I felt something

I’m typically always late with presents. Last Christmas was no different. Couple of weeks before Christmas I realised that there’s only couple of weeks before Christmas – and nothing ready. That’s when I usually spring into action. I grabbed my felting yarn and needles and knitted some quick and easy presents: potholders. I know they are a bit lame among fancy and expensive presents, such as new phones and cameras and such, but I can’t afford such presents. At least these are handmade and they come in handy in the kitchen.

The square potholders are knitted from corner to corner. Here is the pattern.

The star pattern is here. I used single yarn for the smaller one and double for the bigger one.

And the knobbly one can be made according to these instructions.

Apologies for the terrible quality of the pictures. Like I said, I was already very late with these and had no time to spare to get decent pictures. It’s the darkest time of the year too, but I’m sure you can see the idea.

I knitted some very, very tall socks. They go as far as the legs do. If only I had garters but I don’t and hence I used safety pins to keep the socks in place. Luckily I had tights underneath to pin the safety pins to. This was earlier in the winter when it wasn’t quite as cold as it is now. I would not go out wearing just tights and tall socks right now. Not even socks as tall as these.

If you want to make your own, the pattern can be found here.
