Holiday Gift Round-Up, Part 2

Happy New Year! I can't believe it's 2014. The holiday season whizzed by and I am not sure I'm ready to embark on a new year just yet - but it's here whether I like it or not!

In fact, I am still processing the holidays: I felt more than a little spoiled by my friends and family. As I get older, I can honestly say that my focus on the holidays isn't on what gifts I'll be getting, but rather, giving gifts and spending time with family (and friends!). That's not to say I don't enjoy receiving gifts, of course - who doesn't?! In fact, I received many thoughtful, useful, and all-around awesome gifts this year, and I thought I'd share some of the fiber-related ones on today's post:
Mollie Makes Crochet: Tons of great projects to make for the home! 
50 Yards of Fun by Rebecca Danger - all the better to continue the theme for 2014! 
Scarf Organizer: I've been trying to find a good way to store all of my scarves and shawls so that A. I have easy access and B. they don't become cat beds. I was excited to get this handy little doodad to try out!
Hot water bottle & cozy by my knitting pal Lauren!
Tyler gave me a WEBS gift card (I'll be sharing my purchases when they arrive, of course!) and Lauren also knitted me a Christmas Tree ornament - check out the real wood tree trunk! 
Hadaki Millipede Tote - I've coveted this particular bag at just about every TNNA trade show I've attended. While I love my Namaste messenger bag, I really need to have a lighter everyday bag. This bag has lots of zippy compartments and, despite its smaller size, it still fits all my essentials along with a small project for on-the-go knitting!
Meanwhile, no trip to Kansas City would be complete without a trip to The Studio. I happened to have a gift card, so I came home with some lovely skeins of yarn for future toy-making endeavors. I also bought a tape measure since a few of mine have disappeared recently.

All in all, 2013 ended on quite the high note and I am looking forward to a fibery and craft-filled 2014. TI will be returning to my regular blogging schedule this Friday, so I hope to see you back here. Wishing you a very happy and healthy new year. Thanks for joining me!
