The run up to Christmas (like every year) is full of crafting for presents and each year I think I have it all in hand and I most definitely won’t be knitting/crocheting up until the very last moment. And each year, I’m wrong.
Well, guess what??!! This year I wasn’t! 😊 I actually had all the gift knitting finished a few days before Christmas and the pressies that needed to be posted were finished at least a week and a half before! Yay!
I made all the ladies in the family a Daisy Stitch Facecloth and then bought a few other bits and pieces to make up a little pampering kit. I love the facecloth pattern. They were so easy to make and knit up really quickly. And the plan is to make some for myself in a whole rainbow of colours! Daisy Stitch Washcloth project details here.
There were a few non knitting related pressies received, but of the knitting related, there was a gift from Diane that I fell in love with straight away.
I knew exactly what I wanted to make as soon as I opened the present 🎁 the 3 Colour Cashmere Cowl by Joji Locatelli.
I’d seen the cowl that heathwitch made in person at our weekly knit night and decided that as soon as I could, I would be making this stunning cowl.
So tell me, what’s on your needle(s)? How’s your new year so far?
