More Christmas crafting...

Tis the season to act like a little elf and crank out those Christmas gifts! Yesterday I made some very simple freshwater pearl earrings for a sister-in-law:

And the countdown is on for the gifts yet to be crafted:

I am going to make a Koolhaas hat for another relative. Although I have a feeling that I'll have to do my best to keep it from my husband as he loves camouflage colours.

And a request has been placed for another hat, for my mother-in-law, to go with the Shetland Shawl I'd made not so long ago. I was thinking that the foliage hat from Knitty might work. Or maybe even trying to incorporate the lace pattern from the shawl into a hat.

What do you think? Any other suggestions?

A bunch of suggestions:

Chevron

Lace

Damama my fav for matching

headhuggers

Lace Cap This last one is nice because you could put any lace pattern on it.

Oops bad html. I think you can figure out to look at the Elann pattern:

And it is the headhuggers pattern that can be modified with another lace pattern, not the last one.

Very pretty earrings! I LOVE your yarn and I think it would be so pretty in the foliage hat pattern! Can't wait to see it on the needles! I am dying to cast mine on too! :)

Such pretty earrings. I love the yarn for the koolhause, but I don't have pattern ideas. I usually don't knit hats, but foliage is super easy and comfortable.

Very lovely earrings! SIL is blessed!

I would go with a beret - simple and black!
