Almost Christmas

Well Christmas is almost upon us and I really haven’t gotten much done to show for it. I found out that I have the beginning stages of Rheumatoid Arthritis so have been mired in the Internet for the last three weeks trying to figure out what happens with this disease. I did start some knitting today but I have to admit that as far as getting homemade gifts ready for Christmas this year was so-so.

I did make some more oven towels.

The tutorial for these towels is over at the right-hand side of this blog.

I also spun up a little hank of the wool I had dyed (shown in previous posts).

I also managed to do a low-water immersion shirt for my son.

I also bought some stuff from KnitPicks.

Not much else going on right now. I need to clean the dining room and put up the tree (I hate doing this but the grandkids will be here) so I can’t see blogging again before Christmas so I’m wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year šŸ™‚

Crayon Rolls

I finally finished the crayon rolls for the Sunday school for Christmas. I used a variety of kids prints I’d been collecting all year long with some of my hand-dyed fabric, lol, I went and checked the link to the tutorial in last year’s post and noticed last year the hand-dyes were part of the background whereas this year I’d used them to make the pockets. Here they are all sixteen of them.
