More Christmas Productivity

Newly finished today:
The Dairy Queen Hat for Stan's Niece:

I did a bit of finagling on this one. I had to make it much smaller than it was supposed to, but it should fit her now.

The Puff Daddy for my Cousin Sarah:

The Puff Daddy for my Cousin Rebecca:

The Puff Daddys were so much fun to make! They literally took an hour, and barely any yarn at all. They're perfect for stash busting! That being said, I took these gifts as an opportunity to buy a couple more skeins of yarn at Brooklyn General. Sarah's is knit out of Misti Alpaca Chunky in the Sushi Colorway. It was so soft to knit with. I can't wait to knit another one out of it! The one of Rebecca was knit out of Malabrigo Chunky. Also a totally decadent yarn to work with. I have a lot of both of these left over, so they're either going to become a whole series of Puff Daddys or something really creative is going to have to happen with the rest of it.

So where are we now?
  • Socks for Stan's Mom
  • Dairy Queen Hat for Stan's Niece
  • Jacques Cousteau hat for Stan's Nephew
  • Half Socks for my brother's girlfriend
  • "Almost A Mystery" project for Beth
  • Flap mittens for my boss
  • Puff Daddy for Cousin Sarah
  • Puff Daddy for Cousin Rebecca

Jenn vs. Christmas
Jenn: 6 Christmas: 2

I think it's safe to say, however, that I'm winning Christmas. :)

LOVE the Chrimbo knitting - that's some lucky recipients right there!

Also LOVE the new title photo of you :o)

Thanks for tagging me for the meme - I'll get round to it one of these days!! (I'm the same way with eggs, especially when I think about what they are..... I'm also incapable of not doing anything!!)

Rhinebeck was fab.... maybe I'll be able to break the pattern and go next year too! - Thanks for being an entertaining driver ;o)
