Crafting During Christmas Break

I knit the hat above thinking it it would be for me, well I still have to work on my color work, because the brim fits me, but the color is so tight that it doesn't stretch at all. I barely fits Reuben!

We each made a sock monkey (mom made two). Mine is the blue one with the purple flowers. When it comes to craft things I am pretty good at intuitively interpreting pictures and instructions, this is great when it comes doing things on my own, but when it comes to teaching others I just figure they are going to do things the way I am. So there were somethings I neglected to explain, and somethings that had to be ripped out and re-sewn. But all-in-all they each turned out pretty great.

I also made a few necklaces, and I am half way done with a busy book for Reuben. Its turning out pretty dang cute so stay tuned!

That is so cute!!! You are getting so good.

The color work will come. It took me a while. I still forget to leave extra space sometimes.
