While most people might think it is too early to start thinking about Christmas, I've been thinking about it for at least a month now. My family is spread across both the US and now the UK, and this year we are having a family Christmas at my parents house. I am looking forward to seeing everyone, enjoying the warm weather, and the food!
With that in mind I've set myself the ambitious task of making everyone a homemade gift. I know, not everyone likes a hand knitted hat or scarf, but tough luck for them, because that is what they are getting.
I've completed a few projects so far, but I just finished my very favorite hat of all time. It is for my wee niece Kat, who will be 20 months at Christmas.
Now I have to get started on one for her twin brother Archie. I'm thinking a wee jesters hat, but time will tell!
I've also been busy making my poor dog embarrassed to belong to me. She sometimes gets cold, so I whipped up a sweater for her.
Surprisingly she she doesn't seem to mind it.
