Here a few of the knitting projects I've been working at by the fire: the cream colored square will be added to a patchwork blanket I am making for Eoghan, after this square I only have two more to go, then I am going to whip stitch them all together with a blanket stitched border. I had planned on making both of the littles a blanket for Yule this year, but I am already feeling the holiday crunch. Kiera's might be a little late, luckily at 2 years old I doubt she will mind too terribly.
The grey knitting is the body to a backpack for Madeline, that will match the little felted iPhone case I just finished for her. At 17 she is less than thrilled about the idea of handmade gifts this year, but I think she will actually like and use these.
