I have been knitting and as per usual I have forgotten to blog about it. Well here are a few items I sent off recently for a friend who had a little boy over 6 months ago. I like to wait and sent something later since the new baby usually gets lots of newborn and baby stuff so I knit something for the 6-12 month range..
First of all these friends have a daughter and I never send something for the new baby without sending something for the child who's now a big sister (or brother). Can't leave them out!! Mom did this set. I hope it's not too big for a toddler...

I have some pics from this years Christmas Crafts I thought I'd share. Mom and I did some painting. I like to include an ornament with gifts for my family. I have a tree full of homemade and collectible ornaments that I enjoy unpacking every year so I try to spread that joy around.
This one was for my nephew
This one was for my niece
This one was for my brother and his wife (my fav this year!)
Mom did all of these except the cat in the sock. The angel ended up an African angel after mom's attempt to make the hair black ended up smudged on the face. I put that ornament on my Angels and Light tree. I think it's so cute!
This one was for my step sister in honour of her cat, DJ
I did this one for my friend who goes with a snowman theme. I put white glitter inside the ball like snow.
I did a set of 4 of these for my step brother and his wife. Just in time too as they had a big tree and needed more ornaments.
