I knit up a pair of wristwarmers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts using an oddball skein of Noro Cash Iroha in one night while catching up on Mad Men. Such a satisfyingly quick knit. Not sure whose they will become. They will most likely be thrown in the gift drawer. And so one Christmas knit has been achieved, and I can resume knitting my sweater of which I have the front and back and a partial sleeve completed already. It's coming along swimmingly.
And I'm not the only one handcrafting around here. The Bee got a fairy doll making kit for her birthday, and she also got a lot of help making the fairy doll. It's so pretty and sweet and sparkly in all the right places.
