OK, so it’s not halfway through the year yet, but if you want to give hand made items to your nearest and dearest at Christmas time, you need to do some work through the year to be ready on time. I made a laceweight shawl in early spring, as a knitalong, and that will be a gift for one of the young ladies in the family. Today, I’ve just taken a second shawl off the locks; this time a sock weight one. A really fun knit which will be a gift for a friend. plenty more to do, but it really feels like this year I might be ready in good time 😉
I’m wary of knitting too much for the family, just in case I’m way off beam with what they’d like, and it’s always good when someone asks for something to be made. More Christmas knitting later in the year, I’m sure!
