It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner? I can barely contain myself! Especially given that I'll be heading back to see my family and friends in the UK.
A couple of friends had a Christmassy swap recently, and I came away with the most amazing haul of goodies from Kristina. She is a sweetheart! Thank you Kristina :)
- Scout's swag in De Young colourway
- A fabulous project bag from Etsy shop 3am enchantments. Isn't it gorgeous.
- A Starbucks knitty mug (oh yeah, my collection is beginning to grow) and some yummy Aveda comforting tea.
I've been plugging away on more slippers... ever popular. So that's 3 more pairs that will be travelling back home with me.
And I tried my hand at making some Fimo stitch markers. I love the Zecca style goodies and that's what inspired me. These were fun to make and surprisingly simple.
Hmm let's see what else... I've been doing some other gift knitting which isn't quite finished yet. Speaking of which, if you need a quick gift idea, check out the front of the Sundance catalog -- isn't that a cute little hat/scarf set for a bottle of wine. (And don't get me started on the sweater -- I'm dying to try and mimic this using the anthropologie-inspired capelet as a starting point).
Ok, must focus and get back to the gift knitting!
