Well, the holidays are getting closer and closer every day…I’ve been working on getting some things made for gifts – while still using up my stash of yarn. I do however have a confession to make. I cheated a little on my vow not to purchase any other yarns. I purchased the required thread (which technically is not yarn – that’s why we call it thread…I’m grasping here, I know.) for the Ice Princess necklace I want to make for my sister. I do have plain wite thread – and while that would have worked, I want the one I’m making my sister to have that bit of sparkle.

I’m still working through my stash here though – I’ve been making slippers for the guys in my family from Bev’s Country Cottage. I’ve had to make some adjustments, but the pattern is so simple it’s been no problem.

I also made one of the head bands I wrote about in my “Kickin’ Stash” post. The first one I gave to my friend Shelly – now she wants one in every color. I’ll do my best with that, and make them for her for Christmas 🙂

I have one more slipper to make then I will have 3 pairs completed and 4 to go. I’m working on the necklace after this last pair though, it’s time for a change of pace.
