On and Off My Needles

My needles have been busy recently with sewing and knitting.  At the Curious Handmade Retreat in October I purchased some lovely, soft, squishy Tundra from The Fibre Co. and as soon as I returned home I cast on Helen's Sonder Shawl.
This shawl is the final design in the Shawl Society and was a delight to knit and very quick to complete.
I am now knitting the previous shawl design, the Aurorae.
I have been stitching some winter/Christmas project bags.

I have also completed the November Belle and Bright Kit, which is a candle mat. 
 I have used my own design and lightly quilted the mat using French knots.
I have also made a couple of gingerbread men for my children's Christmas trees.
New projects on my needles include Helen's Alpine Sunset Shawl and a Hitchhiker Shawl, plus I am stitching some felt reindeer decorations.

Lots and lots of lovelies. Gorgeous red shawl!!! You have been busy. I do like the gingerbread men. They look quite easy to make in other words I think I could even make them. Have you got the pattern or webpage link?

keep well

Hi Amanda, sorry I don't have a pattern for them. You could try drawing around a gingerbread man cookie cutter. Merry Christmas to you & your family. xx
