Christmas Gifts 2018

πŸŽ„ Merry Christmas from my family to yours 🎁

This year I used butcher paper and yarn to wrap all of my handmade gifts.

Here’s a photo collage of the things that I made and gifted for Christmas, Advent, & Saint Nicolas Day this year! More information can be found in my Ravelry pages.

There were also a few dishcloths and scrubbies that were gifted but not included in the photo collage.

Advent Blanket Squares 2018

Advent Blanket Squares 2018

I turned my Advent Calendar yarn into blanket squares. I think that I will add a white border around the squares for Xmas in a July. Hopefully then I will have an idea of how many squares I will need for a blanket. I’m thinking that it will take at least two advent seasons to complete it.

Here they are all together

I still have about 7 grams of yarn left over from the original 20 grams after crocheting the blanket squares above and knitting the mini socks.

I decided to start another scrap blanket with the leftovers.

Trust me I have no shortage of yarn scraps I started out with this bin full of scraps and mini skeins.

I am also working on this blanket with yarn scraps

I hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Xmas in July Socks

Xmas in July Socks

So, I started knitting this pair of socks back in July. I knit the first sock and casted on for the second sock before loosing interest and starting something new. I picked them up and finished this week.

I knit them with yarn that I dyed with cactus blossoms last summer.

I was really surprised to get this beautiful shade of gold out of red blossoms
