Homemade Goodies Round Up, Part I

Some homemade holiday gifities: While I’m still learning to actually read a pattern, I’ve been really enjoying crocheting.  Just simple things, but I think they came out pretty cute.

I made a bunch of fingerless gloves– Big ones, for the Mister’s Dad:

And several little ones, for smaller hands:

Those striped ones are for a certain little guy, who just became shy about wearing his favorite color pink to school. (Which makes me sad, but that’s a whole other story.)

And a wavy scarf for the mister’s mother:

I wanted to make more of these felt letter ornaments, but I left if to the last minute and ended up only whipping up a few.

They were so easy, and I really liked how they came out.  I wish I had made more of them. Next year!

I did end up making those mini meringues, but I chickened out on the marshmallows.  

(But my mom and I must have been on the same wavelength, cause she made a few batches.  So I got to snack on hers!  Marshmallows melting in coffee= yum! Who knew? )  If you haven’t ever made meringues, I recommend it– they were so easy! 

Here are the goodies all packaged up– meringues, cookies, coconut macaroons, and some Trader Joe’s Hot Chocolate. 

I’m still gathering up the names of all the sellers I bought wonderful things from this season.  I’ll post about them tomorrow!
