Take your wombat toes every day to keep the crazy away

Hey you guys! Long time no see. Sorry it's been so long, but I've had a bad month. I've had those headaches for a while, and they were really bad until like, a week ago. Then I got sick. We went to this thing called Jingle Ball on Wednesday, and stood outside in like for almost 4 hours. That was a mistake. So got either bronchitis or pneumonia. So I went to the doctor and he gave me antibiotics. Which made me feel worse at first, but I'm feeling better now, even though my cough started to come back. I also think it helped with the headaches. Or I would if I didn't have a headache right now... lol anyway, enough whining, eh? Want to see some things I've made in the past... month?? Holy crap. Lots of stuff to share. Where to start...

First of all, I did a test knit for my friend Tracy of her fingerless gloves "Twist of Elegance."

The yarn is knit picks swish dk in Jade and Grain heather, I used a size 4 circular and did them with magic loop. I love these, a lot, but they're a little too small for me. Soooo I decided to send them to my secret santa partner! I'm sending that out tomorrow. Yeah, it was supposed to go out a while ago but... come on guys, I've been sick, give me a break. :) Anyway... To send off with these I decided to make a tiny turtle! Omg I am in love with him. My secret santa had better be glad I like her a lot because he almost didn't get sent out.

Isn't he so cute! I went down a needle size to get him right. He's so imperfect. His legs are all wonky, and not even with each other, his head is crooked... but I love him anyway.

I actually had to manipulate his legs to get him to stand up right, cause he's a little head heavy.

I also finished Emmy's elephant... except... well... I lost his head. *sad face* So... here's his body!

And... yeah... that's just really sad. I think I'm going to have to suck it up and make a new head. Which is a weird sentence.

I also made my sister in laws both Christmas presents. One is a stripey hat...

Pattern out of my head. I used this tutorial for jogless stripes.

I also wanted to talk about my swap package I got but... next time? Also next time, the other SIL's present, my nephew's socks, other nephews fingerless gloves... yup, there's catchin up to do. :)
