Housewarming gifts

Knitting helped me keep my sanity while I was out of the country to renew travel documents and visit family. I wasn't able to even start the doily I really wanted to make but I finished three lovely projects.
A blanket....."Caravan" by Anne Hanson in beautiful Malabrigo Rios "Teal Feather"

I also made two pillowcases and even bought the pillows at Jo-Ann to make sure that everything matches. Let's just say they took up a lot of space in my suitcase but it was so worth it! :)

A reversible pillowcase in Tunisian crochet using Malabrigo Rios "Solis" and "Indiecita".

My favorite project....I really had a hard time giving it away...this crocheted pillowcase using mini-skeins from Yarn Love Juliet.
I also used Malabrigo Rios Sunset for the cover and the enclosures.
