Yarn Along

Santa's workshop is working overtime! Here are some last minute creations for Christmas.

This squirrel was so much fun to make. The tail especially had me giggling as I cut the loops of yarn and saw how incredibly puffy it was turning out. I know my little nephew will be just as tickled. The pattern can be found in Linda's Mama4Earth Etsy shop, and the acorn pattern was a freebie on her blog Natural Suburbia.

I found this shawlette on Lisa's blog OhMyGoodknits. Her pattern can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. I have to say, it was nice to put down the knitting needles and crochet for a day. My knitting muscles were getting sore! It was a quick project with beautiful results, and I hope to make at least one more before Christmas.
There's one other little WIP sitting here, but I'll let that be a surprise. :) The book I'm not necessarily reading but hoping to crack open this week is The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. Something fun to read over Christmas when all the gift making is complete. :)
