Gift Knitting

Thursday, December 18th, 2014 | blah blah blah, crafts, Design, FO's, Holiday, knitting, start to finish

I try my best to get things done on time when I am gifting something, but I don’t always make it. Poor Juline gets my gifts late every year, but luckily, she celebrates her birthday pageant style.

Linen Stitch takes awhile.

I wanted to knit something bad, but had no real ideas in mind. I just grabbed some yarn and started knitting a linen stitch swatch, hoping it would serendipitously figure out what it wanted to be.

Linen Stitch Pouch.

It did.

An up close view. I really like these buttons.

I am also a person who has an enormous craft stash. A lot of the time I will think “What could I make to go with this?” and I run to the supplies to see what I can put together. Since I designed jewelry in a former life, I have quite the stash of jewelry supplies just sitting around that are perfect for crafty gifts.

I also dipped into the jewelry making supplies.

I also sent some amazing soap from a soap maker that sells at our local Farmer’s Market. I hope she likes it!

I love it! The delicate knitting is impressive, the bracelet is my favorite xolor, and the soap smells like a Jolly Rancher. I cut it into thirds so it lasts longer. Thank you!

I am so glad you like it! The woman that makes the soap is local and sells it at the Burbank Farmer’s Market. She has some really great holiday scents. šŸ™‚
