Giftmas 2015 Knits!

Well, hello! Glad to be back here with you all, and I hope you had a lovely weekend. All of my giftmas knits are in their new homes, so I am free to share them with you!

Up first, we have Anemone's socks-just basic, top-down, with a 1x1 ribbed cuff and garter-edged eye-of-partridge heel flap. My fave.

Pattern: basic recipe

Next, I knit up a sleeve for my mum's Kindle. I just used a quick little four row/four stitch stranded repeat with a garter stitch band at the beginning, and I did an i-cord with the yarns held doubled for the button loop. Button is courtesy of my button jar, but I think it's an extra from a giftmas knit five years ago.

Pattern: made up on the spot
Yarn: Knit Picks Palette, "Golden Heather," "Abyss Heather"

Then I knit up a quick little something for my friend's toddler so he would have something to open when his parents got their cocoa mix. He's obsessed with cats, so I knit Beans the Cat with worsted weight yarn held double and US10.5 needles. He's a proper little tabby, and I really enjoyed watching him take shape.

Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Tweed "Dove Heather,"

Finally, another one of my friends from college commissioned a Calorimetry for her mother. I had knit my friend one several years ago, and it's such a quick knit that I was happy to do it.
