We wip you a Merry Christmas...

Look, one holiday knit gift done - a pair of Mitt Envys for SIL!
Mitt Envy 3
Oh, right. I gave them to her already, since she wasn't planning to be here for Christmas. And about five minutes after she left, realized I forgot to take pics of them first. So um, yeah, just imagine these in this colorway and tell yourself they look super cool.

My younger brother also got his Shedir on Thanksgiving, since he'll be abroad visiting the motherland over Christmas. He loved it!
(Dude, SO glad I finished that one in September.) That's two down!

Actually, make that three - FIL's beret hit the FOs on Friday night, yay! Just needs a good soak, block, and photog before it gets boxed up and giftified. But here's a sneaky peeky:

Right now, I'm working on my older brother's scarf. I ditched the surprise aspect in favor of letting him pick something out. Figured it was better he get a knit he likes and will wear than a surprise that ends up in the Goodwill box! (He may be a metrosexual, but he's still a boy.)

Now I just need to knit up MIL's hat and a surprise for Hubster and that'll be it for the holiday knitting, whoo hoo!

Ooo, love the mitts. But why did you embroider "suck me" on the sides?

Ha ha! Yes, boys will be boys! Let's hope he breaks the trend--that scarf is purty!

Very nice!

I hate it when a gift gets given before pictures... I've done that once or twice. Maybe she'll send you a pic of her wearing the mitts?
