I knit my brother a Roku Hat in this shocking neon orange for Christmas. He’s into skeet shooting these days and an avid outdoors man. He needed an approrpiately knit hat. And while I finished it so closely to when I gifted it, I failed to grab a snap of it. However, here’s to hoping he wears it.
Entirely stash busting, I used half this skein of Manos Del Uruguay Maxima in the Zinnia colorway. I’m glad I found a use for this yarn, originally bought as an accent color for a cowl I decided against knitting. Thus is the way it goes.
Here’s to even more stash busting projects in 2017.
Nothing screams holidays like extra dirty martinis in vintage mid century glasses and fair isle snowflake motifs in red and white.
This hat ended up being an amazing stocking cap gifted before I could get finished snaps. It only took two evenings to knit, so I’m definitely starting another one this evening.
Homemade, with Pendleton wool remnants. I started working on this project and my mum finished it for me. Basically, she did almost everything–I cut out the patterns.
Mostly because Pendleton wool remnants are quite hard yet for me to sew, what with my limited skills.
I am so pleased with the way they came out; there’s nothing better than homemade Christmas.
Sean and I have a gorgeous gas fireplace in our living room of the new home. So it seemed fitting that I finally make some Christmas stockings. It is November, already, after all, and I had some amazing Pendleton fabric remnants laying around that I thought would be perfect for the project.
The cuff will have a fold over of tan micro suede style fabric in which I’ll embroider our names.
Hopefully I can finish these soon. I’ve got them both cut out, and one partially sewed. All in time, right?
Last year, I tried ombre eggs. This year, my theme was emoji. I just love using them. They are hilarious and random and often get the point across quickly. And so, they were the inspiration for my egg dyeing this year. My favorite face is this one; both in egg form, and in emoji form.
How did you dye eggs this year?
