Sometimes we get so caught up in gifting that we make things harder than they have to be. We search endlessly for the most unique gift. For the gift to top all gifts. We lose the spirit of giving and the spirit of the season.
Don't put all that pressure on yourself. Don't over-think it. Don't overlook hats, scarves, gloves and mitts as quick and inexpensive gifts. Boring? Never! I say they are classics. Little treasures you've knit up to keep your loved ones warm.
Why not whip up a pair of Porphyria like Spincerely?
How about a Hat For a Boyfriend like Vicki?
Jenn suggests Fetchings and Calorimetrys.
And Julie points us to the Helping Hats pattern.
I might be working on a scarf myself, although I do need to update the picture.
Looks like I've got plenty of skeins in the stash that would keep the people I love warm on a cold day. How about you?
