Reversible scarves in quilter’s flannels; embellished by hand with light green crystal beaded fringe–designed and sewn especially for MIL and DD#1
DS asked for a santa’s hat just like one I wore for the season…it sure wasn’t easy to find a fitting white for the trim and pompom! I love this so much I will knit it for the whole family in January or February…
I’m on a roll…another reversible scarf in quilter’s flannels; embellished by hand with light green crystal beaded fringe–designed and sewn especially for the kids’ friend. French toile has been my love since childhood.
Beaded Stitch Markers for a friend who is totally talented crafter and my inspiration. I do hope she likes these.
Fingerless Mitts for our friend Jenn M
I really love this “fitted” pattern…easy to remember and portable…Out of different yarns and colors I knitted, Paton’s Classic Merino RED was the best for this pair! Lucky recipent is the kids’ gymnastic coach, Katie.
Inspired by Kristin Nicholas’ latest book. I knitted and embroidered this pair for DD#2 but she’s just not interested in accessories! I would wear them but they are too cutsy/girly for an old lady like me…Oh well…maybe one to put in etsy store to be launched in February??
There are more…but this is all I have time for. Definitely much more thought and care was put into gift-making over stuff that’re store-bought. Next year (call it new year’s resolution if you may…), I plan to have a jump start in January to avoid the giftmaking rush.
Stay tuned for our meanderings of creativity discovery when we return from extended holiday travel in 2008!
