So, what needs updating from the last post? Ahhh... first, the Husbeast Socks. Came out awesome! Unfortunately, they are one of the things I neglected to get a completed picture of. I thought of taking a picture right now, but Bob is wearing them for the first time today. :) They fit him perfectly.
I found a great Fingerless Mitt pattern in the Ravelry database. Loved it so much I've made multiple pairs. Made some for me, some for a Christmas exchange (more on that later), for my friend Sheila for Christmas and for Molly (no pic yet).
Here's the ones I made for Sheila:
My Christmas exchange momma on SweetPeace was Hawkfeather. She also got a pair of Fingerless Mitts, in colors I thought suited her:
In those same colors I made her a felted purse (my first!!):
Excuse the linty picture. I DID de-lint it and block it into shape before gifting it. LOL! Here it is pre-felting and post-felting shown next to a phone book for size reference:
I also sent some little doilies that I didn't take pics of. They were thread crochet and none more than about 4 inches across. Finally, I sent a cloth with a special meaning:
Sheila's other gift was a Felted Crochet Hook Holder, with hooks. Here are the process pics on that:
Add the non-felted holder/closure strip:
How about some hooks?
And, finally, closed up:
This post is already getting long. I'm going to post a second one about my Christmas gifts from Bob and what I've done since Christmas. :)
