Last Minute Gift Ideas

Friday, December 7th, 2012

I’m sure everyone is busy with trimming, blocking, weaving ends in, and joining their seams by now.  Knitters and crocheters never wait until December to make gifts…..right? HA!

 

So my mom’s shawl is made as well as the socks for my brother but here I am, December 7th,  just remembering all the folks I forgot.  It’s easy to overlook when our days are so hectic.  I have so many people in my life who’s small actions make things run smoothly.  Of course I remember my son’s teacher, but there’s the really sweet, part-time aide who always saves him a chocolate milk at lunch.  If you’re a mom, you know it’s important to have people be good to your kids.  The holidays are the perfect time to let them know how special they are.

This is where I thank my lucky starts for our line of ruffle yarns! One night, one skein in most cases, one aide remembered!  I wanted to share some links for the patterns I’ll be using from Ravelry.  Call your yarn shop and get a ball today!

Bungee Sock Yarn

I put on a new pair of socks today – made from our yarn, BUNGEE.  Wow, I am so HAPPY with them.  They feel great.  Fit great!  I have had them on all day, for over 10 hours and they still maintain their shape.

Today, I am referring to them as my 12 hour socks.  Hey, some company has an eight hour bra.  I never really understood that one.  What happens at the ninth hour??  Does it no longer work?  Does the bra disappear like the stuff in the Fairy Tale,  Cinderella?    LOL.  Anyway, love the way this yarn holds it’s shape through the day.

Beautiful fall colors.  Check out the colors.

Look at me with my foot on my desk!  Too funny!
