I've finally got myself into gear with the photos of my Christmas knitting and I guess this would be a good time to talk about all of the knitting goodies I got for Christmas too.
In the end I finished 5 projects before Christmas and they all went in the Christmas box until I decided on a recipient. Only 3 items ended up being given away as it turned out I'd been rather efficient buying presents. I could have given a couple of people something extra but I decided against it a) because it is so easy to forget the value of handmade items and give them away as a 'little extra' when they represent a huge undertaking and b) because I had rather taken a shine to the cowl I made and rather liked the idea of keeping it! Last seen modelled on the cat, you can see why I wanted it can't you?

Also an improvised pattern in a hand dyed yarn, this went to my auntie.
Well, that was Christmas, I'll get back to looking forward again from now if you don't mind.
