Do you realize that we’re 4 months away from Christmas?!?! This year has just flown by. Well, honestly, the last couple months of my pregnancy crawled on so slowly that I thought I was going to go insane, but now I suddenly have this 3 month old baby and I just can’t believe it! 4 months might seem like plenty of time to prepare for Christmas, but I’ve decided to do a handmade Christmas this year, inspired by all my crochet and crafty pins on Pinterest! I also decided it would be a wonderful tradition for me to make new blankets for my kids each year. So, I’ve started working on my daughter’s afghan. I picked out this DROPS pattern (and here it is on Ravelry). I’m leaving out square 3 because I’m not really lovin’ it… but the other squares are fab! I’m also making it smaller since it’s for a little 4 year old. So far, so good! I’ve worked 4 squares so far and have 26 left to go! I hope to be done in a month so I can move on to my son’s blanket (which will look a lot like this). Colors I’m using: pink, cream, buff, sungold, and sea blue.
I’ve also started on these adorable penguins. My daughter’s is almost done… I’ve been waiting on some safety eyes to arrive in my mailbox so I can finish it. Hers is pink and my son’s will be aqua blue.
And how adorable are these felt finger puppets?!? I’m thinking I’ll do this set plus a farm animals set (for the Old MacDonald song).
Hubby will get a hat and that will probably be the only thing I’ll make him. I’ll buy him some other stuff too, of course… It’s just harder to make stuff for guys. lol
