I knit it myself!

I present you with a month’s worth of knitting (read: TV watching).

The Sunny Baby Blanket.

I love it.  Mostly because it’s so pretty, and that I can say I knit it myself!  Really, though, this one really taught me a lot about knitting.  I made a lot of mistakes, but through going back and fixing them (thanks to Suzie for teaching me how to undo stitches – I ripped out a lot of rows), I learned how to prevent mistakes or fix them as I go.

So thank you, blanket, for what you taught me this month.  I feel like a better knitter because of you.

(Merry Christmas to my future niece/nephew!)

Christmas copycat

So.  Christmas is coming at an alarming speed.  Anyone else completely unprepared??  Don’t get me started on Christmas shopping.  I am still slowly finishing my Christmas cards.

Enter: the topic of this post.  If you are in Pinterest and perusing Christmas crafts (you mean that’s not how you spend your evenings??), you may have come across this.  When I saw these photobooth props, I knew I had to have them for a Christmas card photo!  But I don’t like to pay for things I feel like I can make on my own.  To the craft drawer!

With a little foam, scissors, tape, and bamboo skewers, I was able to make my own!  (Because I’m a copycat like that.)

Now to convince the Husband to pose for a photo…
