I’m afraid none of the pictures of the gifts I made for the ladies in my family came out well, so I am grouping them all in one post. My sister wanted some fleece socks so I made her two pairs. These were the same as the ones I made myself a few months ago, except they are full on knee socks, which is awesome. So toasty! I have some more fleece to make knee socks for myself. (Come to think of it, what am I waiting for? I need to work on these today.)
My mom asked for a fleece vest. I am still fiddling with this pattern. She wanted it longer than the one I made myself (which is definitely too short), so I added a few inches. I also flared the hem ever so slightly so it would fit over the hips better. With the extra length, it would be better to move the pockets up a couple of inches, and I’m not entirely happy with the shape of the armholes, but otherwise, it is cute, especially in this Christmas tree print.
My niece wanted yoga pants like the ones I made my sister for her birthday. I have these down to a science now and only wish I had gotten a better photo.
Finally, here is a skirt I made for myself for the holiday season. Again, a bad pic, so you can’t really tell that it has gold highlights on it. This is a simple elastic-waisted skirt that is so quick to put together. It looks great with the gorgeous boots I bought myself in December.
I forgot to take a picture, but I made my sister-in-law a very cozy, very bright pink cowl scarf (the ends are sewn together so you loop it around your head twice). I had made one for myself out of a looks-like-cashmere-but-it’s-really-polyester fabric and I loved it so much, I decided to make one for her as well. One of these days, I’ll take a picture of mine and explain how to make it, because it takes 10 minutes, looks awesome, and is super-duper warm.
