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...
