Have you started any of your Christmas making yet? I've actually been really good this year and written out my gift making list early, plus I've already ticked off a couple of things, which feels really good! This year I'd like to knit a few presents, which sounds a bit dorky (I think) when you tell people that you're knitting gifts. There's often a slight grimace on their face and then they start conjuring up images of knitted toilet roll holder dolls. But, there are some really awesome patterns out there these days, it's just a matter of tracking them down and matching the pattern with some nice yarn. Knitting and crocheting have definitely become cool again!
We've all been under the weather this last week and are still struggling a bit to get back on top of things, so there has been plenty of movie watching, tea drinking, sitting on the couch and crafting type of moments. I've been really powering through my Weekend in Stockholm blanket too, but more on that tomorrow. I'm here to share another completed dishcloth and new free pattern with you today!
I live with my husband and 2 children in Tasmania, Australia. I love to make nice things, spend time with my family, travel, bake yummy treats, read pretty craft books, give handmade gifts, toast marshmallows in our wood fired oven & live a lovely life.
