I started the season with an amigurumi tree ornament set. They were not on the tree for long, for the most part they could be found in the kids beds or their fists. I am not putting them away yet. They’re still being loved on and I love that.
When I asked my 2 year old what she wanted for Christmas, she was very sure she wanted me to make her a kitty. She never changed her mind… and she kept asking about it. She was very pleased (and so was I) with the way it turned out.
When I asked my 4 year old what he wanted, he took a long time to decide. We looked through lots of toy patterns on Ravelry together and finally he decided on a very specific giraffe. I like this little guy.
The kids got new hats and their dolls got hats to match.
I also made my husband a new hat.
All these projects were really satisfying because they were quick, I resolved my long lived issue with crochet, and it was all made with yarn I had on hand. Yay for stashbusting!
