Start of Christmas Presents


I have a lot of people at work who I would like to do a little something for during the holidays that wouldn't make them feel obligated to give me a gift back. I think I've found the perfec thing. I found this cute pattern for miniature hats a couple of days ago. They're super easy. I'm going to knit a bunch of them and then buy a fun bottled drink like a Starbuck's frappacino or Godiva coffee drinik and put a little hat on it. Then I'll leave the drink and hat on my different friends' desks. Not much cost to me, but I'll make some people happy, I think.


I took my cyber-buddies' advice and stuck with myLoksins and finished them last night. Wait a minute..they're not mine. They're my sister's Christmas present. She doesn't read my blog very often, so I think I'm safe to tell. I really did like the pattern. I can easily see myself knitting this pattern again. I do often feel that my handknit socks are too loose, but I think it's mostly that they're just a different fit.
It really is a wonder that I am able to get any knitting accomplished. This picture is not staged. The only animal missing from trying to stake out a position on my lap is our rabbit, and he probably would try too if we let him in the house.

I absolutely adore the little hats - they're ever so cute and such a perfect gift idea! And I'm so impressed by the socks too, they're really gorgoeus in this beautiful color!
What a great pic of you and your pets all cuddling up on the couch - thank you for sharing!
Happy Knitting!
