FO's After Christmas

So it's pretty darn early here....my body is still on my work schedule, meaning I'm up about 5:30 every morning....today I'm heading out to exchange a few things...need a different size...the store opens at 6...but I'll go a bit later...

Yesterday I spent the day lounging about and knitting...I made my Vermonter hat...I've been wanting to make this since I saw JennieKate's version on Ravelry.  So I picked up some Malabrigo Rasta and some Plymouth Yarn De Aire (on sale!) and made my version...
which I finished yesterday...

I also finished one of my Have I ever Steered You Wrong? socks...these are so squooshy..made with worsted weight...
and it fits extremely well!  I have the second started....

I also made myself a sparkly hat to wear on Monday...not the best picture
and then the gifts..lots of cowls....three crocheted, two knitted....

For the secretary:
it's Premiere yarn with the flowers attached...

For the two vice principals
With some Boucle I had in the stash...

For my besties....Malabrigo Rasta cowls...(I'm in love with this yarn, I've now used it 4 times in the past couple of months)
And the final..the ugly elf hat for the principal for Ugly Sweater Day...see we'd had a conversation and he said he had nothing to wear (in fact he wore a suit)..anyway I said I had an elf hat he could wear...(I do, it's in my classroom)...and then I decided to gift him the hat I had started...it's ugly and sheds like crazy....
Today, I'm hopefully finishing the second sock...and maybe the Shark in the Woods cowl, once I return from the madness of the mall......my goal is to finish up some of my WIPs before the end of the year...

Merry Christmas! Those are some lovely gifts. Maybe I should consider cowls for next year. Good idea.

What great projects. I love the socks in worsted, going to have to make myself some!

I like that Malabrigo Rasta. I don't think I've ever met anything Malbrigo that I didn't like.

You go so much done for Christmas! And you work full time! Amazing Grace! LOL!
I spent the day cleaning and organizing which included trying to gather my projects that I was working on before the Christmas gifting rush! I hope you had good luck at the mall.
