The past few days have been busy ones, filled with last minute shopping, several projects, baking, an extra long choir practice~all the good things that lead up to Christmas.
Yesterday, I attempted to make something from all these pieces!
Can you even believe this little guy was lurking in all that "mess"?
Way last spring I promised to make this for my young friend's American Girl doll and finally finished it in time for her birthday last week.
This cute pattern is available on Ravelry and knits up pretty fast. It takes a bit of patience to put the pieces together, but I think my little herd was worth the effort!
And then there was the washcloth with the Christmas yarn from Hobby Lobby that I started a while back. (That is really soft cotton yarn, by the way!)
Meanwhile, we are still waiting for a certain plane from Chicago and a certain baby who seems determined to arrive on schedule along with the New Year. We have some serious wrapping to do before then as well as a bit of decorating. Look at these cute ornaments and jewelry we found at the UW hospital this week, all profits to benefit cancer research. "Jewels of Hope" has an online shop at Etsy, too!
Oops! Gotta run and check on my cranberry bread; I think I hear the timer dinging.
PS: If you care to tune in, you can hear our choir on Christmas Eve at 6:30, 8:00, or 9:30 PM (PST). (All services are streamed live.) Merry Christmas!
