Back in December we had our annual Knitter’s Holiday Swap. This is the third year our local knit group (via Ravelry) has celebrated the holidays with handknits.
Louise (aka ladybugaloo) spoiled me rotten! She knit me the Broadstreet Mittens out of Malabrigo and gave me a package full of goodies including a gingerbread man soap, a button that says “chinchillin'” and has a picture of a chinchilla, sticker that says “knitters have balls” now adorning my laptop, lipbalm from Rocky Mountain Soap Company, and a polka dot project bag.
I spoiled Jesse (aka canadiantreefrog) and because I kept unravelling and reknitting the fingerless mitts, I was knitting at the dinner table before we swapped presents. However, I got them done and Jesse seemed to like—as did her birdie Ivan. I also made her chandalier earrings with Swarovski crystals.
