Southern Girl Swap: Fancy Little Things; Christmas Traditions

Hi guys! Today I am blogging over at Kati
s Get Away so go check it out HERE! But before you do- check out Allie's guest blog post below! :) 

Hi everyone!!!

I'm Allie and I blog over at Young Love.
This is me with my sweet fiance, Blake. He is a coach for Russellville!

This is our pride and joy, Ace. 

Over at my blog you will find a little bit of everything.... fashion, food, football, a little DIY... all that kind of stuff!

I am so excited to be guest posting here today, and I wanted to talk about something very exciting coming up... Christmas! And more specifically.. Christmas presents!

Being a broke college student... buying Christmas presents for two very large families (mine and Blake's) can be expensive. So this year I decided to get creative. 

Now you will probably laugh a little when I tell you what I've been up to... but laugh all you want, because I am quite proud of my homemade presents!

I have taken up kitting.

Yes, you read right.... knitting.

Backstory: When i was in high school, my Sunday school class learned how to knit. We knit tons and tons of scarves for a women's shelter during the Holidays. It was great. Well, then I moved away to college and forgot all about knitting. Then enters tiny bank account and the urge to buy lots of Christmas presents. So I got a little more creative. I have been working on some really fun projects and trying to "modernize" my knitting!!! Here are a few of the projects I've completed so far!

Here is an infinity scarf I made!

Here is a headband/ear warmer with a flower I added!
Here is a "cinched" headband/ear warmer!

Here is my latest project: Chevron knitting!!

So there you have it! My latest hobby! Knitting is super easy and super fun.. and the things I have made are SO much cheaper to make than to go out and buy! 

Thank you again, Bethany, for letting me take over your blog!

Happy December!
