holiday crafting :D

Despite hav­ing to shop online for many of our presents this year because of lack of time, I man­aged to fin­ish a few hand­made gifts :D 

I’m quite proud of these mit­tens from pat­tern by Lit­tle Things Blogged.



Granny sweaters by Bev’s Coun­try Cot­tage for my niece and nephew, they seemed to like them :D

Owl mitts for a dear friend. They were knit­ted. It was an awe­some pat­tern to work with because it was worked flat then seamed (I have trou­ble knit­ting in the round). Each took me an evening to make, and used an incred­i­bly small amount of yarn (I made both with 1 skein of Pat­ton Clas­sic Wool with a lot of yarn left over).

Every year Mike and I col­lab­o­rate to make Christ­mas cards for every­one. This year we made sim­ple snowflake cards by “dye­ing” cof­fee fil­ters with mark­ers and using the dyed papers to make snowflakes with a snowflake/star punch.

The cof­fee fil­ters were too soft to use the snowflake punch with, so we had to sand­wich the cof­fee fil­ter with fly­ers to make it eas­i­er to punch, and we’re left with these real­ly nice fly­er snowflakes, which I’m reluc­tant to throw out…

Wish­ing you much joy for the new year!

  1. Okay, all of the above are awe­some! But those fox mitts — too too cute! And I can total­ly see those leftover/extra snowflakes being strung on string as some sort of garland. :)

  2. Love the Granny Cardi­gans and of course, those fox mittens!

    Have a hap­py and healthy 2014.
