...or Is it possible for a new knitter to make all of this by Christmas? :roflhard:
Good afternoon! I am in a bit of a pickle and wondered if some of you who have knitted longer than I (just 2 mos) can chime in with your thoughts.
This year we are a bit strapped for Christmas. Usually we just charge everything and pay it off a tax-time, but this year we are committed to not charging a single item. I recently took up knitting and so far have made scarves for my parents. I still have two scarves to make, for my MIL and my biological mother, but they are fast and I could be done within a week if I try. I am also trying to learn how to crochet Granny Squares so that I can make my husband the Afghan Squaredon the Lion site.
So, with that in mind, what could I possibly make for two nephews (1 and 3) and a niece (3) in time for Christmas? Maybe nothing, LOL! I thought about scarves. Simple enough, but I think I'd really like to make hats and mittens to match, and if I am going to do that there won't be enough time. Maybe "just" a scarf is enough, though? Then I thought about a doll or toy of some sort, but not sure that I am that far along in my skills yet.
What do you think? Is it possible to make them something by Christmas, or should I scrap it for this year and concentrate on next year? FWIW I am an at-home mom and can knit for several (2-3) hours each day, but also homeschool which takes a lot of my time.
Thanks for any thoughts!!! And for anyone who gets this far, check out this ADORABLE scarfthat I am making my nephews for next Christmas!
