It’s easier for me to commit to printing, painting and some minis than knitting right now with all my aches and pains, so this is a Christmas ornament for a friend.
She received it today, so I can post a photo. It’s just a painted cabinet from a craft store and I printed some tiny book covers she might like. I really need to make myself one, so I also painted a cabinet for me, but I didn’t make any books or filler for myself yet. I better hurry, since my eyes aren’t what they used to be!
I’m on a bit of a hiatus now doing other things for the holidays, like baking, decorating and traveling. Early, I know, but I don’t want to miss sending my best wishes for you and your family for a joyous season of laughter, kindness and love.
“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”
I don’t know if people knit here because my public knitting, which not many people bat an eye to at home, has gotten some weird looks and bizarre comments. At a lunch spot, “Are you knitting? Will you teach me? I’ll call you the sweater lady.” Then from a woman down at the beach with her friend, “Is she knitting?” The other replied, “Don’t look at it. It looks too much like work.”
No matter the reaction, I knit everywhere I go because it makes me happy.
