Knitting Adventures - Giving handmade

Happy Daisy Knitting
Now it's January, it's safe to share some of the things I made for people this Christmas (or last Christmas?)... I thought it'd be a good idea to knit everyone something, and I started off being really organised - I made the first pair of socks back in August, while I was cat-sitting for my friend, and watching the London Riots on the telly.

Unfortunately it went downhill rather fast, as work and life started to get in the way. I can knit a sock in a day, if that's all I do that day, but it's rare to find empty days perfect for knitting when you're working night shifts, or applying to art school or just living life! It took a long time, and I was knitting right up until December 22nd, but I finished them! These are photos of socks I knitted, all with pretty, variegated yarns...

In total, I knitted:
- four pairs of socks
- a pair of Christmas stockings
- two scarves
- two pairs of mittens
- and a hat.
It doesn't sound like a lot when it's written down, but it certainly felt like a lot at the time!

I'm pretty proud of them, and I think they were well received, but I don't think I'll be doing it again this year! I'm looking forward to knitting some things for myself now! Haha :)
