Quick Knitting Holiday Ideas

Julia told me it was less than 10 days to Christmas. Wow. Guess I better start thinking about it. I wait until the last minute and then drive myself nuts. One year I decided to begin ahead and I spent too much and lost the presents in the house because of forgetfulness. Now, I stick with my tried and true last minute. Way too much more fun!

That said, here are a few very quick projects to whip up if you have some extra time. 

From 2009, my Knit and Crochet Ornaments.

Little Leo Tolstoys, Santas, elves, or whatever for you and yours! Cute little wine bottle toppers or ornaments. Available through Ravelry free here for members. For all of you who are not Ravelry members, click on the Download Now link below!

And of course, still pushing my Kristin's Creative Christmas Stocking Pattern and the sweet little Heart to Heart Mittens. Those little heart mittens work up in a flash. Check out the Shop Page for ordering these patterns. 

Good weekend everyone!

You have a lovely weekend too and thank you for the patterns. I hope there's time for a bit of woolly making in the next week! I can't wait to work on my Julia wool blanket that's had to take a backseat while I make for the winter fairs. When do you get your pup? Our collies are enjoying the warm house, especially in the freezing evenings! They're too soft! Merry Christmas to all your family - 2 & 4-legged! x

Love your gifting style! I have to have presents in Monday's mail and I have 2 more to sew! I'll probably still be working on them Sunday night! Last minute, indeed!

Love the ornaments, they're just darling. However even my last minute is filled to the point of "you know it's gonna be too late!" So it goes. But I am putting it in my OCTOBER FILE! HUGS!

It's been a while since I've shared any new lamb recipes. A couple of weeks ago, our friends Yola and George visited and she shared ...
