Christmas Presents

Its really exciting to be able to show you a few of the presents that will be finding their way under some Christmas trees next week....

This chunky cowl has a mobius twist and is hooked in Sherlock stitch..with half trebles...

 ...another half treble Sherlock stitch strip ready for the twist and to be sewn into another chunky cowl.
This is the Artesano Aran yarn highlighted here.

A hanging ornament..based on a Tie Fighter for a Star Wars fan

 was restyled and adapted from a square washcloth pattern
with a dc border and some surface embellishments.

This doughnut began as a pincushion pattern 

to which a needlefelted frosting of chocolatey Teeswater curls was  added

and a filling of toy stuffing with short ends (from my big Christmassy project!) !

All the above were stash busting projects:
2 cowls - 90g
Tie Fighter - 8g
Doughnut a hefty 27g
Total 125g

As even more of a tease...(the 'trifle' of scarlet buttons  had you hooked)...
 I'll leave you with one of the Big Christmas projects all wrapped up!

Those cowls look particularly warm & snuggly ;) And what! is in that parcel?! I've been knitting, knitting trying to finish this scarf for daughter (who is home tomorrow ... how am I going to hide it from her while I knit?!). Wendy x
