Christmas FOs!

Without further ado, my Christmas FOs. I made it!

Shawl for my Gram. Sonoma Shawl pattern by Oat Couture. I used Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Antique Lace, and attached a loop and button instead of using a shawl pin as suggested in the pattern. My gandmother loved this, and so did my sister! I think I know what she'll be getting for her March birthday.

My nephew's stocking. I made this using a kit I bought at Patternworks this fall. The kit is put together by Annie's Woolens, using Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride.

Since I finished the shawl and stocking a week before Christmas, I decided to throw caution to the wind and try to churn out a pair of mittens for my dad. After a five hour knitting session on Friday where I started and finished the second mitten, they were ready to be blocked and given on Christmas Eve. Whew! I used Peace Fleece from the stash, and have enough left over to maybe make a little something for myself.

Must go lay down now. Too much chocolate... feel... weak....

Nice gifts! I'm sure the recipients were very happy to get them.

The shawl turned out beautiful. Did she like it?

Those are all gorgeous! I wonder if my grandmother in the nursing home might like that shawl. I notice the pattern says it's 15 inches long--is that enough to make it a shawl and not a capelet?
