This year I am making a few gifts for christmas, This one being a simple cowl knit that I learned to do here. I warn you though once you "get it" and your first project turns out to your amazement then my friends you are hooked - at least I am, and so I took on a challenge to make all the women in our families these cowls for christmas gifts. I need about 12 of them and this one is #7, but truthfully I may keep this one and keep on making - I have a little time.
Ava had no school yesterday so we headed out to the park and duck pond found that fall is showing us it's coming & she fed the geese at the pond. Once we got back I mentioned I needed to work and then take a look at the cowl progress - she is so interested in knitting and I have shown her how it works, often I will catch her playing with the other needles and trying to cast on ... I am up for teaching her. She helped me out with organizing the piles and even tried a few on I love that she loves what ever I am up to in the office either sewing knitting and yes of course Project Life she wants to do it all and I love that!
I will say that I had no idea that knitting was a seasonal thing + that many women are now getting there craft on, I probably needed that head start to be honest now it doesn't seem like a unrealistic goal to make 12 by December 24th. I will also add that I am so happy that it is knitting season! Go get some yarn!!
