This year I haven't made many knitted gifts. I made my Dad some very long, very boring gray socks for his birthday but I haven't gotten a good picture.
The only other knitted gift I made was a cowl for my friend Ute from Suo ergo sum. Luckily she is a lot better with her camera than I am with my point and shoot, so at least I now have a decent picture of one of my knitted things
Riverton Cowl by Valerie Hobbs, a free pattern on Ravelry. The pattern is very straightforward and I highly recommend the pattern. The yarn is a discontinued bamboo-wool blend by Phildar. It's really soft but pretty beefy and Ute likes to wear it, so it was a good gift I guess!
