Jet’s Advent Calendar

23 Dec

Hurrah and huzzah and Merry Christmas!!
Not that I am cutting things a bit fine here with it being the day before Christmas Eve and all, but I have JUST finished Jet’s advent calendar!
The good thing is that there is still one day left this year in which it can legitimately be used – but the best bit is that Jet doesn’t really know what an advent calendar is, so she doesn’t even know how ridiculously late it is – YAY!

This is my first ever knitting pattern, so I am quite pleased with myself for actually having pulled it off. The idea was adapted from something I found a while back through Google Images. Each of the lights makes a little pocket for you to put choccies or other little treats for each day of advent – CUTE!
It has been a complete mission getting it finished off as I don’t have so much time for luxuries such as knitting little whatnots these days. I am really chuffed with the results though and I am hoping that if it goes down well with the  small person, it can be one of those things that can come out year after year as a family tradition (not that I am getting slightly ahead of myself here or anything!).

Here’s some pics anyhoo:

Merry Christmas one and all – I hope you have an über-cool yule!

Much love from, Bird Face x x x

    How absolutely wonderful! LOVE the plug! I’ve got to bookmark this so I can make one, er, I mean FOUR, for next year!
    Knitting is my current love affair but I like to do all sorts of artsy-craftsy things. I got bit by the sure-you-have-time-to-do-this-before-Christmas bug. I have a lot of unfinished projects I need to finish before tomorrow night.

    This is gorgeous, I am a crocheter myself (can’t get on with knitting!) I might see if I can adapt a crocheted version if you don’t mind, with all credits to yourself of course! (adds to ever expanding list of planned projects…)
