Christmas Gifts

This year we budgeted much less for our Christmas gifts, so I decided to knit a few things, as well as learn to crochet a little.

For my sister-in-law, I knitted an infinity scarf with some crocheted flowers.


I asked one of our friends to model it:



For my 2 year-old niece, a little button-up scarf:


Crocheted Scarf for my other sister-in-law:



I made it from the instructions for this 'scale' or 'crocodile' stitch:


I'm still working on a few more things:

Scarf I'm currently knitting for my aunt:


For my Grandmother, I wanted to make a basic scarf and then add a leaf trellis with roses (her favorite flower):


For my mom, I decided to take a leap and crochet a sweater:



This is what I hope it'll look like in the end.... :


I just started a 'swirl' scarf, but I wanted it to have more of a lacy look
(it still has a way to go):



Update: Finished Christmas projects

Grandmother's scarf



Danny's Scarf (brother):



Dad's scarf: same as Danny's, but added legs to make it a gecko....he's a Biology teacher ;)


I crocheted a beard for the family White Elephant gift exchange :)
