Here are a few knit objects that were Christmas presents last year.
These were hats for my dad and FIL based on a simple WWII pattern. The FIL loves WWII history, so I thought making a hat from a pattern used for soldiers back then would be appropriate. I liked how his came out so much that I made a second for my dad. :-P
This is a cowl I made for a friend. First time I've really knit with more than one color, even though I kind of cheated. Made with a seed stitch on circular needles holding the black yarn together with the blue yarn.
There was also a pair of fingerless gloves, or "gauntlets" as my brother put it - however I forgot to get a photo of them.
