You may recall that I mentioned the ‘C’ word in one of my last posts – Christmas! You all know it’s just around the corner really, and with the nights drawing in and you contemplate whether the heating can stay off for too much longer, I know my head is firing up into present mode.
And as I have completed one gift, I thought it was worthwhile having a few thoughts around what I shall be making this year as gifts.
So, here goes.
- Table mats or a table runner – woven
- Selection of 3 Dish towels – woven
- Two bathroom hand towels – woven
- Shawl – crochet
- Blanket – knit
- Scarf & Hat – crochet/knit
- Two cuddly toys – amigurumi
- Scarf – woven
- Socks – that will be my challenge project
- Something for me
Now, how many days to Christmas? Weel, there is about 100 days to the last posting date, so I’ll need to make sure anything that I have to send off, is done first. Family are visiting us this year, so that helps a little, although things will need to be finished before they arrive. Else it will spoil the surprise. Plus, I still need to make a blanket for the mother-in-law – in the next few weeks!
All I need to do now is search out some patterns, raid my stash, and no doubt add to it.
Any of you out there already thinking the same way?
