more FOs

Just in case I sound all happy about my low-gift ratio, I should point out it also had something to do with Rudder having gotten me few stocking things and no Santa gifts. I had so ridiculously many little gifts for him I gave some to other relatives and even wrapped up some peppermint bark (yum) and a mini zero fog blaster for myself - so I did have a coupl ecool things to unwrap. And Rudder's been playing with the fog blaster ever since, incidentally.

Me? Bitter?

Anyway, in happier news, here's the obligatory tree photo:

and not one but two finished objects:

First, a mini-Weasley sweater (top-down seamless raglan). The body is about as long as my finger and I'm still debating whether to duplicate-stitch an initial on it. I'll have to check whether Molly Weasley put initials on all her sweaters or only Fred's and George's.

And next, the poncho, with front and back views. Lots and lots of mistakes, as you can see, but at least it was a good learning experience.

Each photo was niftier than the last. Until Alex was in his teens and started buying us presents there were years when I had nothing to unwrap and I always have an empty stocking. I'd have a new stereo in my car, but not even a CD under the tree. It stinks. Btw, the bonfire sounded lovely. ~:A

I *think* Molly also put letters on Harry's and Ron's sweaters, but am not entirely sure.

Merry Christmas!

Love the poncho! Is it flat -- to be attached after you pull it around the shoulders -- or is it permanently attached in front? *** As soon as I can get my eyesight under control, I intend to start knitting/crocheting again. (Of course, the road to hell....)
