Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas
I want to show you guys a scarf I made for my Aunt Gina (my mom's fraternal twin.)(BTW, I have a twin brother... Interesting, huh?) Here's the scarf:

I knit the scarf up in 4 hours or so, it was a really quick knit. I used size 15 knitting needles and Wool-Ease Thick n' Quick yarn. It was a dream to knit. I also made a pair of fingerless, blue gloves using this pattern for my cousin Melanie. (Sorry, no picture!) I plan on making another pair for me in pink. I also made 2 Black Apple dolls for my second cousin Faith and cousin April. I used the pattern available on Martha (Have I ever mentioned I am officially in love with Emily's artwork? ) (Oh, in case you did not know, Emily is the creator of the Black Apple artwork and dolls... but most of you know that.)

I made a scarf for the blue one and a felt collar for the pink one. What do you think?
I don't want to seem greedy and make a list of all the things I got, but I just have to show you this:

It's the sketch on a lunch bag made by Candy Glending! Her work is superb... I just have to have one of her messenger bags! Take a look at this one: Click Here! Check out her etsy: Candied Fabrics

Using my Christmas money, I bought a bunch of goodies today:

...Including my first pair of bamboo needles! I have to say I LOVE them! I'm using them to make the pink gloves I mentioned earlier. Oh, and I got half-bead eyes! I'm excited to try them out, as I've been using acrylic paint on my amigurumis- until now! :] Have a great New Year!
