Handmade Holidays

For Mom: Breeze from Knitty

For Hubs: IK Holiday 2008 Aran Isle Slippers

For DS #2: Cabled Footies from OneSkein

For DS#1: (made this at Rhinebeck - just added the fleece lining for Christmas)

For my niece's American Girl Doll:

Last-minute Gift for Self, modeled on DS's perfectly round noggin :)

Ornaments: (the kids made these for everyone - very cute and easy to do)

And More Holiday Wishes from Frisky, hiding out under the tree with his handmade gift from Hubs's co-worker: a bunch of fleece stips knotted together securely to create a ropey thing with little ends hanging off all around. He is in love with it - a great gift idea for those doggies who have everything.

Also, thank you so much for your kind words and thoughts on my dad's passing. It has been a very difficult time. Thank god for family, good friends, and knitting - somehow we get through it, right?

Such nice gifts! Bet everyone was thrilled. Very cute ornaments too! Is that rolled up gift wrap strips? A Martha moment for sure!
