That’s right all my friends that don’t knit and even some that do have started the “you could knit that for me” hints for their holiday gifts.
I fixed them this year, sorry you are tooooo late! All my knitted gifts are finished!! Yah right….right….except maybe I will make just one more scarf or another pair of slippers…….
So without giving too much away, here is what I began in June. Yes June. The weather was warm, I did not want heavy sweaters on my lap, but scarfs and slippers, and little gifts were the perfect summer knits.
I made lots of multiples of some items. One for me, a dozen more for gifts. Not only was I able to perfect and scale the pattern by making it for me first, I got all my BFF’s feedback of the ” I like or don’t like, I would like one in blue please”.
Below are the photo examples of what I made for me and the patterns I used. Your gift is neatly hidden away until just the right moment when we both can share the joy of a knitted gift together. In the meantime, I get the joy of a little knitted stash!
All patterns are from Churchmouse Yarns & Teas just in case you want to knit a little gift for someone as well.
