Homemade Holidays

I have been wanting to share some of the gifts I made for the kids for Christmas, but I have had the hardest time uploading pictures to blogger.  I found out about this great site called Picnik (probably the last person to find out about it!) where you can resize your photos for free.  I learned how to knit a couple of months ago so I wanted to knit my daughter a doll.  This pattern is the reason I wanted to learn to knit, so I was really excited that it was much easier then I thought it would be.  It did take forever, since I am such a slow knitter.

It is such a cute little doll!  My husband calls her a "portly gal".  Lol!  My daughter really likes it.  I really wanted to focus on more simple gifts this year.  I will share some of the other things I made later today.
