I must have been a very good girl over the last year because I was given some very nice presents this Christmas. Of course, a lot of them were craft themed.
The big one was this Tom Bihn Swift knitting bag. This bag was designed in conjuction with Knitty readers to be just what knitters want in a bag. It is study, has see-thru pockets inside and o-rings to clip in yarn stuff sack (which also have clear bottoms so you can see the yarn.
Of course there were also lots of books.
I really want to dive into the first one make myself a beaded cardigan. I love embroidering so the addition of beads will be fun. The second one is really interesting, I always love learning new sewing techniques.
I struggled quite a bit with free-motion quilting on my first quilt. I hope this book will teach me some tricks to try it again. And this last one should help me with that New Year’s resolution to take my crochet beyond the granny square.
Finally, I received a pair of crochet hooks from Polka Dot Cottage (apparently Santa reads this blog). Aren’t they lovely!
What sort of crafty goodness did you receive this holiday season?
