Finally, I'm getting around to sharing (or rather, showing off) a rundown of the holiday gift knitting & sewing as, I think, all have finally arrived with their recipients.
Oven mitts, 9 pairs (one not pictured) from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing.
Some fabrics and inner layers are from stash while some I bought with each particular recipient in mind. Some of the solid accent fabrics are recycled linen from thrifted skirts & shirts.
The palms are lined with 2 layers of cotton batting + 1 layer of polarfleece fabric. The backs are lined with only one layer of cotton quilt batting . The interior lining fabrics were cut mostly from this fabric.
Fingerless mitts for my sister in law. pattern: 220 fingerless mitts in miscellaneous worsted weight woolen yarns in stash.
James Dean hat for my brother:
Aviatrix hat for the baby girl of friends:
Cambridge Watch Caps for the boys. Berocco Ultra Alpaca. They each chose their own color.
From our hens to our friends on solstice night:
There they are.
