Some hastily taken shots of gifts for my little brother and his girl. My gift knits are so often like this, practically wrapped and in the hands of  the recipient before I can even get a picture. These were seized upon with some pleasure and worn straightaway so I should have a managed a snap or two in person but  making them stay in the freezing cold while I went to get my camera seemed too cruel. So we've got these. 
The red is way off (better here) but the pompoms look rather fine I think. Thanks to the Mister for those, he's a wizard with the Clover pompom maker so saved me the time of knitting the bubbles as specified by the pattern - vital help in the elf factory. 

This elf is off to hide with the last two gift knits she should be working on and pretend that real work doesn't start again tomorrow. Why are the holidays always so short?


Gorgeous! I did the same frantic thing with a scarf for my sister...finished it on Christmas Eve and wrapped it at about ten in the evening! I am going to try and be more organised this year!!!

Beautiful and excellent everything got done. LOVE that scarf. And yes, the holidays are short, always. I am still getting over the shock of being back at work.
