Some projects done for Christmas

I have been dutifully knitting away getting little things done for my daughter and her kids, and thought I would post a couple. I am now heading into hats and mitt territory.

The afghan I made my daughter turned out HUGE. It has to be about 7 1/2 feert by 6 feet! Not what I had in mind when I started!

Thanks Chico! I only wish I knew HOW to crotchet. That throw was knitted and I think it took any bug I may have to try again out of me for good!

Very nice, qmc! I love the striped sweater and hat ensemble! I used to knit before I discovered an affinity for yarn-gumming dogs. Turns out yarn just isn't as easy to work with when it's wet

QMC,I think crocheing(sp?)is easier and faster than knitting,I learned from a girl at work,but all I could do was Throws and Scarves
