Holiday Knitting

It almost always sneaks up on me. I think of things all year long but I don't usually start the actual knitting until October or November. And then.....Egads! I have so much to do. So, I'm working on stuff but I can't post actual items until after Christmas. So, see you after Christmas.

Cabled Headband

This started out as a hat gift, but I soon realised that it was going to be too big for the recipient. So, I decided it would be for me, then when I finished it not only was it too small for me but it probably would have only fit a three month old and the colors were all wrong for her. So, I started ripping. I ripped back to the last cable section and then just bound off. So, now it's a nice cabled headband for me. Here's where I found the pattern.

A new addiction?

I've found a new love! This is towel #1, I've now moved on to towel #3. I'm embroidering flour sack towels for someone. She doesn't know about this blog so I can post shamelessly. I'm loving this craft. What I love about all needlework crafts is that it really makes me feel connected to my ancestors. I'm doing something they did hundreds of years ago. I was so intimidated at the thought of even trying this but with help from here and here I found it to be so easy. I would say the only bad thing about it is it's not as easy to transport as my knitting is.

FO's 2

Here is some stuff I made for my color swap buddy, stephanie. Unfortunately I have been crazy busy so getting pics of everything wasn't a priority. I made the cards in the top right corner, the bookmarks right below them and the dishrags/potholders in the middle. I did happen to take a close up of the bookmarks.

I have a few finished projects I can share now that they have been gifted.

First up is a birthday gift for my BF frugalmom. Its a backpack I knit. I used a pattern for the infamous booga bag and then just adapted it into a backpack. I felted it. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pics before the felting. I put stiff interfacing in the bottom to give it some form. I also lined it and put a pocket on the inside.
