YOP Week 4

on July 29, 2013


I actually had two finishes this week! Count them, one, two! So excited! I just love the rush of a finish!

My first finish was a gift. A pair of fingerless Iron Man mitts. I tell you what, based on the reaction I got, the recipient loved them! I can’t even explain the feeling when someone reacts that way to something you have made. It makes the time and effort all worth it!

My other finish was a skirt for my 2 year old. It turned out adorable! I love it and can’t wait to see her in it. I have to make another one for my 1 year old before that can happen though. Can’t give one a gift without the other, you know! Don’t worry, you will get some action shots of the skirts on the models as soon as number 2 is finished.

I have made some changes yet again to my list. There were a couple of things on there that I have taken off and also added a couple of things for the girls and a Christmas gift I have started on. Yes, you read that right, starting on gifts for Christmas already. I hate to feel rushed and be completing a project at the last minute so I am getting a BIG head start on this one!

I hope that everyone had a fun weekend full of family and crafting!

Have a happy, hectic, handmade day!

    Just love the ironmand mitts and having young boys myself I can just imagine the reaction ! It is very satisfying isn’t it. Love the skirt when you blogged about it last week and can’t wait to see it on. I think my girls would love this and your so right you can’t give to one without the other. I’ve started on Christmas gifts as my list as usual is long long and long and like you hate being rushed although I always am lol

  2. The iron man mitts look great, I bet there was one happy recipient, I would be thrilled 😛 And the skirt is very cute!

    Love the Iron Man Gloves! I totally featured them as part of my Avengers Knitting page. So glad to see them in action and to hear that they were such a hit! http://www.knitluck.com/avengers-knitting-hulk-thor-and-iron-man
