None of it will probably be worn, my family is the type that if it’s not bought at a store, it’s junk.
We all end up with some family who see things that way. Sometimes I wonder if my family realize that it is the thought not the gift that counts, and creating your own is a lot more thoughtful than running to the store and buying the first thing you see that happens to be “a good deal”
My sister is notorious for her impractical, unusable store bought gifts that usually end up stored in a closet or given away. One year she bought fancy spangle evening bags for my daughters, as if they were heading to some fancy prom. The problem? They were 7 and 9 years of age - LOL.
I’m kind of debating this one still. First I haven’t the skills yet to do some of these projects. Second, my family is all over the place, and in various climates. Sending winter type gear to FL isn’t exactly sensible LOL so winter scarves are out.
I would like to find a good trivet knitting pattern for my MIL. She plays hostess way too often and her number of trivets has depleted mostly they are just so old they are falling apart or breaking, etc. I’d like to make 2 or 3 to match her kitchen and the same number to match her dining room as she uses both consistently.
Beyond that I am rather stumped but I’ll keep skimming through patterns for other ideas. The only “men” I have to do anything for is my DH and son in law, both my father 4yrs and FIL 11yrs passed away quite a while ago.
