The colors in the Moda's Figgy Pudding line are rich and warm. With a charm pack in hand, I just had to play. I'll write up a little pattern for this soon, but for now, here is a look at a WIP. The charms are in the middle with some red sashing as ribbon for the gift. White, brown and one of the Figgy Pudding prints make the borders for it. We'll see how quickly I work, but maybe it will be done by next week. The "get ready for holiday giving bug" has definitely bit me. Making things for those I love is so joyful. With the chilly are now here in the Northwest, time inside seems much more reasonable.

Since as of next Monday, I'll be on waivers as far as any right hand use is concerned, I've been wrapping up some projects. I've finished a blanket and a quilt (photos to follow this week) and have knit up a variety of things for little people I love.
Here is our Sugar Lump in one of the hats. I'm an impatient knitter, so I worked up this little hat with chunky yarn, size 11 needles and a twisted drop stitch. Super fast! I find the larger needles bother my hands less, too.
I'm hoping to get my Gail Pan Bom last block stitched this week and get a couple more things made. I'll get some photos up for fun. Hope you enjoyed a nice holiday weekend and that you're ready to greet the fall.
