Holiday Knitting

I have always knit gifts for the holidays, but never like this year. I really want this Christmas to be meaningful, and I want the gifts to be true gifts. See when you knit something for someone, you think of the person so much. You chose the yarns for them, you pick a pattern for them, or you design one with them in mind, and with every stitch you think of them. I think my friends and family know that and truly appreciate the gifts.
I have been knitting so much over the last few weeks, and this is a gift for me too!
So far I have 4 berets, 3 hats, 3 scarves, a pillow, 1 pair of socks, a toy rabbit, a neck warmer.

My handspun egg is turning into Ysolda Teague's Ishbel shawl...for Mom...

Ishbel is going to be gorgeous with your handspun.

Christmas is an even busier time for knitters, don't you think?
I was looking for the Corolle pattern, is it posted and I just don't see it? thanks.
And what a beautiful red.

You've been knitting up a storm and doing a wonderful job, too!

Your Ishbel is very pretty and I love that you've made it with homespun. Spun by you?
