Family knits, 2009

by pambythesea

Oh, Christmas 2009 was the first and last time I decided to make Christmas gifts for everyone!  I was up all night on the 24th and still wasn’t done.  Oh dear!  

I made my dad a hat with earflaps to stave off the cold, cold Kimberley BC wind

My mom and stepdad got colourful hats that coincidentally matched their scarves.  Meant to be!  My stepdad’s hat is just a simple design of my own, and my mom’s is Rose Red by Ysolda Teague.  I used Blue Sky Alpaca’s brushed suri.

My sister Katy

I also designed my sister’s hat using Blue Sky Alpaca’s suri merino which I LOVE and may be my favourite yarn ever.  I still have a skein and a half left, and I have plans for a hat of mine own.
