I like to knit things for people at Christmas. Not only is it hours of enjoyment for me, but it’s hours of my time that I put in to giving a person I love something I hope they will truly enjoy.
This could be a simple scarf, a complicated sweater, or just about anything in between.
This year, I’m late.
Usually to knit a half dozen Christmas gifts, I really need to start early. July early. The year I knit 14 Christmas gifts I started in February. Compounding the problem is that I’m making myself an indecently complicated shawl (the Evenstar shawl) and have begun spinning. Not to mention the book…
I just don’t have time!
It looks like knitted Christmas gifts will be becoming rarer. We’ll see. Maybe I can find quick projects that people want to have and use. Knitted resuable market totes anyone?
