I did knit one gift this Christmas - a scarf for my dad. But for obvious reasons I didn't dare show it on the blog (eventhough I doubt that my father reads my blog!)
The scarf is grey and knitted in a simpel pattern - seed stitches - and the yarn is wool, which doesn't itch. A very important detail when it's going to be used close to the skin on one's neck...at least if I should decide it.
Another Christmas present - the one for my niece Ida - was related to knitting too.
Ida has recently started knitting, so I bought her several knitting needles in different sizes, a measuring tape, needles for sewing in yarn and a gauge ruler.
