I'd love to share a few pictures with you (I am going to TRY to attach them here. If, they don't show up I'll also have them posted on my blog at:

I love to loom knit. I took a little wool from each of my English Angoras, spun it, and then loom knitted along with another yarn I had to make this pretty little hat. I like the hat so much I kind of want to keep it..I wont though. :)

Here is where I dressed up our tree skirting. The picture didn't turn out that great.

Here is a another loom knitted project (I still need to add the button on it.)

Ok, I better get back to making gifts.. I just wanted to share these pictures with you guys.

Very pretty! Your giftees will be snuggy warm this winter :)

The treeskirt is a GREAT idea for folks with kids (even without, I suppose). hmm. good idea for giving to Grandma/Grandpa, too. from the kids, you know how hard it is to find something they'd USE and not just sit on a shelf and have to dust!

oh golly. now my idea-part-of-brain is taking over. You could do silhouettes of the kids..shine a bright light on the profile of the child with a paper background. trace the shadow. Put it on felt...oh my Gran would have LOVED that.....
I hope they like it. The Angora hat is going up to Ohio (hopefully she'll wear it.)

I wish my camera would have taken a better picture of the treeskirt thing. It's kind of cute. I made a pocket where I can change pictures each year on it.

You know though, I forgot to put the year on it (kids grow fast and I can see us later on looking at it and wondering when I made it.) Maybe I'll put that on the back of it.

Nice crafting!! Very pretty and well done.

I need to work on my sewing but that's why most of the things I sew I One day I'll get better at it and start giving more sewed things as gifts instead of knits.

Thanks again!
