I know it’s the middle of summer, but it’s time to get started making my Christmas presents for family and friends!
I’ve already started my father’s scarf he requested. When I asked him what colour he would like, he said for me just to make it from leftovers from other projects. So, that’s what I’ve been doing. Here it is so far:
I’m also still working on items for my pattern book I’m hoping to have available in September. There will be 4 new never published patterns in it, along with 4 others of my favourites. It will be available as a downloadable PDF.
AND, in between all this, I’m still knitting hats and scarves to donate to the local downtown mission in hopes to keep some less fortunate people a little warmer this winter.
In fact, all of the items I create to write and test my patterns get donated, so there’s already a little pile started!
It’s a bit cooler here today and it’s raining! What a wonderful change from the heat we’ve had. Here’s hoping this weather stays around for a bit.
