Gift's for the Little One's

I Finished up gifts for the niece's today. Little zippered pouches with something special for each girl ... a nail kit for the oldest, who I noticed at Thanksgiving has the longest prettiest nails I've seen in a long time! Another for hair things. And for the youngest, colored pencils, markers and crayons. I sure hope they like their new personal pouches!

Knitting More Gifts

My First pair of Socks. I think I did pretty well these are for my oldest daughter who asked for a pair last Christmas and I finally got the nerve up to try out a pattern And something special for a special Client. A "Luxe Neck Warmer" from this book . I made lots of these last Christmas and just love them because they knit up so quickly.

And sooo many more things to get done in the next few days.
What are you making for the holidays?
