Archive for the ‘Christmas Knitting’ Category

So far this morning has consisted of Storage Wars, American Pickers, Tea and Knitting, not entirely a bad morning as far as I’m concerned.  Making the most of my penultimate lazy day, officially my Garden Leave finishes tomorrow and I can legally start my new job on Wednesday *happy dance*  An entire month of nothingness is driving me crazy!

Worked on some simple mittens with crochet flowers sewn on to them yesterday, need to remember to take pictures of them and post them later on.  At the moment, I’m working on a “diamond brocade” scarf as another Xmas Present, the list is doing well, Max’s snowflake and contrast set is done (just needs to be blocked etc), Kenzie’s mittens and ribbon detail hat are done.

Last week I splurged on new buttons for my stash *yipee* and some vintage looking luggage tags/gift tags for attaching to all the Xmas gifts – can’t wait!

Discovered a fantastic blog randomly last night One Sheepish Girl, it’s a lovely blog and so inspiring!  Definitely worth a read.

On an excited note, my Dr Sheldon Cooper bobble head has been dispatched!  Wooooohoooo means I can take him for my new desk this week *happy dance*

So far I’m 1/3 through the second snowflake hat……and then I think it will be onto the next Christmas presents…..so far my list is:

  1. Snowflake hat for baby Max
  2. Bedsocks for Mam & Mother in Law
  3. Hat & Scarf set for Step Dad
  4. Beanie for Brother in Law
  5. Scarf and Beret for Sister in Law

Can’t think of anyone else that would apprecaite or make use of a knitted gift. 
Reminds me, need to get the sewing machine out and get all the “handmade” labels sewn up and ready to attach to all the finished creations

Pictures of all finished creations to follow!

Anyone got ideas of what else would make a good knitted gift?

Woohoo I’ve completed my first Christmas knit!!
It’s a lovely wee snowflake bonnet that I knitted from a pattern in Knit Now magazine 🙂 and I’m so pleased with it!  Just need to make another one in a slightly bigger size now………..

On a side note! My lovely husband bought me a slanket today so I can be wrapped up and warm and still knit – yay!!

So cheery this morning when I found issue 13 of Knit Now on the door mat!  The free supplement with patterns for Christmas gifts is superb, I can’t wait to get knitting, though I need to go and buy more wool to do some of them.

Hamish and I took a lovely walk on the beach this afternoon, though it did get a bit windy for us, poor dog was being blown about!  Was funny to watch though.

Need to start knitting something now I think, might start on my Christmas gift list – wonder who’d like a scarf?! Tee hee……. Time to hit Ravelry methinks, see what pretty patterns there are on there that I can knit with the wool I have?!
