Hello there! Well, it's been awhile yet again since I've been out to post, but you have to admit, it hasn't been as long since the previous time. I thought a good topic for today would be about getting ready for the holidays. And by the holidays, I really am only talking about Christmas. Because you see, I am up to my arm pits (Yes, arm pits!) in Christmas knitting. However, I am proud of myself. I started mucho earlier this year than last and I'm knitting up from existing patterns and not making a new pattern up as I knit along. This is making the process much easier. Well so far at least.
Perhaps in another post I'll talk about some of my current projects. But for today, I thought I'd share the projects I knitted up last year and the pattern I used.
It all started when I tried to think up a 'family' gift for my three brothers and their family. You see, we used to draw names but then a few years back my sister in law thought it would be a better idea and cheaper to do one family gift for each family. So that is what we have done for the past few years. The trouble is how to keep from being boring and repeating the same gift over and over. I thought up a remedy. I'd knit something.
