Handmade Christmas

Over the last month or so I have been busy making Christmas presents.

Crocheted cowls are definitely the theme this year!

Buttoned... a shorter version of this
... and using the same pattern as the blue cowl (alternating SC and DC) I crocheted a cushion cover (above).


Every year I try to make some of my Christmas cards and this year I used a photograph I took back in February
Using PicMonkey I faded the edges, spun him around and gave it a more frosted look
All set now to get writing the cards and wrapping the gifts *opens a bottle of wine and puts on a Christmas CD*

So...if you don't knit for toffee...would you consider taking peanut butter fudge or potato candy as payment? *LOL* :O)
