I’ve received some lovely presents:
And had the pleasure of seeing my makes go down a storm:
This is an iPad cover I made using a tutorial I found via the Crafty Christmas Club. (Thanks, Andrea!) Everything I used was bought from Ray Stitch. Yes, that is a map of Paris. I found myself hugging this to my chest on Christmas Day, even though this was made for my sister. I want one for myself now, though I’d have to invest in an iPad first, which might make it the most expensive make ever!
On Boxing Day, I helped a friend finish her first knitted item:
By total coincidence, this is the same snood that Sewaholic recently completed. Juicy Knits has also been making a version here. It’s a class act, no doubt about it. I recommended this project to Amy for a first make, though in hindsight I think this was a wee bit challenging for a novice – knitting in the round and not a quick make. But Amy did a sterling job and this is a beautiful accessory. I’ll admit, I’m jealous as hell. Might need to make another snood…

Hope you’re all enjoying the holidays! Me? I’m packing for stage two…
