I am in denial about the whole Christmas-is-over thing, as is evidenced by the tree still standing in my living room and my husband's recliner still hiding out in the laundry room (we move The Man Chair every year to make room for the tree). I suppose that if I am ever to get fully into two-thousand-and-ten, I should let you see the Christmas presents, huh?
This post will contain only some, as many have not yet been photographed. I'm hoping to do that tomorrow.
Here are two little knitted friends that went to my nephews in Indiana. We have Bean the Bunny (he's just the sort of bean a little boy ought to like) and Beary McTweed, H.E. The H.E. stands for Honey Expert. That's a very advanced degree from Bearing College. I finished Beary at the very last minute, in the dark, on the night he had to be boxed up for shipping, so we had a very rushed photo shoot.
Dear Beary, I am so sorry that your nose is out of focus in this otherwise adorable photo of you and your friend Bean. Next time, I will be more careful.
Both of them are made with patterns by Ysolda Teague - Sophie (bunny) and Otto (bear).
Also made for the youngest nephew was an Aviatrix hat that matched Bean the Bunny, which can be seen in the photo below,
and a Super Gavin set for the older nephew - the reversible cape (with a logo designed by Chris) was made using this tutorial and the mask was based on this one.
And to make sure that my photography class didn't go to waste, I took pictures of my kids to hand out as Christmas presents to grandmas and nanas and great-grandmas and such.
Here's the photo of my two young'uns that I sent up north to my hubby's family:
And here are the photos I took of my two kids with their kid nephew for my mom and her mom and my aunt and...well, the rest of us too:
I think that's a good start for now. G'night!
