A little bit of knitting and crochet

When my children were at school every Xmas time I would make little gifts for all the children in each of their classes. So that meant I made up to 60 gifts. Yes, they had to be quick, easy , cute & fun. Also suitable for boys & girls.
Now one grandson has started school I thought I would try and do it for him so he could learn to give each year.
Out came my old little patterns I have tried.

KNITTING TIME
Cute knitted bells for the tree and little stockings to hang. I sometimes add a little bell in the middle so it tinkles.
Just need to buy some life saver lollies ( or something similar ) to fill the stocking.
These go down really well.

CROCHET TIME.
Well, I was enjoying myself so much I thought I'd try another pattern of my sons blanket my mum had made for him.
It is great for baby blankets.
Can you see the rows of cats with their paws hanging over the edge.
It really is a cute blanket and very easy to make......

I kept myself very busy while I was away enjoying my time with daughter & grandsons.
Happy to be home to my own bed though.
