December 24, Christmas Eve, is traditionally the busiest day for finishing projects on Ravelry, and this year was no exception: 3,915 projects were marked as finished on that day! Many of these were made as gifts (finished in the nick of time!) for lucky family and friends, and still others were made as treats for the Ravelers themselves. Here are just a few of the projects finished on December 24 that caught my eye:

AmyFal’s Christmas Strokker (she made more than one as gifts this year – click through for an adorable family picture!), Mawther’s Riddari for Christmas, and Mafitzge’s Pumpkin Cowl for Grandma are all well-loved by their recipients – as they should be!

Susara’s Loro Vest, SuzyParkerYarn’s Eliza’s Christmas Mermaid, and Chrissaah’s Christmas Jumper all made me smile.

It was even more difficult than usual to choose projects for this Eye Candy, because there were so many wonderful photos of happy knit-and-crochet-worthy gift recipients! If you’d like to browse through all of them you can check them out in our Advanced Search.

This will be our last blog post of 2014, so all of us here at Ravelry wanted to take a moment to say thank you to you all for being a part of our community this year!
