Tomorrow is the first day of July. The first day of the second half of the year.
It’s time to start planning and working on handmade holiday gifts already. I’m so great at planning ahead and getting everything made way, way ahead of time!
No. Not really. I’m a last minute gal no matter how early I start.
If I do one here and there, it’s got to help relieve stress six months from now, right?
Let’s do it. Together. Let’s get started. Okay?
This morning I made this Fair Isle mug cozy. Well, it’s supposed to be a mug cozy, but because I never swatch to check gauge, mine ended up too small. Fits this bottle nicely, though, so that’s cool.
Anyway, it was good practice and my first colorwork project ever aside from stripes. Loved it. Will certainly be making more. They’ll make fun gifts for mail carriers, UPS drivers, the hilarious lady that works the register at Walgreens, firewood delivery people, etc.
Now, what else shall I put on my gifts-to-make list? And what’s on yours?
P.S. Ignore the glitter glue on the craft table. I used my daughter’s table because there was good light, okay?
