Some homemade holiday gifities: While I'm still learning to actually read a pattern, I've been really enjoying crocheting. Just simple things, but I think they came out pretty cute. I made a bunch of fingerless gloves-- Big ones, for the Mister's Dad:
And several little ones, for smaller hands:
Those striped ones are for a certain little guy, who just became shy about wearing his favorite color pink to school. (Which makes me sad, but that's a whole other story.)
And a wavy scarf for the mister's mother:
I wanted to make more of these felt letter ornaments, but I left if to the last minute and ended up only whipping up a few.
They were so easy, and I really liked how they came out. I wish I had made more of them. Next year!
I did end up making those mini meringues, but I chickened out on the marshmallows.
(But my mom and I must have been on the same wavelength, cause she made a few batches. So I got to snack on hers! Marshmallows melting in coffee= yum! Who knew? ) If you haven't ever made meringues, I recommend it-- they were so easy!
Here are the goodies all packaged up-- meringues, cookies, coconut macaroons, and some Trader Joe's Hot Chocolate.
I'm still gathering up the names of all the sellers I bought wonderful things from this season. I'll post about them tomorrow!
