Long Time No See!

Geesh! A whole month since my last post. Well, like most of you, I've been working like a crazy woman trying to finish Christmas gifts. I made 8 lovely bookmarks, and forgot to photograph them. Here is that afghan for my son that took FOREVER to complete:



Yes, this is me holding it. I used about 13 ½ skeins of LB Homespun, in Metropolis and Edwardian, done on a 5 ft. Infinity Loom. There's quite a few boo boos, but Nick loves it anyway! You can see the loom behind me there, on the sofa.

One of Britti's gifts was a new coat, so she decided she needed a hat and scarf to match. She knitted the scarf, and I crocheted this hat:



Isn't she cute?!!! She likes to do self portraits.
The body of the hat is LB Homespun in Rocco, mixed with Red Heart (can't remember the color). The trim is The Cat's Meow, Milano. The pattern, Cat Hat, is by PLC Designs , and was oh so easy! Makes a great quickie gift.

Just when you think it's all over, I still have 2 incomplete gifts. UGH, the shame of it all. I'm almost finished with my SIL's afghan, and need to make one more golf club cover for my brother. But, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!!!!

Y'all be blessed!
