Lots of Christmas knitting...

Image
Christmas started early this year... On Ravelry, I was part of a 'Glitter & glamour' exchange, which meant a whole group of grown-up women decided to send each other fun, useful or just plain beautiful gifts, simply because we want to ;) This was what hit my doormat one afternoon (well, actually, the postman had to ring the doorbell...) And inside? A whole pile of packages, and chocolate coins. My own little helper was on hand to help...
See that look on his face? That's him begging if he can please, please, please have one of the chocolate coins...
And after we unwrapped all the gifts...
I had a desk full of yummies, a soft scarf, black soft yarn, a new circular needle and glittery body lotion... And as luck would have it, we drew each other, so while I was unwrapping (blogless) Cloudhead's package, she opened mine... She got some of the snowflakes I crocheted over the last few weeks... Snowflakes were crocheted galore over the last few weeks, as some were also donate…

Foppe

Sometimes when you make something, you can't wait to give it. This was one of those situations.
A while ago, I won some yarn spun by Annita, with a pattern for her Suusje mouse. I had knit this pattern before, so my hands were just itching to get started! The cuddly toy was knit up quickly and last week I gave it some eyes and put in the stuffing, to bring it to life.
Suus, or Foppe, was then wrapped in Sinterklaas paper....
And put into the bag with presents... Big Sister Famke got to unwrap it. See it on the floor next to Batman? It's the yellow oblong one...
Now we all just have to wait (a looooong time) before her wee brother decides to make his entrance into the world...
And guess who we ran into yesterday? We actually got to say thankyou for delivering our presents in person!
