Knitting right along...

Well, I have finally finished all the Christmas presents!  I showed you mom's mitts, and now here's Red-Headed sister's Hufflepuff scarf.  Finished.  Let me say that again.  Fin-ished!  Knitted, blocked, and fringed.  (It took four months to complete.  It's a good thing she loves it!  I will never make one of these ever again.)

And I finished my third star-crossed slouchy beret.  This one is for me.  I had help with this one as well--both from my niecelette and her second cousin, three-year-old Lucy.  While knitting it, I didn't have a cable needle with me, so I ended up using the earpiece…
