Self-explanatory, except for the reason why gift recipient #2 is not pictured from the forehead down. Suffice it to say he threatened many terrible things if I showed his face online, even though it means you do not get to see how perfectly the yarn matches his eyes. He may be my best friend in the world, but gosh, can he be a pain. Pictured at left is my former housemate Tom, wearing the knit-and-embroidered hat I made for him. Not yet pictured: the insanely cool plum alpaca and chartreuse llama-merino hats I made my parents (Dad and Mom, respectively).
