Handmade Holiday Madness

We're still alive - just buried under the millions of projects and gifts I'm trying to finish for Christmas. Most of which I can't share here until they are gifted! I've got a few household projects that I can share, I just need to take pictures of them. But for now, Ben's Christmas vest. It is adorable. I am convinced that there is nothing cuter than little boys in knitted vests. I'm very glad this pattern goes up to a size 6! :)

Also, in the spirit of handmade, a question. If you are making handmade gifts for your family and friends, do you also feel compelled to also buy them something? So often I am stuck thinking that what I made isn't 'enough.' Thoughts?

  1. Love the vest! What is the pattern? And yeah, I totally feel like I have to buy something unless what I make is enormous, like an afghan or quilt or sweater or something. But if it is smallish, like hat/mittens/scarf/socks, I never feel it's "enough."
