I had a lot of fun making gifts this holiday season and thought I'd finally post some pictures. I mostly crocheted, but also made some body butter (with a new recipe I came up with) and painted Margot's little chair. Oh yeah, and Mike's "Why I Love You" jar that I mentioned in this post. I love making things so had a great time - and benefitted by improving my crochet skills - though still have a long way to go for other things I want to make. Anyway, here are some pictures.
This is Margot's chair as it looked when Jesse, her daddy, had it as a child - only Mike had already repaired two of the spindles here.
I made this hat and scarf for my friend Laurie in Mill Valley, California. It's my favorite yarn right now in my price range...Lion Brand's Homespun - love the colors:
And this set was made for Sarah, with her modeling it in this post. The scarf was made from this super easy pattern in more Homespun. I love how it spirals and want to make one for myself soon. Very quick to make.
I made this long circular scarf for Sarah. It can be wrapped like a shawl, scarf, over the head - and in any number of ways. I wish I had a better picture of it and what it can do.
And here's a sweater for Margot to wear with her little jeans:
Happy New Year everyone!
