Another thing for the Christmas box




This is a sweater for our oldest grandson.  Pattern is 'Flax' by Tin Can Knits and can be found in sizes from 0-6 mos. up to 4XL HERE.  I used Vanna's Choice yarn and it worked up beautifully.  An easy pattern with just enough interest to make it not at all boring to knit.  I will be making this one again.

- THIS is another one of those patterns that's just too cute not to share.  And THIS is another one of those things (the pattern is there - you'll have to use the 'translate' feature)

- HERE's a really nice cross-stitched Christmas card pattern (or would make a nice ornament too).

- HERE's a nice hat pattern that might be a good gift.  THIS one too.  And THIS one.  And ANOTHER one.  Or how about THIS one.

- For those of you who are Harry Potter fans (or if you know someone who is) perhaps THIS might make a great gift.

- HERE is a lovely crocheted basket that would be a perfect gift.

- THESE would be so cute on a Christmas tree - or - as a little garland - or.....??  Or, if you want something just a tad more complicated, how about some of THESE?

- I found THIS which 'says' it's a potholder but to my mind it would make a beautiful piece of Christmas decor - or perhaps tucked into the Christmas tree.

- There are some interesting Christmas decor ideas HERE.  (Scroll down)

- and just to make you feel good, how about spending a few minutes watching THIS? I love the horses!!!  It seems the company has decided not to use the wonderful horses in their recent commercials and I think it's their loss.  

Instead of a quote today, I found this....

    What a great sweater. How long does it take you to knit a sweater? You make me want to give knitting another try. You have so many skills and so much talent.

  5. Now that I'm kind of 'side lined' with this broken ankle, MAYBE I can do some of these haha! That magnolia leaf wreath is beautiful and when I saw the cross-stitched card, that got me hankering to cross stitch again haha! Better send my husband to Hobby Lobby with a list!
