The Great Holiday Roundup of 2012 Part 4.

So to finish up our Great Holiday Roundup, I have my littlest brother’s present. He asked for a crazy hat for when he goes snowboarding, and I was happy to oblige. I found this great pattern, and not only was it a snap to knit, it was a lot of fun! (and I even got …

The Great Holiday Roundup of 2012 Part 3.

In this next portion of our regularly scheduled programming, I will show off the Christmas gift that I am the most proud of.  Meet Al.    Al was a gift to my 20 year old brother, and I wasn’t entirely sure about that choice. The pros were that a red elephant named big Al is …

The great holiday roundup of 2012 Part 2

Well, it’s about that time again! I shall reveal the next in my series of Christmas gifts for the family. If I’m not as scintillating* or witty* as usual, you must excuse me, because I seem to have picked up some kind of nasty bug while flying back from Christmas with my family. To say …

Eventually, I will get some pictures of my Christmas presents, but the time is not yet now. However, in order to prove that I am *actually* finishing things, here is a …

A funny thing happened the other day..

It’s Christmas knitting time, so I have been visiting the yarn store approximately twice a week.  This is significantly more often than is normal for me, but at the moment is entirely necessary. A few days ago, I went to the yarn store to get even MORE Ultra Alpaca for my little brother’s Christmas hat. …

I won a giveaway!

Dear Blog,  I recently won a giveaway from Monica over at When life gives you lemons… I’ve been meaning to blog it for a while, but I’ve been hopelessly remiss. I love getting mail, and I absolutely lost it over all these goodies! First off, the view on opening the box..   I was surprised to …

An update on Christmas Knitting

Since I decided this year to do almost entirely handmade Christmas gifts (alsdf;afjdsl;j WHAT WAS I THINKING????) I figured that I’d let all of you know how it’s working out for me. I may be a wee smidge behind schedule, but not irretrievably, I hope. For Dad: Dad has a grant total of one finished …
