I'm using this pattern for the minion and it's been super clear so far, although I've been using the yarn doubled up to get the size required - my colleague asked me to make it for her friend and we quickly realised the pattern wasn't going to make it as big and squishy as we were going for, so rather than faffing with gauge I just employed my usual trick of going up a couple of hook sizes and thickening the yarn. I know, so professional.
The red hat is another commission, this time from a lady on Twitter who was looking for a Tom Weir style beanie. Since I'm a bit in love with making hats, I was happy to oblige. Only a pompom to add and it'll be handed over soon.
Another beanie hat from the never-ending stock of charcoal yarn was made for my boss, who's my recipient in Secret Santa this year. I also made him a tiny 'Christmas' jumper in a replica of his daily uniform of a navy sweater. Hopefully, he sees the funny side. I have a tiny coat hanger to add (made from paperclips) and then it'll be ready to be popped into the gift bag, along with some cider and his favourite chocolates.
My bookmark is a postcard I found in a shop in Brighton. One of my favourite movies, immortalised in cardboard? No way it wasn't coming home with me!
