Knit it up

Christmas 2014


A glimpse of the knitting that is being gifted this year. This is what Sundays on the couch watching football look like come December. I am pleased — especially since I had 90% of that yarn in my stash, some of which had moved back and forth across the country.

I’m only a little sorry I sold my Christmas decorations a few years ago. No tree this year — but see that quilted tree skirt at the bottom holding all these presents? Well. One year it will see its glory.

I did find this sweet nativity this year at a thrift store and immediately fell in love. Excited to build a few decorations each year.

  1. Accumulating just a few decorations over time makes it like a trip down memory lane to unpack them every year!

  2. You’re a knitting machine! I love all the colorful hats! And that nativity, what a score. Our poor set…one wise man is missing a head and another broke in half. I guess this is what happens when the nativity set is on a low shelf and you have 6 kids. haha

    Holy Cow, Kelli! You HAVE been busy. Congratulations!

  4. How fantastic — all of it!

  5. I am so impressed!! They are so beautiful! You will have to teach me how to knit one day!!

  6. WHOA. Whoa whoa whoa

  7. Nicely done! Homemade knits are the best.
    A creche is the perfect start to your Christmas collection.

  8. What a lovely hand knit holiday you’ve been crafting! It has been a couple of years since I had it together enough to have hand knits under the tree – I’m thinking I need to spend some quality time with my stash & come up with a plan for 2015!

    What a fun nativity find! In the years when I didn’t do “full on” Christmas decorating, I’ve always made sure to at least have a nativity on the mantel. My Mom collects nativities & I think I counted at around 20 that are out all year long – and yet it’s not overwhelming thanks to an awesome antique postal sorter that houses most of them.
