Christmas Wallpaper

Yup, I'm still posting pictures of all my holiday gift knitting (and sewing). Hope you enjoy, and leave links to your holiday projects in the comments for me to look at, too! 

Wallpaper Cowl

Gifted To: My Mom. Dare I say, I gave her two cowls for Christmas this year. She requested one of the samples from my Chevron Sunshine pattern, but then while I was knitting this one up as part of the Wallpaper Cowl KAL, it just kept calling her name. When she opened this one first on Christmas morning, she said "This is not the one I wanted... but I like this one better!"

Closeup on Wallpaper Cowl

Pattern: Wallpaper Cowl by Emma Welford. 

Yarn: Knit Picks Gloss DK in Hawk and Fairy Tale, and Knit Picks Gloss Fingering in Kenai. I really, really love these colors. I'd been wanting to use Fairy Tale for something all Fall, so this was my chance! And I love the contrast color lining in the design. 

Needles: US 6. I was totally boring and followed this pattern completely as written. It really didn't need anything else! 

WP Cowl

Watched while knitting: All of the possible Christmas movies I own. Which is not as many as the Halloween movies I own, but it's a lot: White Christmas, Holiday Inn, Nightmare Before Christmas (it's both! Chris says it's just for Halloween but he's WRONG), Home Alone and Love Actually. I like to get into the season with my film-watching.
