Christmas Present

Well, Christmas is over and I finished a lot of handmade christmas presents!

For my grandmother, I knit some mini christmas stocking ornaments. I loved this gift, as I just knit them throughout the year whenever I wanted a small, easily finished project. And I think they turned out adorable!

Thread Bags

Recently I've been having a lot of fun making a few bags out of thread--DMC perle cotton, to be precise. I love to knit and crochet with thread, but these bags have been extra fun!

First Ever Quilt!

I made my first quilt! It's quite small, about 2.5' x 3' and intended for my dog and kitty. They both adore blankets and I figured this way if it turned out super bad it'd still be okay, because animals tend not to be too picky.

The quilt is hand-pieced and hand-quilted, and made entirely from my cotton-prints-I-found-in-the-remnants-bin collection. It's backed with a plaid flannel that I think is especially sweet because it matches both my black and white dog and my black and white kitty!

Here is a pic of my puppy, Maggie on her new quilt:

Baby Presents!

One of my cousins had her first baby, so I made her some presents and thought I'd share.

First I knit her this pink blanket:
I made it with Plymouth Encore yarn, so it could be machine washed. I think it turned out well!
