Knitting for a New Nephew!
I have a new little great nephew and will get to meet him for the first time at Thanksgiving! Had to knit up a little gift for him! This little hat and booties is from "Natural Knits for Babies and Moms" by Louisa Harding. Quick and fun to stitch!
With so many big projects out of the way, there is time to have a little fun! I signed up to swap two crazy quilted Christmas crackers and got the covers pieced! It's enjoyable and a bit challenging to look over the recipients preferences and come up with something lovely for them!
This is the second one. I love the colors in this and think I may have to try a block based on this for myself!
I started this crazy quilted tree skirt for my little faux tree last year, but didn't get any further than stitching the seams. I hope to cover this with graceful curlicue branches and holly leaves!
