Straight to Finished

It's not even Christmas Eve and here I am finishing gifts.

1. Hat: This one worked up so fast it leapt right over WIP Wednesday and landed here. The pattern is Alex Tinsley's Catacombs which makes a nice warm beanie with a hint of slouch.

2. Mitts: Another quick knit. This is Susan Lawrence's Ragtop, a warm mitt with a fold over cuff at the top. I modified it to use the stitch patterns from Catacombs.

3. Potholders: The companions for the green ones. Topflappen pattern. Highly recommended for a cute quick gift or for your own kitchen update.

One more gift to go and then it's back to sweaters and socks for the long haul.

Take a look at Tami's Amis to see what other projects were finished this week.


  1. I love quick knits! Been churning out a bunch of hats myself. Now I am on to mitts. Great job on all.

  2. Sounds like you've got Christmas sorted :D I love the hat in particular - what a stunning colour, and a lovely pattern.
