Knitting like a maniac

I got into a panic about Christmas presents and the thought of fighting with the crowd and spend my money on something worthwhile was wrecking my brain. Then I saw Neki's post on 'lovely things'.
I got into this tunnel vision state, attacked my stash and (machine) knitted like a maniac. I managed to use all stash yarns for the following handmade items so I feel very virtuous indeed.

Knit Felt shawl: Avril Silk stainless and Colourmart cashmere
Kusha Kusha scarf: Avril Silk stainless and Colourmart cashmere
Scarf with random colour blocks and eyelet details: Colourmart cashmere
Scarf with eyelet details: DEA yarns cashmere
Not quite circular shawl with eyelet details: DEA yarns cashmere
All in all, I am very happy with the results and I hope that the recipients will be too. Fortunately, I don't think that they read my blog so it will stay a surprise!
