Now that Christmas is over, I can show you a few more of the presents I made.
Pattern: Beaded Waves Cuff by Laura Nelkin
Yarn: Valley Yarns Superwash DK in Natural and Cascade Yarns El Cielo in Bordeaux
Size 6 seed beads
Pattern: made up as I went: the gloves are knit in 2×2 ribbing with garter stitch rows on both ends
Yarn: I Love this Cotton in White and Orangeade (I tea-dyed the gloves so the colours wouldn’t be quite so glaring)
For my youngest sister I decided not to knit anything. A few years ago I taught her to knit, so for Christmas I gave her some knitting supplies and a binder of patterns I had picked out and thought she would enjoy. She was very pleased and immediately picked out a pattern to start knitting with her Christmas yarn.
