Hand-knitted presents

This year, I made a few presents. Next year, I think I will try to do more. I just have to be disciplined about making stuff year-round, and not just a few weeks before the gift exchange.
For my coworkers, I made tiny sweater ornaments.
For the guys in the family (brothers-in-law, mother-in-law's partner), I made hats. One red and one gold skein made three hats, plus I had some leftovers. A couple of the guys are Iowa State Cyclones fans, so the colors were the appropriate choice. All three were designed by me. For the first one, pattern is available here. The other two are just some improvised stripes.
I think they liked the gifts. I sure hope so, because they will probably get something hand-knitted again next year.
