Catching up for Christmas

Hello my lovelies, Christmas has come and gone, I've had some wonderful days with family and friends, lots of great food and great gifts, and lots of giving gifts which I love even more, especially when those gifts are handmade and the recipients really really like them. Last time we spoke, a few of these gifts were still to be finished, so let me catch you up on those - I'm happy to report that everything that needed doing by Christmas has been done!


 I finish-finished the two little Mill Hill kits, Polar Bear and Panda. They were originally supposed to be fridge magnets, but I decided to give them both hangers and finish them as ornaments. My two coworkers called me 'crazy' and grinned from ear to ear when receiving them ^_^


Lestrona has been successfully blocked, and I couldn't be happier with it! My grandma couldn't as well, she just complained that she had dressed in the wrong colours for Christmas Eve so it wouldn't match and she couldn't wear it right away. Something pulling through with older projects *really* can be worth it...






Grandpa's hat was also finished and loved. I still need to do Felix' hat, but he says he doesn't mind if it takes a bit longer. I'm still trying to get it done while it is still winter!


Not a Christmas gift, but I still managed to make some progress on the Hobbits Meal Plan before we left to spend time with Felix' parents (I can't take it with me because a) it's on the floor stand and b) his brother is here as well). I kind of wanted to finish the whole 'Afternoon Tea' instead of just the 'Afternoon', but I'll still have two more weeks to work on this once we get home.





Last but not least, I also finished the socks for Felix' dad - on the car ride there, with minutes to spare before we arrived! I didn't even have time to take a proper picture before giving them and had to snatch them back for a minute later to take this shot. I'm really pleased with how these turned out, maybe I'm slowly getting the hang of knitting socks.

I realize I still owe you guys the final WIPocalpyse post for the year, but as it's meant to be a recap of 2016 and the year is not over yet - I still have a few days with nothing much but crafting to do! - you'll have to wait a bit longer. There are still some more things I want to get done and show you before then :D

  1. Yay! Great finishes on everything. I've done the last few stitches on knitting as well in the car on the way there. :)

  3. I can see why your coworkers were so pleased with their ornaments, they are just adorable. I've had a few of those finish as you pull into the driveway projects - well done on yours.
