Holiday knitting and sewing
I decided to dedicate most of my holiday crafting to my sweet mama this year. She mentioned she would like a kitchen apron and has been admiring one of my shawls for some time now. I used June's apron pattern with Loulouthi fabric from Anna Maria Horner. I just love the fabric and how it all came together. This fabric has such beautiful colors and prints I may have to add it to my every growing quilt to do list. I was thinking of this one.I have spent most of my knitting time since Thanksgiving working on the textured shawl. My Mom picked out a beautiful teal silky merino from Malabrigo yarn on her last visit up her in the fall. I made it a bit bigger than mine for more warmth and it turned out quite nice. I finished it the week before Christmas and thankfully it arrived in time!I did not get around to knitting and sewing half of what I would have liked to for the holidays. I would like to make toys for the little ones and more holiday decorations, maybe something for Slater too. Next year I think I will start in the summer!
