How is everyone’s week going? Putting the finishing touches on all those Christmas presents?
I think I am just going to have to admit defeat and buy all the gifts I need to instead of making them like I intended. Work has been crazy busy and by the time I get home I am exhausted. Today I came home and slept for an hour which I have never done! It didn’t help that I was not feeling very well.
Needless to say I haven’t had much motivation to do anything. Last night I started one of my many kits from FreshStitches. I started the Mal the Duck because my eyes were hurting after staring at a computer all day. I could not focus on the black stitches of the top hat.
I love that you get everything you need in one little bag, the pattern, yarn and the safety eyes. In New Zealand it is very difficult to buy worsted weight yarn. I always wanted to try it to see what I was missing and these kits have been perfect for that. The wool yarn that is in the kits is really nice to work with and I do miss it when I go back to using acrylic yarn which is what has the best range of colours.
That is all from me today. Good luck with finishing any last-minute Christmas present you might be making.
