Absent, but "present" !!!!

Hi girls!!!!!
The time flies very quickly while busy in making a lot of gifts for family and friends in occasion of the coming Christmas ..... next week!!!!!
So I was absent from Blogland, but I had to in favour of the "present" commitment!!!! ;oD
I had taken a lot of pictures of all my works, but I'll show you just a few, ok ???

As you can remember (HERE), I was knitting a scarf with stripes (the Long Striped Scarf, from Fiona Goble's knitting book Scarves and Cowls, 36 quick and stylish knits) ....

.... and from the same book, in the meantime, I knitted even the Pompom Scarf, that is like the following ....

.... and I tell you, they are so different and so beautiful together ...

I crocheted a couple of necklaces, too !
The pattern is the same (my own design!), but I did use two different kind of yarns, so two different sizes of hooks ....


... and I made another one with buttons and beads ....

... then a bunch of hats ....

.... there are more, but I'll show you the rest another time!!!!!
The pattern I followed is free and you can find it HERE !!!

I had even to crochet (my "little" sister request !) two Totoro hats (do you remember the first one?) ...

.... slightly different from each other !!!!

Then a different kind of hats ....

..... sweet little decorations, nice to gift to a friend who was hosting a Christmas party last week !
The photo tutorial ? Have a look HERE and have fun in making them !

I've tried something new (still my own design!) for a couple of chilly friends ...

yes ... hot water bottle covers !!!!

.... So I was not kidding !!!! I was really busy !!!! ;oD

Everything is all packed now in my luggages : tomorrow we are flying back to Italy for the Christmas break ....
..... but I will pop again next week for the Season Greetings !!!!!

xxxx, Alessandra
