Finally a bit later but here are some pictures:
The last two Shepherds
Donkey who I love and think is rather cute!
Ox who was a bit fiddly to sew up.
The Wise Men’s gifts. I’ve decided not to add anything else to them.
I did try making the star but found the gold tinsel thread hard to knit with and when I tried to make a pom pom with it…….Well it didn’t work and I had tiny bits of gold thread all over the lounge. This amused hubby no end!
Since then as part of my year of making I decided to brighten up an old coat by making some trimmings using the glowworm yarn. I had pink and orange but when I put up the finish pieces up to the coat I realised that the pink looked better.
Here is the finished product:
I was a bit unsure what to make next. I was trying not to cast on another project but focus on the wips. Two of the wips are shawls – a bit complicated to take to Knit Night. The other is a jumper and currently I’m not sure what I’ve done with the needles that I need for the ribbing. Hmm going to have to hunt for those.
The decision has been taken out of my hands. This year is becoming the year of the baby. A friend’s daughter gave birth today to a baby girl. 🙂 Also four of my friends are pregnant. I’ve been asked to make something a little special for one of them. Since the pins will be out I might as well make a few bits for the other babies – and the best bit booties are a good project to take along to Knit Night as they are small and not complicated. Win 🙂
