Stitching Santa – The Knitting One – On Its Way

As I have done for the past two years, I joined in with Sheila of Sewchet’s Stitching Santa – both the sewing one and the knitting one – you can’t have too much of a good thing.

This cute enamel pin is the thing I spent most of my budget on.

This knitted neck warmer I made while over in the U.K. recently looking after Mum.

I made this little drawstring bag to keep knitting bits and pieces in

such as these wooden stitch markers…….

…….some cute wooden sheep buttons and a couple of other bits I forgot to photograph :/

Oh, there they are in the next photo of the skeins of slubby linen wool in a fetching shade of lilac.

……and a couple of crocheted coasters which I didn’t make myself so can’t take the credit for those delicate rounds.

Once again I had fun putting my packages together and hope my swap partner will be happy with what I chose.

Thanks to Sheila for organising us all once again.

    Such pretty, delicate coasters. I do admire anyone who can produce things like that. I just discovered French crochet designer Sophie Digard, who makes the most wonderful scarves, bags, jewellery, etc. She has no website, blog or IG presence, but there are a lot of Pinterest pins of her stuff – I had to start a board so I could drool over them at leisure. Almost – almost – enough to make me take up crochet….

      Wow! Beautiful work. I will let you know if I ever progress to anything so delicate but I am doubtful.

        I think that’s probably true of most people… I just love her use of colour.

    Another lovely package for another lucky recipient! Loving those sheep stitch markers πŸ™‚

      I thought you might.

        And yet you’ve sent them to someone else πŸ˜₯

        I’ll see if I can whittle another couple πŸ˜‰

    Lots of fabulous things… and another lovely drawstring bag. I’m sure whoever receives them will be delighted. I’m really enjoying seeing all these things that are winging their way to recipients who have no idea what to expect.

    Those are lovely! What a lucky recipient. Got yours today and trying so hard not to look at your post or read your letter as saving it to open on Christmas πŸ™‚

      Oops! I shouldn’t have put my name on the gift tag should I? Be strong and don’t look.

    Oh lucky lucky lady.

    Lovely gifts one and all.

    It looks like a lovely, lovely package! Maybe I will get to do it again next year. I missed this year because of school. No time to read blogs and then it was too late to sign up.

      Shame you missed out this time – you do love a mail call – but there’s always next year πŸ™‚

    Someone is getting a package of wonderful goodies!

    • #17 by tialys on December 20, 2017 - 09:04

      I love thinking of what to put in these Stitching Santa parcels.

    I really love that neck warmer and am thinking of treating myself. Would love to know where you found the pattern? x

    Great goodies. How pretty and delicate are those coasters. As for the stitch markers, I’d thought: earrings!

    Hi Lynn, I looked for an email so that I could contact you direct but I can’t find one, never mind. I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful parcel of gifts, I love everything that you sent and feel thoroughly spoilt. It was a lovely surprise when I opened up the parcel yesterday. I haven’t come across your blog before so I’ve just had a quick read back through your previous posts but will sit and have a proper read when I have more time. I just wanted to say that I’m very sorry to read about your mum, it’s terribly sad to lose someone we love, especially someone so close, but doubly hard at this time of year. I do hope that Christmas wasn’t too sad for you and that you’ve been able to remember your mum with a smile, though it’s very early days and I know you’ll be missing her. Thanks again for the lovely parcel, I’ll be writing a post about it and putting it on my blog tomorrow. Jo. xx

      Hello Jo – I’m so pleased you like your parcel and thank you for your kind thoughts. x

    Those little sheep are just adorable! I love the little bags you make, and right now while temps are barely above freezing, that neck warmer looks especially fabulous! Happy New Year, Lynn!

      I had to make a second neck warmer for my sister when she saw this one. I do enjoy a bit of cable knitting and this was a good excuse to indulge in some that doesn’t take too long to complete.

    Such a lovely gift!

    Love your neck warmer. I saw some similar wool in Hobbycraft and wondered what it would look like. I might have to go back and get some!

      I was lucky because a friend of mine had bought enough of this wool to make a poncho – she’s not really a knitter and never got started with it so gave me the whole lot. I think it’s called ‘Pampas’ by Wendy, it’s Superchunky weight and I only used one ball. I suppose I ought to knit her one really πŸ˜‰
