A lot of crafty folks have been posting about their homemade Christmas gifts.Next year I want to try and make most of my gifts.I am learning to knit,I love it!My dream is to one day have my own fiber animals and spin my own yarn.Yesterday,I spent the day watching T.V. with The Boy and knitting.As a general rule, all day TV is a no-no unless you are sick.It started with the Thanksgiving Day parade and snow balled from there.I knitted 2 large dishcloths so the day was not a waste.
I got the pattern from Homespun Living. Click here to go right to the pattern.
I really like this pattern.These 2 are going to be part of a gift along with a jar of my homemade organic strawberry jam.
I am tickled pink at how cute a gift this is! I love homemade gifts.The time and care that goes in to them far surpasses the money aspect of gift giving.A gift of love.Isn't that what it is supposed to be about, giving a gift as a symbol of the greatest love gift ever given to us.
Last year I gave out a lot of homemade soap,but this year I am behind an didn't get extra batches made in time.It is nice to have a little something for the nice people in my life like my Sunday school ladies,the people who help with scouts,the mail lady.I think I will give little jars of homemade jam this year.Anybody out ther have a good holiday jam or jelly recipe,like spiced apple or something else that sounds festive, that they would like to share?
