Despite it all, there has been plenty of Christmas crafting this year. I don't know why I've started so early, or been so organised about it. Who knows? But - without wishing to boast - the christmas basket is starting to brim with handcrafted goodies all made from
- three pairs of socks (one adult; two child);
- two men's hankies (upcycled from an old shirt);
- three quilts for a dolls bed (also upcycled from various shirts and sheets);
pattern: generic top down
yarn: German sock yarn, bought at Peebles show in 2010.
But, now all that's finished, I'm not quite sure what to do next. Someone at work is expecting twins in the new year and I was thinking about making some weeny jackets for them; I've got a Clothkits dress for the jelly bean languishing somewhere, and various plans for dressing up clothes to add to our dressing up basket, plus a friend that I owe a hat .... Any suggestions? Perhaps a glass of sloe gin will help? It can't hurt, can it?
