I’m a process knitter. I love knitting. I normally don’t care for the final products. Which makes me a great candidate for a gifting knitter.
I also like the idea of knitting to make people happy. If one of my friends gets really excited about a knitted thing they saw, I tell them to buy the pattern and yarn and I’ll make whatever. So far not too many people have taken me up on that offer. But the offer always stands.
Which is why I jumped at the offer to make my co-worker a baby blanket. And may I say its coming along very nicely.
I’m also thinking about possibly knitting my dad a hat. I think its starting to become a Krampus tradition for us. I ask him what he wants, he responds with a shrug, I end up knitting him a hat. I think this is 3 years running now. If I have enough yarn I think this one will be a earflap hat.
Wish me luck in my Krampus endeavors. I hope my fingers don’t fall off.
ps- The pattern is Cerys Baby Blankie by Leah J Williams. The yarn is Knit Picks Cotlin DK in Cerise, Canary, and Swan
