Gifted socks

My Birthday Wishes friend, Leah, had a birthday last weekend.Cliff Walk socks finished

We don’t exchange gifts that often but the Cliff Walk socks were perfect for her.  The colors were perfect and the size was perfect so these socks were the perfect gift for her!Stitch count and care instructions

When I didn’t have a color of yarn I wanted to use already in my stash, I hand-dyed the yarn myself.Thank you card

With temperatures in the 90s, she will have to wait a few months to wear them!

Peppermint candy

My final completed knitting project this year was a set of four coasters using this pattern.

I had given all my cotton yarn (except the white and red) to my granddaughter this fall. thinking I was all coastered out.  But needing a quick Christmas hostess gift, I decided to bring out the pattern again.

These red and white coasters remind me of peppermint candies!

I also managed to knit another scrubby with red and orange Scrubby Sparkle.  Sorry, no pictures.

A great gift idea that only took about 4-5 hours to complete!

More bags

These little bags make a great gift idea that only takes about an hour or two to complete.  Of course, when making 28, it takes a bit longer.

The small “what-not” bags I sewed together for our church’s fundraiser are finished.  Some are made with vintage fabrics from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s and some are from this century.Small notions bagsEach one is different in some way.  Some have different zipper colors or different lining fabrics, or both.

Now to pack them up and get them to the church for the Christmas Tea this Saturday.
