Confession: generally I dread Christmas. Except for Valiant Husband I just pick up gift cards and tokens so I don’t have to deal with it. Even for Valiant Husband I have never started shopping before maybe July. And as much as I knit, I very rarely give knitted gifts. I can probably count the number of times on one hand.
This year is shaping up to be different.
I started making this project bag with the Boku in the Mardi Gras colors. I modified the pattern to make it a little bigger and although it calls for I-cord I might use something else. I also plan to line it with coordinating fabric.
So I decided that each of my sisters might like one. Back to Helpful Shop Owner’s sale I went and acquired additional Boku in these fun colors.
While I was there I picked up my mother’s favorite color combination to make the Tiptoe through the Tulips socks, basically the same as the Love Socks but with a tulip pattern. Tulips are her favorite flower so I am taking it for granted the socks will be a huge hit.
I will make my father a golf club cover but I can deal with that later. If Grandma and Aunt come again I can whip up some dishcloths. I can deal with that later too.
Valiant husband is likely to get socks as well if I can get my hands on the right colors.
Better get knitting…
