my handmade year begins - the holiday knits
The forthcoming seasons of cold and frosty, wet and windy mean plenty of time at home making. This year my presents for the holiday season are handmade. I am nearing the end of Octavia (ravelled here) for my mama. I've made a few adjustments to make it perfect for her then have to finish Bloom (ravelled here). There are a mass of projects in my knitting basket (so much so that I may have to get a bigger work basket!) but I am enjoying sitting in front of the fire soaking in the warmth and making something beautiful, for someone beautiful, stitch by stitch.
