Holiday Knitting and Sewing

I'm still having fun with Sham's Tablecloth skirt. Here is my version in plaid wool that I've been wearing for holiday parties and shopping---I was asked at a boutique if it was Rundholz!
I needed a red sweater so decided to crochet one from the cover of the new "Crochet Today" magazine. As I've mentioned before for some things I think crochet looks trendier than knitting.
I love making holiday accessories too and put together several funky necklaces (the Nutcracker is my favorite)                                                   
Made several purses from "thrifted" sweaters     
I'm still knitting on my Christmas socks---love this yarn that changes colors to give the pattern-
Oh, and I can't forget my Christmas pajamas!
I'm already thinking about what I want to start after the first of the year for spring. Saw that Pantone's color of the year for 2012 is TANGERINE which I love!     Happy holidays to all.                                                                               


  1. Ooh, it's wonderful to see the array of things you've been making, Peggy! Of course I love the Tablecloth skirt! ;) But I love everything! That sweater is amazing! The necklaces are so much fun! (My favorite is the Nutcracker too.) Love your PJs!

    I am glad to see you are having so much fun! :D

  2. By the way, I've added your skirt to the gallery!
