Slow October is followed by fast November, as I try to knit as many gifts as I can. I vow each year to knit gift items year-round to avoid the rush. So far I haven't kept that promise to myself! I am committed to spending less this Christmas, and giving gifts I have made will help.
To that end, hats and cowls are flying off the needles as I knit as much as possible this fall:
Still on the needles I have a One-Ball Cuffed Hat, a Hella hat (both in Lion's Pride Woolspun) and a Cropped Poncho for my mom. The hats have a birthday deadline of Nov. 27, but the poncho is a Christmas gift. Let's hope I finish!
