Gifts given and received

Now I can show couple of gifts I made for Christmas. These mittens I knitted for my mum from the Freedom Spirit yarn that I bought from the crafts fair. I like the colour. It was easy to knit these to my mum since we have same size hands. Gladly she liked these too. :)

I showed here earlier the Drawn Thread's Home for the Holidays that I stitched. I finished it to a cube and gave it to my friend. It's the first time I finished my stitching this way. Next time I'll be wiser and I won't round the corners of the cube. The fabric on the back is the same one that I used on the sides.

I must have been nice this year since I got many great gifts from Santa. :) I think he has stopped by the book store since I got two Ken Follet's books and these two books. I have many good new patterns for socks since I got this Interweave's book. I already found at least two patterns that I'll definitely knit.

I have many knitting patterns for girly stuff and now I can also knit something to my husband. He already found a pattern he likes, black hat and mittens with red skulls and other figures. As soon as we go back home I will look for some yarn from my stash and start knitting them to him.

I also got a pink iPod Nano! It's a very small and cute little thing. :)
