1. A BIT OF SEWING

In November I made a couple of ring slings for the Playful Tot and my daughter.
Patterns I made this year were by Deer and Doe, By Hand London, Colette patterns.

I mention the Raglan Pocket Dress and Minimalist Dress by Brindille et Twig.

2. A BIT OF KNITTING

2.a Finished
Finished projects for 2014.
Manteau de Lutin, AKA Lavanda jacket by Elena Nodel, for my daughter. I made the long, hooded version, in size 4 Y. The yarn is Basic Sport by Katia.
Snappy Hat by Corinna Ferguson. Out of Online Divano.

Bluebirds of Happiness: 1 one for our tree out of leftover red yarn and 2 out of Soft Payette for my sister and my friend Sylvie.

2.b In Progress
Cardigan out of my handspun for SPAKAL: Metro by Connie Chang Chinchio.

2.c Future Projects

– Lenny by Heidi Atwood-Reeves for my daughter, out of Countess Ablaze BFL Aran in Radioactive Raspberry.
– Cardigan for me, OR for both me and my daughter, out of the Surnaturelle yarn that I got from La Droguerie for Christmas.
I am considering making Alecia Beth by Justyna Lorkowska.
I mention the crocheted pullover I made out of the same yarn, and the Vitamin D cardigan.

3. A BIT OF SPINNING

– I finished spinning The Fifth Queen, out of the Catherine Howard fibre blend by Hilltop Cloud.
– Jacey Boggs Faulkner’s Craftsy Class: Drafting from Worsted to Woolen is an excellent new ressource if you’re learning how to spin.
– I have been spinning a merino braid from Countess Ablaze in Northern Lights.

4. SOMETHING SEASONAL, SOMETHING NATURAL

My daughter and I created salt dough ornaments for our tree, for a simple, fun, and hassle-free Christmas season.
