A frigid winter week on the farm meant checking on critters often and spending a lot of time by the fire working on Christmas presents.
Knitting And Sewing
I finished all the Christmas Eve flannel PJs! 4 pairs of flannel pants and one nightgown. I purchased Mr. Smiles’ PJs because he still isn’t quite big enough for the flannel PJ pants to work for him. So all that is left is PJs for me. Hopefully I will get to that in the upcoming weeks. Sorry, I don’t have any pics because they all got wrapped before I could photograph them because I didn’t want anyone to accidentally see them.
But mostly I have been knitting, knitting, knitting like crazy trying to finish the on-second-thought-maybe-I’m-in-over-my-head projects I chose to make for Christmas presents this year. The good news is that I finished one, which leave only two more to complete.
I asked Mtn Man to delete this post from his email and not read it so I could show you his present, which is the one I finished this week.
It is an afghan that I partially designed by taking the pattern Stag Head Pullover by Nora Gaughan and making it into an afghan (instead of a sweater) and rearranging the antlers to make them look more like the mule deer in our area. I used “Everything Yarn” that Mtn Man made in the mill. I am SUPER happy with how it turned out and cannot wait to give it to him. I think he will love it.
So now I just need to finish the dress for Little Miss and socks for Young Man. I am hopeful no one will have to get their Christmas presents still on the knitting needles, but I am accepting that it might happen that way. Time will tell…for now, I need to get back to my knitting. 🙂
