Knitmas time is here… Part 1
Posted December 3, 2012on:
You might remember that each year, a group of us knitters on Twitter take part in a Christmas swap, Knitmas. It’s so much fun! Last year I got a fantastic haul and hopefully my swap pal was pleased with her goodies. This year, I was gifting to Doogarry. Sadly for reasons unknown to me, I don’t have any pictures of the parcel I made up for her. I could have sworn I took some! Anyway, follow the link to her blog and she has written a lovely post about her parcel. I’m so glad she liked it!
The part 1 title is because I haven’t got mine yet. Any day now I hope! The excitement is killing me. When it does arrive, I’ll do a part 2. I can’t wait to find out who my Knitmas elf is!
In the meantime, I have HUGE news. Huge. I CAN HAZ CROCHET!
Yarn: Lily Sugar n Cream, various colours
Not only have I crocheted, but I translated from US crochet terms into European terms! I am mad proud of myself. They actually were very easy to do, once I figured it out. They’re not perfect, but I love them.
I had so much fun, I made two! I think they’ll have pride of place in my kitchen, to replace the poor old David Bowie doll that used to sit on top of the cooker hood. They’re too cute to use for eggs!
Of course, now I want to crochet ALL the things. Yippee!
