In the nick of time

Are the holidays coming too fast for anyone else other than just me?  The calendar is tick tocking and I am working to get it all done in time.  Presents, decorations and meals to be made as well as memories.

I won’t get to see my parents this year which is so sad but at the same time my Momma is going home to NYC so I couldn’t be happier for her.  Today I sent her present knowing that today is the cutoff for Christmas delivery.  I had mentioned her gift here and it was almost done.  I finished it the next day and then put it away and forgot about the buttons until this morning when it had to be out the door.

It’s my own pattern.  I understand it, but I am not sure others would.  I have written hundreds of crochet patterns which I sold on Etsy for four years but knitting patterns seem so different to me.  The wooden buttons are super duper easy.  The next time I will buff and polish them and perhaps distress them a bit but like I said, it was done just in the nick of time.

I can safely post these pictures here because even though I warned my Momma in the last post about this hat, to stop reading, she didn’t.  Not only did she read it but she even left me a comment to let me know she had.  She is naughty that woman!!  I love her!  So, Mami, if you are reading this, enjoy it and enjoy your time in New York.  No one deserves it more than you.

I’ll be back tomorrow to show you how to make the wooden buttons at my Stash Bash and if you have a project you have made from your stash of materials, come back here tomorrow and share it with everyone.

Yarning along again this week.  Hope you are meeting your Christmas craft goals.
