Christmas Presents

My parents both said they didn't want anything for Christmas.  My brother said he didn't want anything that wasn't consumable.  But I get so much joy from the giving, as well as receiving.  So, I made slipper socks for the guys, and pocketbook slippers for the gals.   We celebrated Christmas with them last Saturday, and my brother said he needed the slipper socks, since they were trying to teach the dog to bring the slippers, and all she did was tear them up!  The pocketbook slippers look like a little purse before you put them on.  Jackie, my brother's SO, said she liked them, because they were easily packed for trips.

Do you make some or all of your Christmas presents?

This stocking was made for the daughter of a fellow teacher who has an inoperable brain tumor.  Other teachers are filling it with girly things like make-up, nail polish, fuzzy socks, etc.

I have made several pairs of slippers for "The Pink Slipper Project" and will be mailing them soon.

I celebrate Christmas all year by making things for others, and sharing God's love, hope and peace.  I am blessed to be able to create and to share my creativity.

Double Duty

I made a hat and neck wrap out of this yarn last year, and decided to make wrist warmers to match.  I also wanted to make a muff, but wanted to have both hands warm, so I made the wrist warmers a little longer so that I can combine them into a muff. Good timing too, since we had our first snow of the season the other day.
