Secret Santa

I participate in the Secret Santa at my school and I was so happy this year. My Secret Santa was the best. We all fill out a little form telling a little about ourselves. I of course mentioned that I like knitting. My Secret Santa got me some beautiful yarn from a local yarn shop. It's Trendsetter's Love, and I love it.
So of course I had to start knitting something right away. Because I couldn't find anyone else on Ravelry who has used this yarn I decided I'd make a scarf. My requirement was that it had to show off the beauty of this ribbon yarn. I settled on a Twisted Drop Stitch Scarf pattern that I found on Ravelry. I added an extra knit row after the last twisted drop stitch row to keep it even with 3 rows of knit between every twisted drop stitch row. It only took me about 2 days to complete it and it's super long, which I love. Yay Secret Santa!!!!And just to get you in the Christmas spirit here's a pic of the dog a few days before Christmas.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

I've been knitting away trying to make Christmas presents. I think I've finally finished them. Although there may be one more that I need to do. sister-in-law asked for a hooded scarf and had found a picture of one that she liked. I interpreted the picture and made my own pattern of it. I began to call it the scarf of death, because it seemed like it would never end. I'm glad it's finally done.
After I finished the scarf I decided to make her a pair of handwarmers that I had seen on Ravelry thanks to Nicola. I am very happy with the end result. I found that I really have to pay attention to the pattern and it gets a little tough with 5 needles, but they are beautiful. I actual plan on making myself a pair now. The annoying thing was that I had gotten a ball of Bernat Alpaca to make these and with 3 rows left on the second glove I ran out of yarn. Now I had to go get more yarn just for 3 rows!!!!! Well with the rest of that yarn I decided to make a quick scarf for my grandmother who just turned 94 in November. I added some pink mohair to it (her favorite color is pink) to give it some color. I'm calling it the Cotton Candy Scarf. It's very soft and I'm sure she'll like it.

So there you have it. I have been busy knitting, just not busy posting.
