Good afternoon. How’s your weekend been? Ours has been low-key: sleeping in and wrapping family gifts; Jellybean and I wrapped nine, Christmas gifts and two, birthday ones Saturday. Earlier this late morning she and I went to Michael’s to use its big coupon since she had to pick up a gift for Secret Santa that her and her friends are doing and a Christmas gift for one of the neighbor’s kids.
It’s the second, advent Sunday for those of us participating in Knit Equals Joy’s 2018 Mini Advent Swap. This was the theme: Dec 9 – A handmade ornament (Knitted, sewn, etc)
I had trouble with this one because the pattern I was using didn’t yield the results I had wanted or expected. I spent time on Ravelry browsing patterns and then looked on Pinterest. I was going to make some pom-pom gnomes but then I decided to make these mini mittens for Missy.
Pattern: Mini Mittens Ornament by Keya Kuhn
Yarn: Nomadic Yarns Twisty Sock in Harry
You will probably recognize this yarn from my Yer a Wizard, Harry. I used this yarn because it isn’t Christmas without Harry Potter.
I received this sweet gift from Paula:
I was very touched by the angel component. This is something I have never seen nor heard about before. I’m assuming she knitted the sock as I see the split for the heel and realize why she gave me a mini package of Eucalan.
Before I go, I just want to say thank you all for your supporting thoughts. Reading your comments uplifted my day. And thank you also for taking the time to vote too on Friday’s sock post. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. TTYS.
