Misc gifts I gave for Christmas

I made quite a few gifts to give this Christmas. Some of them I can't post pictures of yet, because they haven't gotten to their intended recipient quite yet. But here are a few of them.

My daughter has been coveting the tri-loom shawls I make, so I gave her this one. It was done awhile ago (that is her modeling it for me, actually), but was the colors she wanted. So it just had to go to her.

My sweetie's sister likes pink. Really really likes pink. So I made this cotton candy confection for her. It is soft and snuggly, and quite quite...well, pink.

My husband has been gently hinting that it might be his turn to get hand made wool socks. This is some of the yarn that I dyed up awhile ago. It was inspired by candy canes, but it also happens to be in his SCA heraldic colors. He wore them around the house all yesterday, and was very pleased.

My sweetie picked out this sock yarn for his mother, and I made it up into a nice snuggly pair of socks for her. It is a wool/nylon/bamboo blend, which is lovely to the touch. The colors reminded him of one of the first vehicles she had. I even got the stripes to match up pretty well on this set!

There are more pictures to come, in a day or so. Stay tuned!


  1. Wow! These are spectacular. Your tri-loom woven shawls are beautiful! You should sell these. I'm so impressed with everything that you made. :)

  2. Thanks so much! And actually, I still have a few of the shawls in my Etsy shop, at . Look under the 'handwoven' section. I'm going to have to re-stock pretty soon though. Time to pick some more color combinations!

  3. I love the socks - looks like your sock machine is coming in handy ;)

  4. I'm having great fun with the machine. I've promised the kids each another pair of socks, and they gave me some absolutely luscious wool/nylon/alpaca sock yarn for Christmas to use for myself. Such fun!
