Knitters, start your engines
Hello, there. My first Christmas present is done: the Butterfly Stitch hat by Sofiya Cremin. Gramma Joy can wear it this winter with the red scarf I made her last year.
I keep saying I'm going to scale back this year - my fingers only go so fast, after all - but I just don't think I can help myself! The sewing machine is so cheerful and inviting, the yarn so soft between my fingers. There is just so much goodness out there to work with. And after the flurry of sewing I just experienced, I kind of feel invincible.
Uh oh. The craft gods heard that, didn't they? Quick - someone squeeze some Malabrigo before I'm doomed!
