So I the professional procrastinator decided about 5 or 6 days before Christmas that I was going to knit the 3 wonderful girls I work with each a neck shawlette, and knit my parents, my brother and his girlfriend, my niece and my daughter all slippers too! Not just any slippers but the ugliest slippers I could come up with....that kind of backfired though, as they all looked pretty good! I also got this insane I dea to design and make custom tshirts for the guys I work with who are a worship pastor, a youth pastor and a media pastor. The tshirts are not knit of course but I will include a pic because they turned out super cute! I also knit up a baby sweater for the youth pastors new baby boy born in November, but I started it in November Wink

Ok first off is a couple shots of the shawlettes, I made 3, pink shimmer, a purple and blue hand paint yarn, and a black tweed self stripping yarn.





Here are a couple slipper shots. I mixed patterns together and also just made them up as I went. Yarn used was wool scraps that I had leftover. You can see my 4 yr old niece's in the group shot, I made the elf slippers from Weekend Knits. Super cute!





Our youth pastor and his wife had a new baby boy in November and I knit them a sweater for their first two baby boys so of course this baby gets one too so here it is:



Ok here are the tshirts. They all say Priceless and each guys title Smiley

I can't believe you did so much in the week before Christmas! Very nice shawlettes. I especially like the purple one.

How did you make the t-shirts? Heat transfer? Those are pretty cool. Good job!
