Christmas knitting off the pegs & needles!

These have been done for a while now...but I've been too busy to post a pic. These baby's are for my Aunt. They came out nice and the stripes are perfectly matching - a beautiful thing!

I've also been busy on the looms. I made two Power Scarves for people on my Xmas list. The black sparkly one is for another Aunt who's name I drew for the family Christmas Eve party. (We do a sorta secret santa thing where we all draw one name from a hat and get a gift for that person.) I hope she likes it. I've never made anything for her so I'm sorta guessing at her taste. She wears black a lot so I think it'll be OK. I DON'T want to be one of those knitters that makes ugly things for people and then expect them to wear it! HA HA!

The Black sparkly one is made from one ball of Patons "Brilliant" yarn. If you are making a sparkly scarf I'd recommend this one. Unlike most sparkly yarns, the Brilliant is not scratchy! There is nothing worse then a scratchy scarf! The Brilliant is very soft and drapes beautifully.

The furry scarf is made from Moda-Dea "Chi-Chi" Yarn that I had some left over from a demo. It was most of a ball that I had left and it still made a decent length scarf. I'm partial to the Power Scarf pattern (especially at this time of year) because it makes quick gifts for people. It looks like its a complicated pattern, but it's easy and you get an entire scarf done in a evening of TV watching and looming.

Here's some pics of the scarves:

    Those socks are so great. I love that yarn. What yarn is it?
