So Christmas day came and went, and it was good. A nice and calm Christmas, no drama, it was great :). I made one of my younger brothers a dammit doll and he loved it! My family got a good laugh out of it.
The only slight disappointment was the gift I spend a few weeks working on for one of my friends. I knit her a whole set from one of Claire Crompton's books: a scarf, hat and fingerless gloves, only to find out she'll be moving to Texas in a few weeks! Jajaja. I gave it to her anyway, that's what happens for having spontaneous and adventurous friends.

Alright so here's what I have recently found out, and trust me I am shocked that it took this long, but I have been knitting wrong the whole time! Literally! My knit stitches are all wrong! And where did I figure this wonderful fact out? While knitting a Christmas gift of course! You can tell in the picture where I begain knitting "correctly".
I was always taught that the knit stitch was done through the back of the loop, but nope it's through the front of the loop! No wonder my stitches never looked quite the same. Oh well, lesson learned. :(
On a diff note, I sewed up some quick Christmas Stockings from old sweaters I bought from our local second hand store. They're pretty cute :D, for my first try that is.
