The Christmas Knitting

I wanted to make sure everyone had their presents before I started posting here, but my brother and his family took off to California (wife=working; bro=not so much). So I’ll skip theirs, and show you some other things.

Pattern: Official Kittyville Hat, by Kitty Schmidt
Yarn:
Leftovers of Eco Wool from the Monster Sweater and Paton’s Shetland Chunky from the Twilight Mitts. Whoops–what Twilight Mitts?
Needles: US 8  (5mm) circs, bamboo,  which was a huge pain in the ass. Sticky? Youbetcha.
Made for: DameSister

Pattern: Transistions Stash-buster Shawl, by Lykkefanten (which is the best user-name. In my (addled) head, it combines licking and elephants. Who would not want to lick an elephant?)
Yarn:
Leftovers of Cascade 220, Elann Peruvian Highland Wool, and Elann Donegal Tweed,
Needles: US 8  (5mm) Knitpicks Interchangeables
Made for: Mater

This thing turned out huge! My mother is not a small woman, and I wanted to make sure it would envelop her. When I blocked it on the folded-out futon, I had to do it in two halves it was so huge. It was a colossal win, though. I think of all the things I knit, this met the happiest reception.
