This year though, perhaps because of my crippling addiction to monthly, weekly and daily to do lists I managed for the most part to knit or weave a gift for almost my whole family. Almost, a few key items did not get made but I will take that with a learning curve and a glass of whiskey. Besides, there's always next year. I've already started BECAUSE I REFUSE TO BE BEATEN AGAIN.
I am particularly proud of the trigger mittens I knit for Jason's Dad. They were done on Boxing Day and I had to mail them (SO CLOSE TO VICTORY) and he has refined outdoor gear tastes. It met my need for a challenging knit.
And I nailed it! They had to keep his hands warm and his index finger available.
Of course, he is a man of discerning taste and is particular about colour. Hence the classic Manly Blue and White.
I love it when a plan comes together....makes me think that next Christmas needs a headstart.
