Emily's Rock Star


Jerry is my rock star!
Originally uploaded by CreativeExile.

So, all you slackers who didn't come to Knit In last night because you had more important things to do (holidays? what holidays?!) missed the grand reincarnation of JERRY GARCIA in all his perfect grey-haired, pot-bellied glory! Mmm, squeezably soft, too!

Of course, he was without legs or his trademark silver glasses, but Emily reassured us that he will be complete before finding his way underneath her Dad's Christmas tree. Her felted bag turned out great, too.

And I hear Kate finished the Flying Spaghetti Monster! Way to go!!

Knitted Gift Labels and Knit-Alongs

Are you looking for some cool labels for you knitted gifts? Then check out this blog, and click on the link for knit gift labels in the "more stuff" column on the left-side. I found these labels through a holiday knit-along that I joined. It's not too late to join, or just check out all of the great gifts that people are making. Finally, I mentioned last week that I plan on joining a knit-a-long called Knit & Crochet the Classics. The idea is that each month everyone reads the same classic novel, and then knits or crochets a project that is inspired by the novel. I'm going to join in January, and we will be reading Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolfe. Anyway, I hope you all have a happy holiday and find some quality knitting time.
