Some Christmas Makes

I can now show you some of the projects I was working on for Christmas.

Firstly there is this knitted 'Peruvian' bag I made for Eve as part of a little package with the theme of Peru.
It is a modified version of a pattern by Berroco Design team and is available for free here.

For Grace I was working with a theme of Venice and so I made her a crocheted carnival mask.

The basic mask pattern is by Priscilla Hewitt and is a free pattern (at the time of writing this, the relevant web page isn't available - so I'll see if I can get it later).

I also made a lion for Grace.

This is another free pattern, this time from Lion Brand. It is called a sock critter. The clue was in the title! I should have realised before I picked up the needles that it would be knitted in the round! Nevertheless I persevered with my double pointed needles and the benefit at the end is no seaming. Having said that knitting on straight needles is so much faster even if there is sewing up at the end. The pattern can be found here. There are plenty more of these sock critters if you enjoy knitting in the round.

I've still got a few more projects from Christmas to show you - I'll save those for next time.
