Happy Days Everyone!

Hope you all had a happy and safe holiday. We are still seeing lots of snow here in Beautiful British Columbia! We are all well, family is real issues... except for some work glitches. I almost slid into a median trying to get to work on Friday, and promptly went home!
I was very spoiled iand I was the recipient of fantastic boots, books and a new table top easel. Also two knitting related gifts.......

My brother MADE ME two niddy noddys!!! YAY now I can get to that sweater recycling!

Seriously, he said that he couldn't find them to buy so he googled plans and made them! How happy it make me that my gift was HANDMADE!

And my sister got me this great book which I am so excited to have! Knitalong!

So a bit of an update on gift knitting!

I am happy to say that this secret project happend to find it's new owner safe and sound.....

yes another of the fantastic clogs. Made for a special friend.

A full picture of my sister's mitts. This was a pattern adaptation for the Endpaper Mitts.

Unfortunatally she doesn't have a blog, so I can't link anything except Ravelry stuff. They are fantastic though.

Mitts for my Mom, not done in time... but I did show her them in progress, and she approved! LOL

Yes I am on to more projects, but I can't share I still have a secret gift swap coming up and that must stay under wraps. I am working through pretty quick though, and I hope that I can share more FO's soon! Have you heard about the 100 skein challenge for 2009? I am considering it.... who knows. The only problem is the mitts don't actually use up a whole ball!! LOL
Happy creating!

Love the mitts. My knitty knoddy's look like yours. Chris had a photo stand made from these and I said "Oh! That'll work." and sure enough it did!

The mittens are beau-ti-ful. I love them.

The niddy-noddys (noddies?) are fantastic. Are they made of pvc pipe? How cool that they are handmade!
