Festive gift and knits

This week I started my festive red knit and when I saw the same yarn on a 3 for 2 offer at local HobbyCraft I bought some in black for another version - a cardi for under a tenner can't be bad?

Its knitting up quite quickly on my 6.5mm needles and I will share a photo when I've knit a bit more but its the same as above except in red.  The black is nice its sort of a smoke-black rather than a jet-black and it has silver sparkles through it - I plan to sparkle next summer - ha-ha!  as if there is a chance of sparkling at Christmas at my rate of knitting?

The gift set I knitted for no.1.son's flat mate at Uni for his Christmas swap is done and ready to be posted!

I am pleased with it and I hope she will be too - the scarf is nice and twirly!  the mitts are lovely and warm knitted on sized smaller needles and the teddy is just fun!  all are ravelled on my project pages.
