The Presents!

This is what has kept me busy this holiday season.
This is the free pattern that I post earlier. I made this purse for my Hairdresser? Stylist? Not sure what the PC term is, but that is who this was for.
Here is a cowl that I made for my friend Em. This was a quick and easy project and best of all... a free pattern! Found here
I couldn't get a great picture of this for some reason (the lighting was bad no matter what I did) but this is the Princess and the Pea doll that I made for my niece. I also bought her a Princess and the Pea book to go with it. I got this knitting pattern from this book.
Here is a scarf that I crocheted. I "made up" this pattern, which was just rows of color, each in a row of single crochet and a row of double crochet. I got a little carried away with this one and the finished measurement was something like 10' from end to end. It was fun to make, though! :-)
I look like a dork in this picture :-) My hair looks strange and I have a weird smirk on my face but it is the headband that matters. I made this for my son's Kindergarten teacher for Christmas. I sort-of made up this pattern too.
And some hand warmers to match for the same Kindergarten teacher.
Here is the frog/turtle flip toy that I made for my nephew. I got the pattern out of this book.
The magic.
The other side.

I already have a list of projects to make in the new year. First up... cleaning house :-)
