I finished the gift project the other day... looks pretty good, I think.
N. is modeling it very reluctantly.
A labour of love indeed. It wasn't a giant project, and so it wasn't a huge burden, and I'm happy to have done it.
Lots of good comments and discussions around the "Labours of Love" post. One knitter says that she's entirely happy to knit for someone who doesn't ask - since it's a genuine, from-the-heart gift. Makes sense to me!
I am considering knitting one gift for Christmas this year. Just a small thing, but I think it will be appreciated. Or will at least get a laugh.
Speaking of Christmas, have developed a mild obsession with this....
Yes, it's tacky Christmas sock yarn with glitter in it. And I needs me some.
My lame attempt at rationalizing it goes like this... I'm always knitting socks in public, and usually have one on the go when I'm teaching - and wouldn't it be fun it if were seasonal!
Yeah, that's it.
Might have to make a special pilgrimage to Mary Maxim to get me a ball.
Yes, that's right. It's tacky Christmas sock yarn with glitter in it MADE BY MARY MAXIM.
I am so ashamed...
