Happy New Year!

May 2013 be filled with everything you love & treasure. :)  For me, that's lots of knitting & quality time with family & friends (especially my lovely Husband).  :)

Christmas Mittens

I have dubbed this year's Christmas as "Mitten Christmas" because the majority of the knitted gifts this year have been mittens.

Shayne's mittens

Shane (my youngest model)'s mittens

Nolettes mittens (x2) - pictures to come

& out-grown mittens (now hung with love on recipient's family tree).

I'm nearly mitten-ed out!  I guess it's time I started working on next year's "theme."

Did anyone else notice a "theme" in their gift-giving this year?

Baby Fever?

Not quite.  More like baby clothes and crafting fever.

Patterns at the top of my queue (aka, after all my Christmas-crafting is complete): basic baby socksbaby sweater (or this one) & maybe these for something fun to try.

Plus a Treasury to collect "Cute Boy" ideas:

So if you know anyone pregnant or who has a new addition in their family, send them my way. :)

P.S. dishcloths make great washcloths & hand towels (coming soon) as burp cloths!

Christmas Crafting

Here are a few knitted gifts I can share:
Mittens - I made an extra pair for this little model to keep.

This was a host gift to a very close friend of my husband's; made the weekend we stayed.

One of many custom orders for co-worker gifts.  :)

one of six pairs in progress (will be a post-Christmas gift).
The latest gift: little mittens for my cousin's daughter.  Made on Christmas Eve.
More to come as we celebrate with other family members.  :)

Merry Christmas!

I promise I'll be back soon with pictures of all those knitted gifts I've been hinting at.  I hope everyone had a very fun & heart-warming holiday with new memories to reflect on.  :)
