As 2013 winds to a close I have a few holiday-related projects to share. First up, some knitting.
I made this little set of felted bowls for a dear friend who just moved into a new home. The smallest bowl follows the “tiny felted treasure bowls” pattern from The Rhythm of Family by Amanda Blake Soule. My notes for the larger two bowls are here.
I also made some Christmas mittens for E. The thumbs are a bit wonky but totally functional.
They were quickly put to use for some sandy beach play last weekend. This is the Family Mittens pattern and ever-fabulous madelintosh yarn. So soft and the colors are lovely.
Next up I’ve started a cowl… which might be my first-ever knitting projects for myself. I’m not sure if I’m a cowl-wearing sort of person but I’m going to give it a try.
I hope to share a bit more holiday sewing and crafting in the next few days before moving on to 2014. Thank you so much to everyone who has read (and left kind comments!) this past year as I’ve tried out sharing my projects in this place. I’m excited to continue creating and sharing and learning. Happy New Year to you all!
