My Yulemas knitting continues apace.

So far I've managed gifts for:
  • Miss Snarfblatt
  • Marmalade Lady-Pants
  • Miss Awkward Potatoes
  • Signor Mountebank
And I'm half-way through a thing for Comrade Twinkle-toes.   I'm considering another gift for that one as well.

Signor Mountebank's Goodly Robot Hat
Despite near universal claims that he'd much rather have socks, I've made this Robot Hat for Signor Mountebank.  (Okay, there is no way he's reading this...but the nick-name thing is too much fun.)

The thing is, he's got two feet, but only one head, so there's that.  Also, the aforementioned feet have a tendency to grow about half an inch every night, so there's no way they'd fit him come December.

Of course, that said, I'm considering designing some wee little robot mitts to match.

Miss Awkward Potatoes' Tam
Miss Awkward Potatoes will be receiving this lovely and poly-chromatic tam.  (The other side is also pretty, but I didn't manage to take a good picture of it).

It's made with Knitpicks' Chroma Worsted and Swish DK.   I've never done colorwork with a yarn that changes colors like the Chroma before (although I've often admired pictures).  It was fun, and makes me look clever — so I call that a win.

The pattern is Mom's Tam.   I'm planning mitts and a scarf to go with.   We'll see how much gets done between now and then.  I figure I'll spread out the love some, as I'm hoping to manage knit gifts for many of my kith and kin this year.
