Where the fuck are the pompoms? I want to steal pompoms.
My team at work is embroiled in some sort of dramatic Christmas decorating contest with another team. There are big plans afoot, but the only thing I’m really excited about is that on the day of the judging we’re going to make everyone at work cocoa and peppermint tea and such while wearing ugly Christmas sweaters and goofy elf hats. Miss Roxie there is making sure that hat she’s on will be warm enough by adding a layer of fur.
I’m going to save photos of the finished hats for when all ~20 are done. X.x
This is the pattern I used for the Aunt Margaret’s scarf!
I don’t have a photo of the finished product, but there’s a progress photo here.
I can’t figure out how to make the tentacles curl one way one on side and the other way on the other. Ugh. It always wants to go the same direction.
The person who made the hat I’m basing mine off of managed it, so I’m sure there’s a way and I just need to find it.
This is how I made the blanket for my boyfriend’s mom! I couldn’t get a good photo of the finished project, though. Booooo! And of course I deleted the pic below from my phone after posting to Instagram, lol.
I have no photos right now, largely because I’m drinking and watching Penny Dreadful with a cat on my lap. The big red blanket is done, the maiden aunt scarf is done, the angel for grandma is done, and we got the sister a super cute pajama onesie in mid-October.
Sean gets to handle the menfolk. Which is why we are totally unprepared for them.
I’m planning to spend much of the afternoon/evening with a friend and have been trying to make her a scarf, but my cat is an asshole so it’s not been a productive evening, lol. Hopefully I’ll have good updates before Christmas Day.
I’m making Christmas gifts, still. The red blanket needs me to go buy more yarn (and it’s almost as bright as that photo, but my boyfriend assures me it’s his mom’s favorite color) and the scarf is for his aunt. Who is super religious. His maiden aunt. Very religious and never married kind of maiden aunt. So it makes it funnier to work on it while watching two dudes make out.
Gotta admit, though… I messed up some stitches while I was paying more attention to Netflix than the scarf.
