Back to Christmas Presents

Next week it’s officially May. That means only 8 months until Christmas. Normal people do not have a problem with this timeline. Those of us that handcraft gifts are already in a panic. I had originally started this afghan for someone in my family, but after the first square, decided the colours were wrong so I have changed them to a light blue. Much nicer and calming. I can’t say who it’s for in case they see this blog! Needless to say, it’s a lot of work, and I would only do this much for this person because they’re very special to me. Here’s an up to date picture. I’m about 1/8 of the way through – time to put my hook to work!

I also finished yet another batwing shawl, this time in purple chunky. Since you’ve seen so many versions of it, I’m not in a rush to put a picture up. I’ll get around to it eventually
