As you know I am mainly a “selfish knitter” as in, I tend to keep most of the things I make to myself – why not, I usually make nice things, and its a lot of effort!
So this year there is only one knitted Christmas gift, to my sister in law, whom I haven’t given anything hand-knitted to yet. I hope she likes her socks (and I hope she has the same size of feet as I do) as I am quite keen to keep these myself!
These are knitted up in Drops Fabel, one white, and one self-striping yarn, on size 2.5 needles.Next year I aim to knit a bit more. Fewer sweaters, although I still have plenty of yarn) and more smaller things that I can keep aside as gifts throughout the year. I know – the ultimate knitters cliché!
What’s your opinion on handmade gifts? yay or nay?
