One of the blogs I follow has put up some holiday questions to answer. So here’s my answers to the latest questions on NothingButKnits blog.
A few years ago I made 4 decorations for my tree, to represent my sister, BIL, niece and nephew…they are a felt gingerbread couple and 2 owls using kits from Hobbycraft. I have tree decorations that represent most of the important people in my life. This year I filled some glass baubles with sparkly fibre and they are on the tree and I made a fibre Christmas Pudding. Both can be seen on this previous post.
I remember making paper chains as a kid (I think!), my memory is hopeless!
I have gifted a hat and cowl set to my husband and made him a pair of socks, another hat and currently making a 3rd one for him. I am not confident enough with sizing to make him total surprises yet. I have made a couple of surprises this year for a family member, but I am not certain things I have made and given to other people are used/worn, except by my husband. The new hat for my husband, is using my homespun fractal yarn. After that my Ravelry queue is full of items to make for myself. Knitting is such a slow way of making things, so if people aren’t knit worthy they may be wet felting worthy instead. I don’t regret any gifting I have done, but they may not get any more.
My Pinterest is full of crafty projects I’d like to make, but I have felting group in a couple of hours and still haven’t decided what to make yet!
