The Bangles Greatest Hits

Christmas is over. The tree is down. Presents are all unwrapped. So before the excitement of New Year's Eve sets in, I thought I'd go through a rundown of all the Christmas crafts I couldn't blog about earlier for obvious reasons.

First up are the bangles. I made two each for my sister and two friends. I got the idea from Mimsie's Ravelry page and blog. And I had previously made two for myself.

Sippi's bangles are made out of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK (light) and Aran (dark)—her favorite color is periwinkle. The lighter one is a bobble stitch from Vogue Knitting, and the darker one is a lace hearts stitch from VK:

Richele also has a lace heart stitch bangle. Her's is made from Paton's Classic Wool Merino. The blue bangle is a thatched cable stitch from—you guessed it—Vogue Knitting. The yarn is Lion Brand Wool-Ease:

Kate's bangles are also from Vogue Knitting stitch patterns. The purple is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK and a double seed stitch. The tan is a lace pattern and Lion Brand Wool-Ease:

Mmmm, don't they look tasty!

I'll blog more on the rest of the crafty Christmas presents later.

Ok... I know I'm an over commenter and all... but the title on this post is so copy editor-tastic I just have to give you some props.
