Gift Knitting???? Am I Crazy?

Yes.
No.
Maybe….

I think that these are turning out well…..




I may knit one on larger size needles, to see if I like the fit better, these don’t stand up on their own, but they are snug. I am not sure that I enjoy the snugness. It is however supportive.

So they are pretty, a successful knit, and that means they will be a good quick knit to get a few of the ladies in my life gifties. I already have some yarn, and I am unsure if the colours will be appropriate for those that I wish to knit for. A quick stop at Knitopia will fix that, but that means I have to choose new colours. LOL

I do plan to knit for the family men too. Some will get fingerless gloves, and some more elaborate knitting. My brother has asked for socks, cool I also have a good idea for a new hat for him. My BIL always seems to get left out when the knitting comes around. This year I have begged Sarah for her Mario inspired chart and I am going to knit him a great scarf…. He will love it! I want to make sure that everyone gets something that they love, so I checked with my brother about what type of theme he would like…… video games. LOL

I do have another holiday project this year. My knitting pals and I have decided to do a “Secret” gift giving. The short story behind this is that for the last few years we have all pledged to hand-make the gifts that we give to each other…. and that takes time. Especially since we gather more friends to us every year. So this year we set a dollar value and drew names…..

So I have to plan for that, and since a good many of our group is online and knows this blog….
I am not sharing anything here. Sorry. Updates when we exchange in January. I promise.
I am going to give more updates on the gift knitting underway for other though, so I will have active stuff to share pictures of. I can’t wait to see what you all are up to!
