Ahem, yes. Want proof? Check out this 'I need sleep' shot.
Yesterday I was trying to get this little beauty (that would be the cowl) all finished and wrapped for gifting today. Which also explains the dreadful late-night lighting in the shots.
The cowl is a fabulous pattern from Phydeaux designs - the Phydeaux Twist Cowl. It is worked on size 19 needles with a super bulky yarn. Perfect for those last minute gifts :). The yarn is Malabrigo Rasta in colourway Piedras. Good grief this yarn is wonderfully soft and smooshy. Oh, and this work in progress picture is a much better representation of the actual colourway.
The recipient is a very dear lady from daycare that has known, and cared for, Naomi since she was 3 months old. It was a Happy Birthday, Congratulations, Merry Christmas, Fond Farewell and Thank you gift. This sweet lady is moving out of state and will be dearly missed by our whole family, but mostly Naomi who would run to class each day and give this lady a big cuddle. (The congratulations piece - she got married, on her birthday, which happened to be 12/12/12. Very cool!)
The other little gifties that I put together since my last blog update were a handful of Christmas gifts for some local friends. I found these chocolate fondue pots, and packaged them with mini marshmallows and some decorated forks from Tulle and Twig. I was really pleased with how this all came together.
Have you been Christmas crafting too? I'd love to hear what you are working on.
Ok, I've got to run... more gifts to complete and the clock is ticking!
Have a wonderful weekend,
Hugs, Sam xxx
