What nicer way is there to spend the cold evenings? Watching our athletes give there best while knitting or crocheting knee rugs and keeping my lap warm at the same time. I'm about 3/4's of the way with this first half of my knitted circular rug.
Christmas gifts and using up my wool kit stash ... win win. You know when you see a project and it begs to come and live at your house? The least I can do is give them the oportunity to be loved.
Thank you all so much for your kind welcome into this talented group of Christmas bloggers!
I did finish another wool Christmas tree decoration! This time it's the actually Christmas tree one. Interestingly enough, I hadn't stitched on it for awhile, so I struggled with "relearning" the blanket stitch. Hmmm....
All year round, I crochet granny square dishcloths to give as gifts to my precious doctor's office staff and to members of various groups in which I participate. Here are some I finished last month.
It's also that time of year when I choose which toy to make for each of my four grandchildren. This month I'm hoping to flip through my patterns and pick a "stuffy" and perhaps even kit each one!
What are you up to?
After a few starts and pull-outs and start again, I'm finally on track with 2 woolen projects for Christmas gifts. I don't think I've shared my first finish ... the pattern is HoundsTooth or Cat's Tail or ElephantsTrunk. You can read more about it on my blog.
The next 2 are kits from BHG. I really wanted to knit a rug on circular needles, however I'm running out of room on the needles and am waiting for an order or a longer set to arrive ... they're 10mm.
The other I am following the knitted pattern with a 15mm crochet hook ... not much to show yet. As our school term wrapped up I've been working extra days and haven't had the urge to pick up a project.
One more kit to go once these are finished ... will it be a knit or crochet?
I stitched this The Birdhouse by Natalie Bird pattern back in 2019
and this one in 2020(also by Natalie Bird) & now they are both ready to hang this Christmas.
My name is Patricia and I blog over at faithtrustandbreastcancer.blogspot.com. For years I've been wanting to join your group and am so glad to finally make it!
After organizing my sewing room, I found quite a few of Rachel's of Greenfield's Christmas ornaments kits. I decided it was time to enjoy them, so I pulled out this cute little Christmas ornament kit called "Charcoal Mittens".
Here's what I finished last month:
