Handmade Holiday

Okay, so I’m woefully behind on posting about wintery holiday related things, but in my defense, I’ve had a lot going on (work and otherwise) in the last few weeks. Top it off with a nasty cold and my impending deadlines calling to me before I leave for TNNA this weekend and I’d say I’m doing pretty well.

As someone who spends lots of her free time hooking for money (hahaha), I always feel kind of bummed that I don’t have time to make anything for anyone. But this year I did manage to squeeze out handmade gifts for a few people, hooray!


First off is this knit hat I made for my brother Mark. He requested one two years ago when I gave them to Paul and Jasenn, although he totally forgot that request by the time I gave it to him. It was an unglamourous presentation. He was staying over at our house and I basically kicked him out of his room on Xmas morning so I could search for it, having just remembered that I made it (because I made it very early in the year). My knitting skills have improved vastly since I made this hat but it looks good and he likes it, score!

tegue's new hat and mittens

I also made some mittens and a hat for my nephew. Alpaca might not have been the smartest choice for an almost three year old but what the heck, I wanted to spoil him. I made the mittens about a month ago but the hat was a mad dash at the last minute, just hdc with some post stitching around the brim. It all worked out though and he now thinks I have superpowers. He found a plastic ball in the yard a few days ago (must have been thrown over by the neighbors) and kept saying, “LaLa (that’s me) made it!”. It’s very cute that he knows I made the hat and he kept asking for it, even though, let’s face it, TX is a bit warm for alpaca.

grandma, tegue and ann

I was also finally able to deliver this shawl to my grandma. I finished it a while ago but had been waiting to block it and sew on a label (basically one that says “Don’t Steal Me, Jerks!” so I got it in gear just in time for the holidays. This is actually a very early prototype of a design that you’ll see from me sometime in 2011, although you won’t recognize the finished result based on this one. I think she liked it, but she was having a lot more fun playing with Tegue.

I hope you all had a nice holiday. If you read this and you’ll be at TNNA, please say hi if you see me! Hopefully I’ll have ditched my trail of kleenex by then.

    Hi Linda, I found you through Craft (I love your tutorial for adding a ruffle to a cardigan) and then realized that I've seen and used your patterns! I love to crochet and subscribe to Crochet Today, among others, and have Little Crochet on my wish list.
    I write for the Examiner and would love to feature you, your up coming book and tutorials. If you are interested please email me! Thanks!

    What is this about the label? Did someone steal her shawl? Great makes as always A x

    I love the color of the hat & gloves for your nephew!

    Tegue just keeps getting cuter and cuter! I enjoy Christmas much more if I can give some handmade gifts.
