Now that the holidays have come and gone (despite the fact that we still have our Christmas tree up and will leave it up until April, probably), I guess I should finally post photos of some projects I made and gifted.
My friend Cheryl gave me some gorgeous Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga! yarn in the colorway stink bug…
…which ended up becoming Ysolda Teague’s Orchid Leaf Shawlette for my Mom.
This Karabella Aurora 8 yarn that I bought at School Products in NYC…
…became the Urban Necessity Gloves for my brother, henceforth know as “the slap-chop mitts”. Because “flip-top” was just too difficult to say.
Some lovely fabric I bought at Loom Exquisite Textiles and the Quilt Patch turned into a patchwork shopping tote for my SILs. This is the Jumi Einkaufstasche, so named after the recipients. Patchwork on both sides, boxed corners, lined, approx 16″ tall and 16″ wide, not including straps. I designed this myself and I’m pretty stinking pleased with it. (click for larger photo)
You can never go wrong with orange woodgrain fabric.
