Weekend of Crafts


This past weekend, I took some time off of Internet, and made a ton of knitted/crafty items. Tom went to a concert in Detroit, while I stayed at home with the boys (cats rather) and knitted up a storm. I got 7, YES SEVEN!!! items completed! WEEE!!! The Holiday Knitting is going great!!

Okay, so I am not really sure why these pictures rotated, but just turn your head and you'll see them just fine!

I knitted/felted these adorable baby booties from French Press Knits
I made these for a co-worker whose wife is expecting. We are having a party for them today.


I plan to make another pair for my soon-to-be nephew (Tom's sister) is having a baby boy!
However, I would love to make Cali Tom's niece, who is almost 3 a pair. I haven't quite figured out how yet, because she wears a childs 7. I will endeavour to figure this out.







I love how the green turned out!


















I have been working on my ribbon tree, from Yellow Songbird

However. . . (sighs) I was over-come with cute adorable ribbons, that I didn't think twice about the size. Well. . . I really should have gotten thicker ribbons, these two rows took forever! And I am not even all that sure it looks good.

Darn my attention span. . . for not getting thicker ribbon. I may do more though.























More slippers came out this weekend. They look a bit lumpy in the photo's but trust me these are my best yet by far!! After the holidays, I might just make a new pair for myself!















Now, this is a surprise!! I also couldn't post something else on here until after they receive it but I just had to add a little teaser! WOW THAT Rhymes!!! Any guesses??? You'll have to wait!
However, I not only got all of that wonderful knitting/crafting done, I got a lot of shopping done. I only have a few more items to get now, mostly internet shopping, CYBER MONDAY!!! Actually I cashed in my rewards on my credit card for a gift card to finish off my shopping. Smart eh? I figured it will save a bit. I also got myself a few deals *shhh* Nothing special, just a few long-sleeve tees from the Gap Outlet and Old Navy for like $1 each! So I didn't really over-spend there.
Sunday was spend with my man, enjoying our last day of vacation together. A bit of knitting, and a bit of Wii Resort Sports, and it is back to Monday. . . ugh. . . Can we fast-forward to Friday?? Actually my family is coming this weekend. Well just parts of my family. My Uncle, who lives in Michigan is turning the big 6-0!! And so, my Aunt and Uncle (brother and sister) who live in Canada, my Aunt from western, and my Uncle from London ON. It will be good to see them.

What concert did Tom go to? There was a pre-break Wolf Parade concert I was really hoping to go to in Detroit.
