Knitting & Sewing From Over The Holidays

The holidays are always a busy time for me. I'm not only planning and going to family gatherings, but I'm also busy making gifts. I try to make as much stuff as possible. This year with the new baby in the house I didn't get nearly enough time to make as much as I wanted. But, I did manage to do a few things. Below are some Xmas gifts that I made as well as a few things that I did after Xmas.
Little One Layete Xmas Eve jammies for Cael.
Emma nightshirt and Ottobre leggings for Ali for Xmas Eve.
Emma nightshirt and Ottobre leggings for Ray for Xmas Eve.
Action shot of the outfits on the kids.

Nola slippers for my dad for his birthday that was in November. I did finish both, but I didn't get a photo of it before I gifted it.
Nola slippers for my mother in law. She loved them. They may look "granny like" but they are sooo comfy. I'm planning on making some for myself and family.
Bright orange legwarmers for Ray. I also made a pair in bright blue for Ali, but I can't find a photo of those. Will have to take one!
Professor vest for the boy. It fits him better now as it was a bit big in the photo above.

Shawllette for my mom. This one took a while. It's made with a silk blend yarn that was sooo yummy to work with.
These were finished after the holidays. Jungle Gym overalls made with scraps of wool yarns. No buttons yet and it hasn't been blocked. There is plenty of room to grow.
Avaitrix hat. Love love Love this hat. Made it with malabrigo which is the soft wool yarn I've ever felt. I made this in November but it still fits him now.
I also made two Jayne hats (no pics but I will take some). One for my dad for Xmas and one for me. I also made two shawls on my knitting machine. I'm sure I've left something else out. But, I can't think of it now.

Hey Brynn, You know I just love my shawlette. The silk is so soft. You are such an amazing mother, wife and daughter.
