my way through the Christmas crafting list.  I have a few projects completed and crossed off the list.  Still have a few to begin and a few to finish up.

Mom’s scarf is off the needles, done, blocked, and ready for gift giving.  The pattern is Baby’s Feather & Fan scarf (via Ravelry) and made using two skeins of Knit Picks Comfy in Flamingo on size 8 needles.  So soft, so beautiful, and has beautiful drape.  Now I’m anxious to give it to her.

In other Christmas crafting news, I came across an awesome handmade ornament list from Threadbanger.  (Seriously, check it out, so many awesome handmade ornaments over there including the cutest little birdie ornament).  I love making ornaments because, as least to me, a Christmas tree is a lot like my home, and I like to fill it with my favorite things.  Also, they make great last minute gifts, or even a pretty gift topper.

On the list was the cutest origami wreath ornament via Domesticali.  I’m not one to get into working with paper (I blame it on all those years I worked as the filing clerk in a doctor’s office and got numerous paper cuts), but these things were to cute not to make.  I’m making them not only for our tree, but also for all of K.’s teachers (including her music teacher).  The paper I used for these were from old books I’ve kept with the intentions of “doing something cool with them”.  Luckily, my Mom gave me all my old piano books so that was easy for K.’s music teacher, then I went through and ripped out the pages from the Forever Crochet book in this post here and used that for my material.  Best part about this project, cost me no $$$ and came out super cute!  Just need to thread though some embroidery floss and they’ll be done.
