Shifting Gears to Gifting.

Dee:  After my month long knit-a-thon for NaKniSweMo, which I totally plan to participate in next year, I’ve started in with crafting Christmas gifts.  Well, I did switch out the bear buttons on my sweater first for ones that had Nordic design and just look better overall.

So, then I got to business and tried my hand at some crochet…not my strong suit…at all.  I wanted a sunny side up egg cotton washcloth to gift with a bar of bacon soap that I found at a craft show.  I had to watch an online video frame by frame to learn how to crochet a flat circle.  After that I had to adapt my stitches to keep the thing flat and a bit free form to mimic the egg.  It turned out pretty well and made me smile so all’s good.

Next I got to work on some wooden sheep ornaments.  I placed a custom order back in July with a guy on Etsy and then added my own felt ears before wrapping them up in colorful fleece.   I have an entire flock to outfit however they need to have their ears added first.  Cute huh?!
