Ok so in a few weeks I’m going to a very swanky Christmas party for all of my girlfriends. There will be much wine and good food. I’m super-excited about it. Except that I have to bring a $15 gift to exchange. Now not everyone at this party knows I’m a knitter or even what that means. I’m kindof new to the group... But I decided to knit my gift because then it would be original and much nicer than just buying some random lotion or something (preaching to the choir here, obviously).
Anyways my gift had to be less than $15, cute, fashionable, and appealing to anyone who might happen to pick it. So I made this hat:
Yeah the ghetto lightbox leaves alot to be desired.
It’s actually not finished. I still have to find a button which will make it look more like the real one here.
So right. Super-cute hat, check.
Horrible bathroom mirror shot, Check.
Anyways I have 2 more skeins of Patons Shetland Chunky to do something with. And only giving a hat seems sortof lame... So what should I make with the remaining skeins? I originally thought a scarf. But I can’t find any seed stitch scarfs that I like and I want it to match the hat. So perhaps mittens? Or flip top mittens? Or is that toooooo original. Or perhaps I should just buy a candle or something to go with it and consider myself done. Or is this not a good gift? I could make something else entirely – like a bracelet or earrings or something that could be super-trendy… I dunno…
What do you guys think?
