on the mend and off the needles

The kids are on the mend.  The projects that have been done for weeks are finally free from loose ends.  Creeping ever closer to completing crafted gifts for my tiny people and more.  The weekend is going to be filled with baking, fellowship and a certain little boy’s party.  How does six years fly by?

How are you doing on your Christmas gifts?  What projects are you planning?  Do share.  I love to reap the benefits of the many talented people and original ideas that are out there.

  1. Hey Jeni,
    The knitting thing didn’t work out for me this year but I really appreciate you trying to teach me. I went with what I know, crocheting. I have made two hats for the kids and six scarves for family members. I still need to make a few more. You will have to come over again and see the progress. I am so glad that I am doing homemade gifts and appreciate you giving me the inspiration to do so.

  2. I’m making hats and scarves for my mom and mom in-law, and my niece and 2 nephews. I’ve completed my nieces hat and scarf, I made a scarf for my mother in-law, a hat for my older nephew and a hat and scarf for my youngest nephew. BUT I want to redo the hat and scarf for my youngest nephew because it didn’t turn how I want it to. Since I’ve just picked up knitting this year, I’m having to redo lots of my work. I guess that’s what I get for not following patterns and coming up with it on my own. Experience is the fun part though. I’d say I’m half way done.

  3. I am not where I’d like to be, thats for sure!! I have my kids mostly done though, so I am happy about that. Now, I am working on finishing my 2 nieces scarves, then need to make beanies for all the guys in the family, and a few other projects I haven’t decided on. Luckily I am a chicken and only try easy stuff, so hopefully I will finish it all!

  4. Those are so cute. I’ve seen those and wanted them too. You can do it. Dolls aren’t as hard as they seem…I think :) I’ve made a rag doll before and it was easy.
