Christmas Knitting *Installment #4

I didn't really knit this stuff but I wanted to give my knitting / blogging friends something special for Christmas so I dyed them some yarn. I asked them what their favorite color / color combonations were way back in November so they had enough time to forget about it. I used dye your own sock yarn from Knit Picks and dyed the yarn with Kool-Aid, remember when I was doing this??
On the top of the picture there's Mary's Grape Fusion: she also received some coupons for knitting help since she wants to learn how to knit socks.
In the middle there's Lara's Midnight Knitter: she received a little tote bag and some fun tools since all her stuff is packed away for a bit while she finishes building her house!
On the bottom we have Nikki's Super Holly: Nikki got a few tools for her tote bag (I gave it to her last Christmas) and a sock pattern that she can't wait to start!













Here's a peek inside Lara's new knitting bag. I used Mariko's tote bags 101 tutorial to make it!










And here's a closeup of one of the skeins.

Wow! What a great gift idea! So what if you didn't knit with it? How much better and personal a gift could someone get???
