2013 Holiday Crafting in Review – Knitting and Crochet

Now that the holidays are over and life is settling back to its normal pace I can share some of what I accomplished over the season. I was determined this year to give as many handmade gifts as I could and think I was pretty successful in my endeavor.

Toys of course for my cutie pie of a nephew. I crocheted Max and Carol from Where The Wild Things are using this pattern from Alison Hoffman. He will get the other two for his birthday later this year.

 I also went on a cowl making binge and produced these beauties.

I was very proud of myself that I stuck to my decision and did not fall back on just going to the store (aka Amazon.com) and just buying stuff.  Did you do a lot of handmade items?

Up next, my sewing projects.
