Getting There

I've been working on Christmas gifts lately, but also a few other things.  Pardon all the phone photos!

A bag for my grandma:

Mitts for my sister:

A scarf for my aunt:

I'm also working on a hat for my dad, but I don't have any photos of it yet.  It's the same pattern as the next one, but in black and red to match a scarf I made him a few years ago.  There will also be socks for my mom, but those haven't even been started yet.

My friend requested a hat.  It's a bit big, but he likes it.  He also is a great hat model, lol:

I'm also nearly done (finally!) with Josh's sweater.  Since these two pictures, I've done the collar and have started sewing in all the ends.  The sleeve cuffs are a bit big and might get ripped out and decreased more; Josh isn't sure yet though.  I still have the zipper band and will have to sew in a zipper.

I've also been making little things for a gift exchange online.  I'm using these wonderful little Lion Brand Bonbons.  They're really great to work with and the colors are great.  They have a few other packs, but I like these colors the best:

I've been reading a lot lately too, which I've missed.  I've been reading all year, but sometimes it's harder than others and I'm finally enjoying it again.  I read three books last week alone and am blowing through the current one. :)

I also won a giveaway on Dull-Roar for the "Ghosts" ebook and I can't wait to read it and make some things from it. :)
