list of projects I wanted to get done for the holidays. This weekend, I was able to finish up the bookmarks for the boys. They didn't turn out exactly as I planned, but I think the boys will quite like them. The knit part is about 10" long and then the beads and braided tails stick out another 2-3" per side, so it makes them nice and long.
I found the pattern in this book but changed it up just the slightest bit. Trust me, the ones in the book look world's better. I even tried to iron them to see if it would help. It did, but I still much prefer the ones in the book. I think it is the weaving...I don't think I put in quite enough.
So now I have two stocking stuffers for each of the boys done...bookmarks, and slipper socks. Next up...I have pulled out the sewing machine and set it back up again to get to work on the next project when inspiration strikes. I have decided though, that before I knit any more holiday presents, I better make N another hat for his birthday. I have one finished up, but he loves them, and he shrunk his last year, and I just know he will do the same this year, so I am going to use up some leftover yarn to make him a second one.
Anyone else doing some holiday crafting? I know you are...I've seen some...do you have a link to share?
