Christmas gifts this year are going to be crafty gifts. Cheap crafty gifts. I'll show pictures when my computer stops being stupid. Anyway, my older sister always claims to not want anything so she's almost the hardest person to shop for. I thought and thought about what to make her or get her until I came up with the thought that when she gets to Nebraska (from Hawaii) in early December, her tiny 100+ pound butt will be freezing off. So I've decided to knit her a scarf.
Do I know how to knit? Nope. Do I have knitting needles? Nope. Hmmm...what to do, what to do.
Finger knit her a scarf!!!
I bought a skein of yarn and watched a You Tube video explaining how to finger knit. Very easy but sort of time consuming (well, no more than real knitting or crocheting). The hardest part is I didn't know how long it would take and Moose LOVES yarn so I had to do this during nap time. I tried at bedtime last night, but I messed up so I had to start over & was too tired to start over. So as soon as the kid was out for a nap, I picked up my yarn to start.
It's super long because it's not thick or anything, so I had to make it long so it would keep her semi-warm. Now, I'm debating on waiting for her visit or sending it to her boyfriend in New York so she'll have it there or sending it to her in Hawaii so she can take it with her. Hmmm...
