Hi everyone! I want to take a quick moment to say thank you to all the people who read my blog…especially the ones who have stuck with me for several years! I really love reading EVERY SINGLE comment and enjoy hearing from you. So, from the bottom of my big Evie heart, thank you.

I hope you had a great Christmas. This year was especially fun for me, I wanted to create gifts for my loved ones instead of buying them for two reasons: 1. I love making things 2. Hauling two babies around all creation to find the perfect gift for all on my list did not seem like an option. So as soon as November hit, I started creating – and here is some of the bounty!

Fingerless Mittens // Scarflet with vintage buttons

I knit alot of the gifts this year, it just makes sense because I can do it anywhere, anytime. Ask my husband, I was knitting something almost every night!

This is a pretty knit I-cord piece that can be worn as a necklace or doubled up as a bracelet! Made out of baby alpaca from Peru. I just might have to make one of these for myself!

Cute bow hairclips for some sweet little girls. You know I gotta get the cute frilly stuff out of my system somehow…no girls to knit for in my house…yet.

This was one of my favorites to work on. Some coasters for my brother in law that had various photographs of London, a place he loves. I used this concept to make them.

Did you give/receive handmade this year? I’d love to hear!
