As you know by now, it wouldn’t be Christmas if I didn’t make things for people. This year my co-workers mostly felt the fury of my crafty storm.

The bosses got the results of my canning:
From the top that’s marmalade, rosemary-peach jam, and green tomato chutney.

My work friends got coin purses…

…with contrasting linings!

I did knit something, too: my dad has said several times that he’s always wanted a chullo hat. Since I did not get the gene that just wants something and doesn’t buy it, I couldn’t fathom waiting years and years for a hat and decided it was time to make one for him. So I did:
It’s baby alpaca and there are alpacas in the design–douple pacas!

And now I’m going back to sewing for me, I think.
