Hello, fellow crafters! Courtney here. I have a challenge for you.
When I first felt accomplished enough as a knitter to give people gifts, I’d often start them sometime in early December. After a few failures, and extreme late night knit sessions to finish projects on Christmas Eve, it dawned on me that summer is probably a more appropriate time to start working on handmade holiday gifts. Then, I started working on larger holiday gifts. Whole sweaters and shawls and the like. These take a REALLY long time to knit, so this year, I scaled down and made socks, hats and other accessory items. This was definitely more doable, but I started too late again (like, after Thanksgiving). So, inspired by my friend Brenda, this year I am going to attempt to knit at least one item a month, so that I can relax next December instead of giving myself carpel tunnel.
This is my challenge to myself and to you. Are you game? Here are a few options I am currently considering:
Falling Water Scarf
Star-Crossed Slouchy Beret
Baby Chalice Blanket
Stop in or comment below and let us know if you accept the challenge. There's nothing like accountability to keep you to your goals! Happy knitting!
