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.

Festivus Miracle Swap-o-Rama gift

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.
