I finally had a chance (or the inclination) to take pictures of some FO's.

Here they are:
This combo was part of my mom's birthday present, but since that is in Oct and now we're closer to Christmas, it is now part of her Christmas present ;-)

For the beret I followed instructions in The Complete Book of Progressive Knitting, very easy
fast. I used La Grand Mohair . Details are at Ravelry.

My inspiration for the neck warmer was the Purl scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. It's very easy, just K1P1 until you have the right length. I made it shorter and used some buttons to make it a nice neck warmer. The yarns I used were La gran Mohair, Bernat's Cool Crochet and some yarn that I got while in Paris (you can see it here). I love it! it's very easy, super warm and a great stash buster. I might have to make one for myself.

This is another rainbow hat. It was knitted originally for my soon-to-be-born nice, but It came out a Little too big, so I decided to give it to Anna. She's one and a half years old and I think it fits her nicely. I'll knit a smaller version for the baby, because you know, she's not chopped liver ;-)

The pattern is Lil' Devil Baby hat. The hat ended up having 2 sides, a mostly red side and a blue side. Anna really liked it and didn't want to take it off.

I'm getting closer to my 100th post, yey! What should I do? Maybe a contest?
