Belated Christmas FOs

Warning: Picture Heavy Post

I realized the other day that I hadn't revealed most of my stealth knitting. Then I realized that it was so stealthy that I neglected to take pictures of some of it. Grr. I have a plea out for pictures from the recipients, but they're off skiing at Whistler, British Columbia this week so it'll be a while.

I had a brainstorm to knit everyone in my immediate family a Meathead Hat with decorations to fit their interests. Therefore, Durwood and Ann got bat hats, Ann's friend Anne, who works with a children's theater, got one with comedy and tragedy masks (mostly because I was excited about figuring out how to make the masks), I made a coral reef one for David and a ski hill hat for Abby. The last two are the ones I forgot to take pictures of.

Many got matching gloves or convertible mitts too.

I think my favorite of all are the gloves I knit for my mom out of Cascade Pastazza in a peacock blue. They turned out gorgeous. See? Here's Mom modeling them.

Hi, Barbara! You certainly have been busy. All your projects are super. (I stole your idea of putting pins on hats, and just made a black hat with a thrift shop pin for myself.) I love those blue gloves
