Here's what I made for gifts over the holidays. The scarf is a mix of crochet and knit, the black hat is crochet, and the orange hat and tank top are both knit. I got to test out some new techniques on these ones, knitting in the round will come in handy later when I want to make some sweaters and other pieces of clothing.

I made these wool mittens to help keep warm in winter. Winter was always my least favourite season because I got so cold, especially my hands, and gloves never seemed to work very well. So I decided to switch to mittens; since your fingers are all kept together they can share heat and it's a lot warmer. Here's the pattern I used.

More folding furniture! I made this shelf for my room after I moved out and realized I needed extra space. It folds up for portability, just like the coffee table. I followed this youtube video for the design, although mine is only 5 feet tall, otherwise I wouldn't be able to keep anything on the top.

This is a folding coffee table I made when I decided to move out of my parent's house. The legs fold into the center on two piano hinges. Keeping in mind that the housing market is unstable, I wanted to make something portable, that I could easily fold up and bring with me whenever I had to move. It's inspired by japanese chabudai tables, and is tall enough to use while sitting on the floor for crafting, reading, eating, and everything else you could need a table for. I also want to make a folding kotatsu, so I can put it away in the closet during the summer.
