How are you making out with your gift knitting for the holidays?
I was fine for a bit, enjoying myself, and then I started to feel the pressure of the big day closing in. I started to make mistakes and then … panic sets in and the enjoyment goes out the window.
I like to knit for my loved ones. I think about them as I knit which I’m sure you do too. That makes knitting a pleasure and the giving extra special.
I did gift knit many Any Gauge Mittens, Top Down.
But I had a much more ambitious plan in mind which … I am now abandoning. I’m Done.
My new plan is to go through the pile of my knitted garments that sit on a shelf, OK, OK, many shelves. Things I knit because they looked like fun or were interesting, with no one particular in mind or maybe even for myself. I’m going to throw all the hats, shawls, mittens and cowls into a large basket and offer them around and say pick anything you like. Enjoy.
Whew. No pressure. I’m looking forward to the holidays now.
How about you? Are you knitting gifts? Is it fun? What are you working on? I’d love to hear about it.
