this tutorial, adding lavender essential oil to make them fragrant. I think next time I'll add more. :)
Dory Shawlette for my sister. Seriously, this pattern is so quick and easy to wip up, I want to make one in every color!
this blog. Having little desire to try my hand at knitting lace, I knew I wanted to double the qiviut with something equally as decadent and warm, and what could be better than merino wool? The pattern is a simple knit 5, purl 5 which I found on Ravelry. I had made Hans the same hat last year, and wanted to make it longer this time so it could be folded further over his ears for added warmth. It seems my efforts may have been a little too exuberant, as now Hans says the hat is too warm for this unseasonally warm weather. Picky, picky!
Nobby Organics made this very special doll for us, and I couldn't be happier with how she turned out. Thank you, Daria!!

I hope your Christmas was merry and bright!
