...I'd be remiss if I did not mention Cristina.
Cristina, giver of the dinosaur sweater shown here (which hopefully will fit Hank this winter!), is well-versed in knitting, crochet, and sewing - an all-around crafty girl. Her sewing projects are more complicated than anything I would ever attempt, and I am way jealous that she can whip out cute Amigurumi in no time flat (it I recall correctly, a child's size tea set was made during a cross-country flight?)
For Hank's birthday, Cristina gave him a copy of Harry by the Sea and a cute crocheted version of Harry the dog. Cute in its own right, but doesn't the swoon factor zoom off the chart when you see that she also made a piece of seaweed to drape on him (in the story, Harry gets wrapped in a piece of seaweed, and people think he is a sea monster)?
As a "just because" gift for Cristina, I made her a finger pincushion.
The pattern was given to me by Barb as part of a recent package. The bottle cap was not from the container bin, but rather the bin that is used to save actual trash (well, recyclables) -- there is a difference.
Warning: These pincushions are totally addicting to make!
Favorite of the day: A-dorable grill toy
Working on: A gift for Barb (you'll never guess what it is! Oh wait...)
