Handmade Holiday

Wow, it’s day 21. I thought I’d have to pull this post out much earlier. Go, NaBloPoMo!

Anyway. The goal this year is not to buy any Christmas crap. Everyone is going to get a gift that was made by me. And if that’s not good enough, then screw ya. Half my family (dad, mum, nieces) will be delighted; the other half  will split into two camps, The “meh” camp, and the outraged camp. I care not.

So, here’s the plan, with Rav links for the knitting.

Mom-Transitions Stash-buster Shawl-done

Dad-classic neckwarmer recipe-done

Bro1-Botanic hat, short brim version-done

Niece the elder-Twilight mittens (Bella’s mitts)-done

Sister in Law-Luxe Cowl-done

Mr. Dame-Seamless hybrid (yeah, yeah, I know, we’re not married. But we’ve been together for 13 years, co-own a house, and are on our second dog. Sweater curse can suck it.)-mostly done

Nieces the younger-Puppet theatre (from Bend the Rules Sewing)-half done. Man, bias binding is a bitch.

Sister-Kitty hat

Bro2-Botanic hat, fold up brim version

By george, I might make it!
