Hello, it’s second Sunday of Advent
and the fifth day of Blogmas.
My day started out slow but very pleasant. But as the day went on I had more energy and was able to get some decorating done. Found a craft idea I wasn’t aware that was popular last year but only just seen it now. So I decided to give it a shot.
But during my my slow morning I worked on my advent hat and got caught up watching some vlogmas’s.
I wanted to ask you if you know of any other blogs who are also doing Blogmas. I would love to visit them and share what’s other bloggers are doing. Please put them down in the comments.
While working on my advent hat, there’s a process where you have to catch a stitch in the back from the beginning of your new mini you started. And in the instructions it does say to use contrasting yarn. Well my minis really have no contrast to them and I thought well I’ll give it a try cause I want to use my minis. Well it was a struggle to do that row. Decided it was best to use a contrasting yarn that I have in my stash. Did work out so much better.
Then I caked of some yarn that I had dyed last month using black walnut hulls. Turned out beautiful…….
I’m going to use this yarn for an Andrea Mowery pattern that I think is very cute cardigan.
I’m not sure when I’ll start casting on.

Yesterday while out with my dad I went by Walmart to pick up some brown and white lunch bags. I used the brown ones because they go very well in my dining room and so this afternoon I gave it a shot. They turned out so nice and we’re very easy to make. There are plenty of videos out there that you can watch and follow that are only a few minutes long because the process is really very easy. I used the glue gun instead of glue. Just because I thought it would dried a lot faster and I could have these up in no time which was the case. So I’m putting some photos of my process down below to give you an idea
