Christmas gifts in progress

Yeah, they’re coming along. I’ve not actually got photos of gift #3 but it’s an orange, yellow and white beret. I’m worried it’s going to be too small. It’s a good fit on me, but I have a small head, I’m going to be careful who I give it to. I’ve knitted it. I’ve just got millions of ends to sew in.

I really imagine wearing this into my next appointment with my psychologist. I know I should.

Otherwise gift #6 is much better. Yup, I’m doing another dead fish hat. I’ve been looking for an excuse, so I used this as one! I’m using more Phildar Charly, it’s cheap, and I got this hat out of 50g in total. I’m going to sew to Xs on for eyes in orange, that’s why I chose such a contrast. I’m hoping the person I’ve made it for will like it, I’m 90% sure he’ll laugh at least. I just need to sew the ends in, neaten up the tail and do the eyes.

You can see the notes for this hat here and for my first dead fish hat here.

I’ve also started the next gift, but I’ve made a mistake so I’m going to have to knit a flower to cover that error up. Oh dear. Next time I won’t increase during a class.
