I said I would post pictures of the projects that kept me busy before Christmas, and here they are, finally.
First, to give a little perspective on my work . . .
These were on Etsy and she had 155 orders logged, so apparently there is a market.
If you didn't get a pair, there is always next year.
This sweater was on the rack at a favorite charity shop. The right sleeve reached from my sister's shoulder to her ankles!
I've had a similar problem making socks, so I feel for this knitter. You know. Sometimes things just get away from you!
The real curiosity is, can the shop really think someone will buy this?
Well, now I think you are ready to see my modest creations, so here you go.
I made eight pairs of boot cuffs and leg warmers for friends and family in different colors and patterns. This is the only pair I remembered to take a photo of. They are wool, warm and comfy and fun to make. I'm always looking for ways to use up small amounts of yarn I have left over, and these used up lots of those.
My daughter wanted this so I had to learn to knit a cable. I'm convinced with YouTube, I can now do anything!
It has fancy black buttons to wear it as a cowl that came from one of my grandma's dresses. Sarah loves it.
A hat for Mason used up more leftovers from other projects.
A green car, an orange car, and a blue and yellow truck. The first time it was too big so I made it twice.
I think I will start earlier next Christmas.
