Happy New Year!!

Now that Christmas is over I can share some of the gifts that I made. First is a tea cosy I knit for my Uncle. I used Cascade 220 Paints which is a superwash wool. I used a darker variegated yarn so if it got tea dripped on it it would not show. The pattern is called “A Cup of Christmas Tea” that I purchased at Ravelry. I had to learn to do an I-Cord cast on and an I-Cord bind off. They were pretty easy and give the edges a real finished look.

The next gift I knit was the “3 A.M. Cable Hat” that I made for my cousin. I used Cascade 220 in a blue/black twisted colorway.

Then there are these adorable wine bottle toppers I knit to put on the wine I was bringing to parties.They were a big hit and I plan on making more next year. They were made with regular Red Heart.
