Back in the summer my kind aunt gave me a bunch of yarn made from her alpacas and asked only for a scarf out of it (there was tons more than what was needed for a scarf). I made her this one, and I love the pattern. It has a nice lacey feel and can be found here or at ravelry). It crocheted up really easily.
And then I did this little embroidery for Mike's daughter Melissa for her birthday. She loved the one I made for her sister Michelle and asked for one too. I think I need to branch out in my embroidery stitches though!
Hope you enjoyed some handmade gifting this Christmas season!
