Pressure off

Current WIP count: 9

The thing about going down to see family at Christmas is that I have to get all my Glasgow presents sorted well before the big day. There’s nothing like extra, shorter deadlines for piling on the pressure!

But my plan to only make presents for certain special people paid off. My WIP list is now back down to single figures, and only 3 of those are presents for other people.

The black present I started last week was a headband/ear warmer and I absolutely MUST recommend this pattern; It’s Gemma by A Knack For Knots and I started and finished the whole thing in less than 3 hours. It’s black so obviously impossible to get a good photo of, but here is my attempt.

I also finished my beady project, which was a couple of sets of mala beads for my boyfriend.

A full set is 108 beads (which I am going to make him one day), and smaller ones tend to be some division of 108. The green one has 27 beads and the purple one 54.

My dad’s hat now looks like this:

I’m just about to switch to DPNs for the top so it will be done in plenty of time.

All in all I’m rounding up the Christmas making season pretty relaxed 🙂
