Hooks and Needles

The hooks and needles are flying around my house.  I'm still working on "giftmas" knitting and crocheting. ( a special thanks to Denise for that wonderful word!) Some gifts have even been handed out.  My sister was here for Thanksgiving (YEA!) and I so enjoyed her company.  I sent Charli's gift home with her and I actually let her open hers because she is currently working in Virginia and could use it....that's right, she was the recipient of the lace socks. I do believe she liked them.

There is still so much to get done.  However, I was able to finish one very sweet little gift this weekend...

Sorry for the lousy picture, but this is a little dress for Piper.  I think I'm pretty safe in showing this because I seriously doubt that my month and half old niece will be cruising blogs anytime soon.  I have to block it so that the lace pattern at the bottom doesn't look like holey knitting.  I also made a little something to go with it.....

Because  every well dressed Little Miss needs a coordinating diaper cover.  I have enough yarn left over that I thought about making some little booties...hmmm....the possibilities.  Or would that be over kill?

After all the craziness of the past month, it was absolutely wonderful to spend some quiet time at home knitting while watching Christmas movies.  It really did help get me into the spirit. 

This week we will be getting all the boxes out so that we can decorate the house.  Talk about over kill.  It looks like Christmas positively throws up at our house with all the red, green and gold.  But it does make for a cheery house and I think we need a little cheery about now.

Have you decorated yet or are you slow like me.  Do you celebrate Christmas? Hmmm...inquiring minds want to know....Hope you have a wonderful week!


  1. There is simply no way to overdo baby knitting.. you need booties and a hat and a blanket.. get busy, little miss. :-)
    You know about my decorating "problem".. too much of it maybe? Can't wait to see more of what you will do.

  2. Oh I love the little dress and diaper cover, booties would be so cute or a little headband with a crochet flower (?)
    I am decorated here, but not much, I don't have a mantle, or window ledges etc. so decorating is minimal. Glad things are on the up now xo Sandi

  3. "...wonderful to spend some quiet time at home knitting while watching Christmas movies. It really did help get me into the spirit." Me too! Oh goodness, does it help! I love the color scheme of your knitted goodie. Adorable.

  4. Love those pants!
    Thanks for stopping by mine, have a wonderful Christmas!

  5. These are so gorgeous! What a lucky niece you have. Love the colours.
