Christmas Gifts Galore!

Every year. Every year I knit tons of gifts! And every year I do a dump post. Here's this year's post. Minus a bunch of gifts I forgot to take pictures of! DOH!

Little Mice for my nephews, Brandon and Carter!

My mother-in-law swears that Brandon will just adore it! I hope so!

A pinafore for my only niece Ashley! I love the bright colors and the sparkly yarn. I'm not such a fan of the splotch of black on the front, but alas. Such is life.

Super cute hat, also for Ashley.

This all started out as a library bag for my oldest nephew, Bryant. Then turned into gift bags for the whole sibling set.

Mobeius for my mom
Fingerless mittens for my mom

Mistaken Rib scarf for my sister, Ang.

All presents have been mailed out to their recipients, and with only one week until Christmas, I really hope that they like them!

My Baby Owen's Stash

I've been a busy, busy knitter the past few months. I have a baby due in about 6 weeks, but I'm really hoping he decides to come a little bit early. Not a TON early, just a little.

Anyway, I have had some time to knit. I have kind of closed down knitting for other people, for a while, at least. And focusing on knitting for my baby, and my family, hey Iowa winter is COMING! And Christmas!

Here are some of the things I've knit up for my baby, Owen!

This yarn was knit by my super talented friend, Jennifer of Debutante Yarns

Yummy Dashing Dach's Caribbean Goldfish! One of my favorite colorways
Owen's Caribbean Goldfish Longies

Unblocked Sheepy Longies...I think I'm going to add a sun to the bum.

They also need a drawstring...but details.

I knit this pumpkin hat on the way to Mall of America over Labor Day weekend. It's Dashing Dach's pumpkin.

And those are all that I have a picture of! I have some hats I've knit, and I need to knit a matching sheepy hat. Thinking about a Hudson. I am test knitting a realllllly cute thing! And I have some gorgeous caribbean seas by Debutante Yarns to do also...sooo I still have a lot to do.

Here is another crafty endeavor I've taken. I went to Joanns to get a wreath for our door. But all of them were way too decorated. So this is what I got instead. A grapewood (I think) wreath for $3. And then 4 $1 picks. I like it SO much more than the wreaths that Joanns had, and it was less than 1/2 the price!

It's been a while....

But here is something I whipped up this morning for a birthday party we're going to today. The birthday boy is (shockingly) 2! And loves Thomas!

Brogan's Birthday Shirt!  2!

My 2 year old saw the "chugga" shirt I was making for the birthday boy, and said, "Mama you make me chugga too?" Awww
