Remember this post, about wanting to make small knitted gifts for the family? Well I got around to it and knitted these for the girls~
The pattern is found in Knit Simple.I like to think of them as "peppermint slippers" because of course they are colors of peppermints. For my youngest daughter I used smaller needles and decreased the number of rounds knitted-also a crocheted draw sting was also added so that the fit could be a bit more snug. The girls tell me that the slippers are cozy, which of course makes me happy.
I also did a little sewing for the small pillows on the couch~
patchwork style, my seaming could have been a bit more precise, but I still think they add a colorful touch to the living area.
In the kitchen~
fruitcake-Swedish style, I made this last year-I love it, it's light and not as dense as the traditional fruitcake. I didn't have all the dried fruit that was listed in the recipe, so I just used what dried fruit I had in the cupboard, which included dried cranberries, dried apricots, candied ginger, and raisins.
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to all the new possibilities of the New Year.
