Holiday Gift Round Up

3 Jan

Happy new year!

Now that the holidays are over and all gifts have been packaged, delivered, and opened, I think I am free from spoiling anyone’s surprises with this holiday round up post.

I apologize in advance for some of the lackluster photos that follow.  I was knitting and sewing frantically to get everything finished in time.  There are several items that didn’t even get the courtesy of having a poorly-taken-photo shot before I packaged the gift up.  Here is a rundown of a few items I made for the holidays.

I made a long Honey Crowl for my super good friend Kelly.

I love this crowl and this yarn.  My friend Kim made me one for my birthday, and I have been wearing it all winter long.  For this one, I used two skeins of Madeline Tosh DK in calligraphy.  I suppose one could wear it like this well:

For my nephew B, I made him an Oliver and S Nature Walk Pullover as part of his present.

An Ice Cream dress for my niece.

For my new nephew J., I knit a raglan pullover using alpaca yarn.

I made a bunch of napkins and tea towels, but I only seemed to manage to snap a photo of this set.

Crayon roles as part of H. & M.’s gifts.

Oven mitts for my cousin, a holiday gift swap, and for our friends who kindly took care of our dogs while we were away (again, not all of the ones I made were photographed).

A voile scarf for my mom as part of her present. I used Purl Soho’s Luxury Liberty Scarf tutorial and fabric by Anna Maria Horner.

Not having sewn for about two weeks has made me a bit antsy.  I’m looking forward to some quiet nights at home after we finish our last bit of holiday travel and family visits this weekend.

    Happy Holidays Jeanne!

    LOVE the idea of making people tea towels and napkins out of all the amazing fabrics out there. Of course i have to learn to properly sew first! 🙂

    I love your work. Can I ask you something? How do you do all this and two kids? I have so much trouble getting my sewing projects done because of my 3 year old daughter. I would love to make all this stuff too, but seems like I don’t have time or my daughter hates to see me sewing.

    I visit your website often to get some ideas and inspiration. I love it and I’m so glad you do it for you and your kids and for friends and family.
