Since I can't really show you the Christmas gifts I'm working on, here is the beginnings of Spiral legwarmers for myself. Using one skein Morjärv 2ply and one Drops' alpaca I think these will be snuggly warm. I am just a little bit worried I don't have enough of the Morjärv yarn, so I'm constantly weighting that skein to see how much I've used.
I also just finished Ella's headband from Interweave Crochet's Accessories issue. It took only one day, a very easy project. All it needs now is elastic and I can send it off to one lucky recipient. I used a size 3mm hook with Drops Muskat in a really pale pink shade.
