Crafty Christmas

We've been doing a lot of crafts lately. We will be giving homemade Christmas gifts this year. It's not a new thing since I've been making gifts for the past few years. I've knit hats, scarves, and wash cloths. I've also crocheted wash cloths and oven mitts. We've made ornaments too. This year the girls are very involved and love making things for people. I can't give away too many details so I don't spoil the surprise for the few who read this!

Here's what the girls and I have been doing all weekend. They have both learned to knit and crochet. I'll post a picture of these pieces later because they are already a lot bigger than they were when I took this one.

Put me down for a potholder. The one you made last year has been my favorite -- so thick and soft -- used daily. JUST THIS MORNING it caught on fire when I laid it too close to the gas flame on the stovetop when boiling water. Just burned the corner -- still usable, but I think the corner is going to start unraveling. Maybe you can repair the corner so it doesn't unravel. I hate to lose it! Keep those fingers humming.
