I posted a while ago that I was on a year long gift challenge to make, upcyle or regift all the presents I gave. Here are some of the things I have done so far
I came across this scarf pattern years ago and like that it is unusual. It was Yme’s moms birthday and I wanted to make her something very special and had some Lumpy Bumpy yarn left from when I imported it. I really love the way it came out and when she wears it to work with her black top and jacket it look amazing. I think the colours suit her and bring out the special spark and vitality for life that she has. This picture does not do it justice on her. I must try get one of her rocking it in her work outfit
My friend Catherine takes so many amazing pictures of my family I wanted to thank her, she mentioned that Paul’s favourite Aran Cable hat had a hole in it, so I made him a new one. I don’t have a picture of it on. I know in the photo it looks very long but Caz assures me it fits. I will have to ask her a pic of it on Paul if she can get him to agree
I made another scarf for Acidicice’s birthday. I need to get one of it on her. I just have a picture I took after I made it
I am busy work on a felted pencil bag for Ghilraen’s daughter and some knitted food for her other daughter. I have one glove of a set for Sharon done. She too has taken such amazing pictures for me that when she asked for fingerless gloves I just had to make them as a gift even though she wanted to pay me. They have been a challenge, but I actually love how this one has turned out. Too bad by the time I am finished the other one it will be too warm for them! Oh well there is always next year
I have an decided what I am making for Mom’s 60th. I have the yarn from Carle at Nurturing Fibres but because Mom might look here between now and her birthday I can’t mention what it actually is that I am making. Lets say it will be a first and I am excited.
I have quite a few hats and things I have made for orders but that is another blog post.
