Snow people!

One more gift done. Aren't they a lovely couple? I was tempted to keep them but I guess I can share.

Don't tell John but this is what I made him for Christmas. The first picture is a pair of sheep's wool mixed with angora mittens that are hand dye, hand spun, and hand knit. The orange flecks are the sheeps wool. They turned our really nice.

These are a pair of hand knit socks made of wool, alpaca, and nylon.

And this little lovely is hand spun and hand knit hat made of left over bits of alpaca, angora, and camel. Can you believe that, camel? I just had to try spinning it. It is the least soft of the three fibers but worked well in this hat.

Now I just have to keep him from looking at the blog for a couple more weeks.
