I’ve started this post several times, attempting to open with cleverness or wit, to no avail. So without further adieu, look at this week’s Pretty Pattern!
I bought this pattern for two reasons: one, because I thought the main illustrated lady looked like Bettie Page and was adorable, and two, because of the knitted booties! When I was little my “sort of” Grandma (she’s my Grandma’s best friend who took over Grandmotherly duties when my real Grandma passed) used to knit me similar booties each Christmas.
And speaking of Christmas I thought, wouldn’t it be great to get started on making presents now? Who wouldn’t like to receive hand knitted booties, especially if one lives in a cold clime? I know I do. I love handmade gifts but I wonder if this is largely because, as a crafter, I can identify with the amount of time (and love!) spent making them. What say you oh wise readers? Handmade gifts yay or nay?
Happy Holidays 😉
