So Christmas is long-since gone, but...we'll ignore that fact. These are pictures of the things I knit for people for Christmas. ^_^
|Doctor Who TARDIS laptop case for André|
My friend André is a huge Doctor Who fan(proof: he bought a trench coat that looked like the Doctor's. Yeah.) and so when I saw this TARDIS Kindle case pattern, I had to make it for him. Of course, it took a lot of restarts, because I had to adjust the pattern so it would be laptop-sized and I was just going hit-and-miss until I found the right size.
Also, I hate embroidering letters with a fiery, fiery passion. I think it was the worst part about the whole thing. Grr. But aside from that, it was a fun pattern, and not actually that hard. It's my first encounter with two-color knitting...which, considering, went pretty well.
|Cush pillowcase for Maggie|
This was so. Much. Fun. Seriously, when I was done, I considered keeping it, because it's so soft and chunky, and put in the pillow and it's so soft and amazing and––I love it. It's really hard to see the pattern on the case in this picture, but it's there. This pattern is SO keeper.
|Scarf for Taryn|
This scarf used up the rest of the gosh-awf––lovely yellow yarn I used for Taryn's hat, and was ridiculously easy. Not very thick, but then, the yarn wasn't very thick. Easily remedied if I ever make it again.
|Mug Cover for Renée|
Ft. Link Action Figure from Zelda
|Mug Cover for Amanda|
aka, "Button, O Button"
These two were...interesting. The mugs were the slanty-type, so I had to add the strap above the handle so it wouldn't be stupid. These are wonderful 'cause they can be used for other mugs, and they are wonderful for allowing you to hold the cup of tea/coffee/hot chocolate when it is steaming. This is another pattern I'll keep. One of these days I'll make myself one and my hand-burning tea days will be over! Muahahaha!
That's it. I did knit my brother a stocking, because he tried to..."claim" mine. O_o And I gave my sister a hat(another pattern I love so it will probably appear again) but it was technically for her birthday, not Christmas. And I didn't manage a picture. Alas.
How about you? How go non-writing/non-school hobbies?
Twin Moment of the Day: She is on a plane now...and I was on a plane recently? (Yeah, I know, that's stretching it.)
On my Mind: The chocolate in my drawer...
