Christmas Knits

As I promised in an earlier post, now that gifts have been delivered I can show some of what I've been working on this last month.  The biggest gifts were for the girls.  Gracie's Christmas Coat and hat and for Charlotte a matching winter set in a lovely green.  They picked the colors they wanted themselves, but I certainly felt seasonally festive knitting in red and green all month :)
Don't know how easy it is to see in the picture, but basically it's one coat, two hats, one pair of mittens and a lace scarf.  The green hat and mittens are just a basic design -- not from a pattern, but I've put ravelry links for the other items.  

A few other fun items I knit were a hat and cowl for my Dad and Nancy.  The cowl is a new design by the Yarn Harlot called Encompass.  
We really liked how flexible the cowl is.  It can be worn in many ways....

Now I think I'll make one for myself :)  Merry Knit-mas!
