Really, I am. All I need now are little slippers with the toes curled up. I have been a busy Christmas knitter and it's been fun. I started knitting tiny sweaters and stockings for Christmas ornaments and I think I'm addicted. After all my bigger projects, it's really great to knit something that I can finish in an hour. They're really fun to decorate and personalize, too. The books Weekend Knitting and Last-Minute Knitted Gifts both have mini sweater patterns but since I don't have either of those books, I just made up my own. If anyone is interested in knowing how I made them, let me know. Here are what I've made so far.
I'm going to use them as decorations on my Christmas packages and I think my family will be impressed. This way, everyone will get something knitted. It is going to be a knitted Christmas for my family. Here are my mother-in-law's socks all wrapped up and pretty.
I also made a label for my mom's gyrid top. (This is the last picture you'll see of this top. Well . . . unless I get a picture of my mom wearing it) I used iron-on transfer paper and ironed it onto a ribbon. It turned out really professional looking, if I do say so myself. I even tried it on and I couldn't feel it at all. No scratchy label for my mama.
