I'll explain. I am actually enjoying shopping for yarn to make gifts. I am having fun with my pattern choices but most of all I am amazed at how well I'm coming along with my determination of moving gifts out of the way. Is it possible that I WON'T be knitting gifts and sending them out the week before Christmas ? My fingers are crossed and that would be a first.
Like I said, I'm finding this new organized knitting self amazing.
By the way...
I think I have found the perfect hat pattern for those really cold northern winters. The combination is a Wool-Ease Thick & Quick and the Close-knit Waffle hat pattern (free Rav link). This yarn with this stitch makes a totally dense hat. I even purchased more yarn this weekend to make a couple more.
It almost looks like a brick wall doesn't it ?
For those of you that haven't tried any of the Wool-ease yarns, they are great.
I saw the cutest commercial last night. It's called the Gifter. You've probably seen it but I had to laugh remembering those days when I bought all gifts and how a couple family members and I were in the unspoken competition of trying to give the best gifts. For years I would have called myself a professional gifter. I had every size, favorite color, likes and dislikes of family and friends etched in my brain. I was never off. Ohhh the money we must have spent on that game. Funny.
Anyway, on to more holiday knitting. Enjoy Your day !
