Holiday gifts

It started with 20 skeins of white wool from Ireland. I like to give people gifts from my travels, and so I started turning that yarn into gifts. First I had to learn to make cables, and so I started with the reversible cable scarf for the Ravelympics. That scarf turned out so well, that I did another as a gift for my father-in-law.

Then I wanted to do some mittens and hats. I found a Vogue Knitting on the Go book to help with that. But I needed more color for these mittens... thus the Kool-aid experiment. If you recall, there was some electric blue yarn too, but in an attempt to tone-down that color, I completely ruined it. Thus the mittens have two colors rather than three.
And then there were hats!

And then to mix things up a bit, I added some blue sparkle to this one.
If you have access to Ravelry, you'll get a kick out of looking up this Tivoli Aran yarn page - it's almost all me!
