So . MUCH . FUN !!!!

Handknits were given of course.

Mom got a shawl, Les Abeilles by Anne Hanson.  It was knit in Skinny Bugga yarn in the Fairy Wren colourway.

Dad received a woven scarf in his soccer teams colours, red and white.  This was woven using Cascade 220.  I didn’t get many decent photos but I did get the obligatory macro and a shot of the crochet end I put on it.

I was given lots of knitting related things!!!!

A skein of vesper sock yarn in the ‘winter’s passing’ colourway.  And a set of sterling silver dpn’s!!!!  The dpn’s are really lovely to knit with.

I was given a sweaters worth of madelinetosh vintage in the copper penny colourway. 😀

I’m thinking one of the sweaters from Brave New Knits will be made from this.

Katie, of course, received a handknit as well.
