Several members of my S’n’B have made this shawlette (or is it a scarf?) and so I’d… Continue reading Rondelay FO

I was ambitious this year, and knit (or crocheted, or even wove) something for each of my immediate family members. It came to a full dozen handmade… Continue reading FO: Multifarious
