Currently knitting and baking...

It's beginning to look like christmas here in Germany. We've even had a little bit of snow this week. In between working and finding the perfect christmas decoration, I'm doing a lot of crafting and baking at the moment.

Unfortunately I can't show you all of the knitting and crochet projects I'm working on at the moment because they're mostly gifts for family and friends and I don't want those who read my blog to see their gifts before christmas. However, you can have a look at my knit and crochet gift ideas on pinterest

I've almost finished knitting this herringbone cowl, it's a really cool stitch (never seen it before) and you need only 100grams of wool (if you have any leftovers). I chose a different colour because it's a gift to wear with neutral colours. 

I also want to take part in this Knitalong where we are going to knit a cushion with a fair isle Norwegian style pattern. I've ordered the wool for the small cushion from their shop. It's a fantastic. I hope to be able to start knitting soon. 

Besides, it's cookie time!!! I've already made a lot last weekend. 
What is your favourite activity during christmas time? Baking or making gifts? Do you have proposals for home made gifts?
Have a nice time eating cookies, drinking mulled wine at the christmas market and decorating your apartment. Love, Kerstine
