Quick gifts

Lots of birthdays in the spring!  Here are some of the gift items I've been working on for the last couple of weeks ...

Felted Clogs - before & afterFelted clogs following the Fiber Trends pattern.  These knit up very quickly using a double strand of yarn and US 13 needles.  I felted a pair for myself but plan to present the others with a humorous set of felting instructions so that the recipients can experience the amazing process (and the aroma of wet wool) for themselves.

Well, I just finished my 6th "London Beanie" -

I'm having a blast with circular needles (Addi Turbos ROCK!)

I made the first beanie for me and then decided that no matter what he wears, a 49 year old man will never look like David Beckham!

I left a couple out on the dining room table when my partner's kids came over.  They all said "you knit these?  They look just like the ones at Abercrombie and Fitch!"  I also mentioned them to a 24 year old guy in my voiceover class and he asked me to make one for him.
