Amiright? I mean my heart & good intentions were all in the right place when I decided to hand knit all of my Christmas gifts this year. Some of which not only had to be knit but also wrapped and then shipped to the lucky recipients. All of which takes time & unfortunately time was not on my side this year!
It’s all good though because as I procrastinated worked diligently in the days months before Christmas I found I had lots of beautiful yarn left over to make some matching mittens because who doesn’t like a nice set of matching winter wear? Ok, well me for one but I’m sure my grandchildren feel differently. Only time will tell…and by “time” I mean the time it will take me to actually finish these matching mittens ( I’ve made one single mitten thus far) & shipped them along with the hats to the kids for Christmas New Year or Valentine’s Day …..hmmmmm I wonder if these will fit them next year…..

Blocking one of the boys (aka incredible grandsons) Christmas gifts. A complicated simple (?) knit beanie.
Lovingly knit up using sock weight wool fiber in charcoal & the patience and perseverance of a saint.

I hope it fits the child in question & he likes it (a lot) because it took me a total of 72 hours to complete. Yeah, #knittinggrandmaproblems. Don’t ask. 😉

On to knit Christmas hat number three after a little yarn shopping for a more practical worsted weight in washable wool because this Gwams learns from her mistakes mishaps poor choices well meaning intentions 😉

Right you are! The answer is me.
Well maybe not but I have been knitting at lightening speed in an attempt to finish all of my handmade Christmas gifts for the fam. While that does not make me superman woman it does make me happy! The only problem I have when knitting presents for others is I want to keep them for myself! I always have the good intention to whip up an extra for me but honestly that never happens.

Knit washable wool beanie hats for The G-doodles. I think this one is in need of a fluffy pink Pom-Pom. Fingers crossed it fits! I’m currently working on a matching pair of mittens & two more kids hats for the boys. hoping they also fit 😉
