Enjoying a few moments with tea and some Christmas gift knitting as the sun finally peeks out after several cold, gray days.
Are you working on any handmade gifts for giving?
That looks lovely. No, I don't knit, or sew, but I am creative. The extent of my homemade gifts are cute vintage jars filled with homemade cocoa, tied up with wooden Christmas spoons & gift tags (those from Etsy), and they are for my sisters at our family Christmas on the 13th. I always make at least one small gift to give them, even though we technically don't exchange gifts anymore. Linda
Linda, That's a great idea...technically my siblings and I don't officially exchange either, but I usually like to have some small gift for them too.Holiday wishes,Deb
Yes! I am working on a cowl and boot cuffs for gifts. Love the colors in your morning knit!
I love the colours and pattern on your knitting Deb, is it a hat?
It is a hat, the pattern for which is in French. My high school French helped me with the translation, except for the decreases--I haven't figured that part out yet!Deb
Wow Deb I'm impressed. Good luck with the decreasing|
Such a cosy spot Deb! Yes I'm making some of these linen bags from Quince and I'm using their yarn, it's scrumptious. I have never bought yarn overseas until I came across Quince. http://quinceandco.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_23&products_id=72
What a lovely project! And yes.. I am! Dishcloths all over ;o)
I have made two small tie quilts for grandchildren, a crochet Afghan for grandaughter and working on Afghan for step daughter and hubby, I tried knitting, I just couldnot get it, love love the look....I have made a couple of texting gloves and started boot cuffs.....I love your knitting!!!BlessingsRhonda
I am working on some cowls for a few of the children in our life. I am also working on one for a good friend. Thank heavens they are a fairly quick knit as I have a few more to go.Love the colours in your knitting.God bless.
My mother was complaining about the state of her potholders. Her friend had done them, but they were too thin so she doubled them. Upon inspection, they are actually dishcloths, the diagonal Grandmother's one. I'm doing eight and will go ahead and crochet them together for her. My husband has a 3 year old granddaughter who is all sparkle and bows. I purchased several different colors of netting, glitter and not, and made a tutu. (And that's asking a lot from this mud and camo girl...lol)
...enjoying a piece of (your) sun this morning - for inspiration, for quietness, for a cup of tea, and for making gifts.....it is summer south of the equator, and i'm contemplating baskets of kitchen gifts, garden gifts... (it might be that the contemplation needs some action...)
I have been making many of my Christmas gifts this year. I have crocheted three hats and I am crocheting 6 snowmen decorations for Christmas gifts. I myself would rather have a handmade gift then a store bought. I will be placing a small gift card with each gift : )I hope you are enjoying your day today!
I think handmade gifts are the best. The things I have made for my girls have been their favorite gifts. They can't tell you most of what we bought them over the years, but they love their quilts. I am working on some quilted throws for them this year, and Earl made Lauren a key holder, message center with a chalkboard to go by her back door. Now that they have their own homes it's fun helping them decorate with handmade goodies from mom and dad.
Hats, hats, and more hats!
Knitted scarves with a button to hold the criss-cross in the front...
