Happy Holidays!!!

Hello Dear Friends!  6 more days til Christmas, it's truly upon us isn't it?  Wendy Jo has received the ornament I made her.  I first came across this pattern on someone else's blog and had to hunt it down.  I think it's so darn cute~~I had a good chuckle at the part where mr. whitey snowman has both carrots stuck in his head, lol.  No, it doesn't take much to amuse me, why do you ask???


A chenille bow and hanger and some of my mini-rusty bells.



Snowmen Photobooth
Bent Creek
32ct linen (included)
fibers: WDW, GAST, DMC


Some flannel for the back.


A last minute Picholine gift for a friend of Oldest's.  (It only takes a couple hours to knit one of these up!)

 


And another little sweater for an ornament exchange!  I think that makes 5 of these little sweaters this year.




Well, my dear friends.  That kind of wraps up things around here.  We're expecting a few flakes today, which I'm actually looking forward to!  There is grocery shopping to be done today.  And some cookie baking later this week.  And much wrapping to be done in the wee hours before Christmas morn.

Thank you for visiting me here.  I'm wishing each of you a Wonderful and Joyous Christmas, and a Peaceful and Prosperous New Year!  May your Holidays be Happy and your Hearts be Full!

Berit said...

The finishing on those snowmen really makes the chart!

Also, I love the gift for oldest's friend. :) I recently tried knitting my first scarf, and now have to figure out the best way to get it off the needles so I can make another! Learning rib stitch was totally do-able after the good tutorials you'd given previously for basic dish cloths.

Thank you, Staci, and Merry Christmas!
