More Christmas Gift FOs

I was running around like a mad woman finishing packing the night before my flight to SC in December that I didn't have time to post some more Christmas Gift FOs before I left. So here they are now.

First up is the Provence Throw. The yarn used was Classic Elite Provence Yarn in colorway Sky/Baby Blue. I only used a little over 7 skeins for this blanket. I do, however, have 9 skeins leftover to make something else with it. Remember I told ya'll that this yarn was destined to be a different blanket years ago? Well that is why I have so many skeins leftover. Anyway, the recipient of this blanket did remember the yarn from all those years ago and was thrilled to have received a completed blanket. I was told that he was going to sleep under it the night I gave it to him. (BTW, thanks to my photographer Lisa for taking this pic of me with the blanket)

Next up is the hat I knitted for Kim. I used Berroco Touche yarn in colorway Moss. This is a basic hat pattern that took a little over 1 skein of yarn.

Finally, a co-worker of mine had been asking me for a couple of months when I was going to knit him a hat. My response was always the same, "Where's the money?". To his surprise, I knitted him this Basic Ribbed Hat. He did not expect this at all! For this hat I used Knit Picks Shine Worsted in colorway Ebony. I used 2 skeins.

So I'm sure ya'll think this is the end of my Christmas FOs, but let me tell you, I will have 1 more to share on Monday!


  1. Woohoo! You are the knitting queen! The blue throw turned out stunning. How even it it! Maybe one day I'll be able to churn out the gifts too. (snickering uncontrollably) All that hard work & it's been done well.
