Knitted Christmas gifts

Here are some members of my extended family, wearing their knitted gifts.
From left to right, my niece wearing her fingerless mitts in that lovely hand spun silk/merino indigo dyed yarn from the Hornby Island spinner, my nephew-in-law wearing his slippers knit from Denman Island reared wool, (my brother has books instead of knitting), my sister-in-law is wearing the red sweater which fits perfectly and looks lovely on her, and lastly my niece wearing her socks on her hands. Aren't they a super group - I love them all so much!!
