Here are a few of the handmade gifts given this year. This little sweater is for a doll.
I made one of these ascots a few years ago and really like it. The pattern is from a workbasket magazine from the 1940s. This one is made from alpaca. I should have looked in the mirror before taking the photo because I didn't have it on quite right.
There is just one toe left to knit on D's Christmas socks. I think I can finish that today.
B helped out a bit with our handmade gifts too. I couldn't find a frame that I liked for this print so he made one from some walnut he had in the basement.
He used old glass from a barn window and an old violin string for the hanging wire.
I think it turned out great.
I also consider my calendar handmade since I took the pictures. We gave a few of those too.
I think we did well to have a mostly handmade holiday.
edit: The print came from Jenny's Bake Shop on etsy. She has them in different sizes and colors.
