holiday makings recap

this winter i have a real serious case of the knitting bug. in the midst of the flurry of holiday makings, you would find me on the couch beneath a quilt or two with a cup of tea & needles in hand knitting away at a project for a family member, dear friend, or... myself! oh, there were plenty of lotion concotions, lip balm creations, peppermint bark making & a bit of sewing here & there, but i was most excited about my hand knit gifts this year.

here's just a little recap of a few projects i made:

a cowl for a dear friend from this pattern. it was very easy & only took a couple of hours. i purchased the buttons half price from jo ann's back in november & i just love them.

i gifted this hat to my brother on christmas day. he asked for a vintage-inspired hand knit hat with a large pom pom & the vermonter fit the request! i absolutely love this quick pattern & plan to make a few more.

& of course no winter season is complete without a mug rug. this one is made from leftover deliciously wooly & bright yarn from another project. it makes me smile & was inspired by sweet sara

we hope you had a warm & cozy handmade holiday this year! i'll be back on monday with my best of 2012! 

p.s. you can find me on ravelry here.

girl your knitting looks SO GOOD. seriously professional looking! I love the big, chunky look of the cowl and the hat. and those buttons on the cowl are so precious too.

I love seeing all of the things you knitted! I had never heard of a mug rug, but that is too cute! I am just starting to become adept at crocheting, and I can't wait to learn to make more things with it. I'd like to learn more about knitting next!
