X-mas Gifting

The needles have been busy.  I've mostly been knitting some Christmas gifts so far.  Scarf below in the this beautiful colourway. Some dish cloths as they are always a practical gift and uses up my cotton yarn stash. 

I managed to find some fur pom poms and one that matched my hat perfectly.

So  I picked up 4 different colours.

We're all decorated for Christmas now. This is the first year we put up Christmas lights outside.

A strand along the roof edge and one of those spotlights that swirls snowflakes. 

And this is the first year we put up the tree for my little guy. 
He doesn't seem to fazed or impressed. 

Happy weekend all!!

Christmas countdown

I finished my plaid pumpkin this week that I wanted to make as soon as I saw this on Instagram.
Pattern is from MegMadeWithLove. It took me a week to finish a few rows here and there.
The below picture is on a shelf with my dad's carvings. I believe I get my creativeness from him.

I added a few more accessories to my wreath.

Finished my hat off with a pom pom.  However, I think it needs a bigger pom pom.
I tried to find one of those faux fur ones that was the rage a bit ago but no store in 
my area seems to carry them anymore and ordering online, the shipping costs more
than the pom pom.  

I've been making little gifts for Christmas. 
What have you been working on? 

And a cute one of  our youngest cat.  He sure has the life.

Happy #caturday!!

Holiday crafting is underway.  I started the base wreath for this last year and finished that a month ago.  Sewing it on the foam was tedious.  I've still yet to add some additional crochet and or baubles.

I saw these amazing plaid pumpkins being made on Instagram and had to try them. The pattern is from @megmadewithlove .  I crocheted myself a new hat to match my new winter coat.  I want to put a faux fur pom pom on, just have to find one.  If not the usual yarn pom pom.

I'm still working on this starburst blanket.

Knitted a hat for my brother in law.  Starting scarf for a Christmas present. 

Has anyone watched Broadchurch?  I did love that show.  My co-worker went back to England to visit her family and she brought us fans back a few pebbles from the beach where the show was filmed.

It's been a month since my dad passed and had some emotional ups and downs.  He was cremated so we waited to do a small inurment gathering of just the family at the cemetery and then a gathering at my aunts with good food and good memories.  My aunts dug up some great pictures I either hadn't seen or hadn't seen in a long time of us and family.  So nice to do that.
But this picture is by far the best one I've seen of my dad. 

And to end a few pics of the kitties.
