Thought I would post an update on the great Christmas knitting. Since I just learned to knit and was proud of myself, I wanted family to receive a hand-made gift from me. Six presents were finished in time to be wrapped and a final one finished and delivered in January to a friend.
Fuzzy Feet, a felted slipper pattern was given to the women in the family and it seems everyone liked it. The Niece and I felted a bunch of them and I learned a valuable lesson about felting. If it has been a while since knitting, turn the item inside out before felting or you may get a pot holder! Thankfully we were able to open the slipper up so you could insert your foot. Whew!
Fuzzy Feet for sis:
Convertible Mittens for Niece
Cap for Nephew
And while I was in a needlework mode, I crocheted some “Hamster Huts” for the Niece’s micro hamsters
