Looking up at my calendar and realizing there are only 11 crafting days left until Christmas is a bit overwhelming. I still have four weaved scarves to make, two stockings, and a pair of socks (or four). AND to top it all off, I still need to spin the yarn for a few of my projects. Oh no!
I did finish a stocking. It’s a bit funkier than I had originally planned and a bit smaller. The yarn was bumpy and it hides the cable pattern that runs throughout it more than I planned. I think I will add a little embellishment to the top or weave a bit throughout to make the cables more pronounced. Gauge, is something I just don’t like to listen to. I know, some of you out there just cringed. I just like planning and starting projects, if indeed I finish it, which is oh so rare, I will love it regardless of if it will only fit a giant one legged man. My socks tend to be too big, so I figured I’d rock a stocking…well it’s a bit too small! Go figure!
If you have thrown the idea of making things for those on your shopping list out the window already and you are still looking for a one of a kind gift, I have a few things that may help. I still have one Yarn of the Month Club subscription left in each 1, 3, or 6 month subscription. If they do not knit or crochet, I have plenty of Felted Soap and a couple Weaved Scarves left in my Etsy Shop.
