Can yarnies do other crafts? What happens when glitter slams into yarn? Are dinasaur bandaides appropriate for papercuts? These are the questions that came to mind when I decided to declare this Christmas handmade, recycled, but not reused as in regifting (OH NO!)

I decided to break out the glitter and go ala Crafty Chica style. I just love Kathy's work and her great spirit. If you have not seen her work -DOOO visit her website and enjoy the craftyness. This year I made some handmade ornaments for friends and customized them by cutting out colors, designs, animals and words that reminded me of them gluing them to a plain glass ornament. I added glittter, modpodge, and some cheap hairspray to seal the glitter and yarn bow in place...most dollar stores carry these items and you can create your collage using catalogs or magazines.

No Christmas would be complete without a warm scarf in a fun pattern to make. This pattern is the Matsuri Scarf pattern and knits up quickly. The yarn is Nuance.

Last, but not least, a 4 stranded throw made with big sticks! These needles are US size 50 (25mm) and the yarn is Jiffy by LionBrand and the pattern is a FAST Finish Throw which is a FREE pattern ;)

Well, as you can see, I have to get busy and finish my Fast Finish Throw!

Knit-Share-Gooooo HO HO HO!
