12 Days of Solstice: Day 4


A great covert operation is under way around here:  handmade holiday gifts.  In our house, someone is always awake.  This means that there is never any good time for secret gift making and we have to get creative.  I won't even mention the hat I knit in the bathroom one year!  A few rows here, a few rows there...

Jake is up to something in the basement.

Luke has three gifts wrapped and under the tree.

I managed to knit this sweet little fox, while Mike and I watched a movie last night.  It's for Luke and I'm hoping that I can finish it tomorrow morning before he wakes up.

Now, that only leaves a gift for Cole, Jake and Mike.  I can totally make that happen in seven days, right?  Um, it's a good thing they won't mind if their handmade gifts are a little late this year!

  3. What a cute little fox - I love him! I find that if I just sit quietly and don't say anything nobody asks what I'm stitching at - maybe that's just my indifferent family! ;o)

    1. I lost the ball band on the orange, so I'm not sure what the brand is. I think it's got a little mohair or maybe alpaca in it, and it's a dk weight. I had to do a little adjusting on the chest to make it work, but I think it turned out pretty great!

    2. I think it turned out perfect!
      Lol! You sound like me, I always lose my ball bands. :P Ooo! Alpaca! Now there's a fiber I must get my hands on someday....

  5. Alpaca is so soft and dreamy! If it wasn't so expensive, I think I'd knit everything in it's fuzzy goodness. :)
