on Saturday morning I officially started my X-Mas shopping this season .. I mean real shopping, which means I actually went to the stores to browse and purchase things (online shopping started weeks ago ;-) I usually despair during these outings, because either I never find what I had planned or I get stressed with all the crowds and confusion which are normal during this season. But this time it actually went well ... not a lot of people, and I managed to buy all I wanted for my never-know-what-to-get-them uncles and aunts.
The rest of the weekend was very crafty - I'm really trying hard to finish all orders quickly and at the same time find time to do some of my own presents ... I did finish the pair of fingerless gloves in pink I was knitting, and added a small rosette on the side to make it a bit more feminine ...
... started and finished the first of many to come crocheted hats, from this pattern I wanted to experiment for quite some time now.
and started a couple of other X-Mas gifts, a restigouche scarf in two tones of pink mohair, and a pair of mitaines in striped blue (both patterns from Marie)
