Handmade Gifts

It has been a busy week here so far especially for Little L who has been in her first nativity play at Primary school, been to her first school Christmas party and will be going to her first disco this week. The boys are going to the cinema and bowling with their school. I can't wait for them all to break up for the holidays because then it will feel more Christmassy but that maybe because I subject them to every Christmas film going on TV.

Little L has gave out the teachers presents which I made for her yesterday as I think that the rest of this week is going to be hectic for them. For her teachers and classroom assistant I knit these circular scarfs using a free pattern which can be found at Hand Knitted Things . Thank you for sharing your pattern Julia :)

Key rings were made for two more classroom assistants.

This tea cosy and egg cosies were made for friends. The tea cosy was knitted using a pattern from the book Kirstie's Homemade Home and it can also be purchased from Ravelry - Kirstie's Tea & Egg Cosies by Suzie Johnson. I only used the pattern for the main body of the cosy and made up the rest as I went along. For the egg cosies, I just used an egg cup for size and started to knit until I was happy with it.

Lovely work, handmade gifts are always so much more special. I really like the scarfs and the keyrings but my favourite is the tea and egg cosies set.
