current WIP
I finished all the major projects! I wish to shout it from the tree tops! I have knitted three vests, 8 hats, a scarf, two pairs of mittens, two cowls, 4 sheep, and a blue bear! I started a shawl that I hope to have finished up before we head out of town on Sunday and I have a project all lined up for while we are on our vacation! (hehe)
I have also made two quilts (using Ginny's quilt that she made for her wee one as an inspiration), and two skirts.
I am just so happy! This will truly be a real handmade holiday! The first we have ever really done. I love all the planning and the struggles and the thinking I would never get it all done, and here we are less then a week until Christmas and I am finished.
I hope everyone else's projects are wrapping up nicely. :)

Well done! Truly inspiring! I had attempted to knit a animal (my hope was quite a few) but being a brand new knitter I think I nay gave the wrong size needles? I got frustrated and really I have no idea how to understand the pattern LOL!!! It looked simple enough but alas :)

Everything is beautiful!!! Wishing you a really lovely holiday xoxo
