Christmas Shopping (and a cool knit trick)!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Here we go again with the rushing around, desperately trying to find the right gift for our loved ones. It is as much exciting as it is terrifying! This year, I vow to get it done early so everything is ready.

I’m not sure what I’m getting everyone but I have been collecting a few ideas over the course of this year. My cousin was born last week so I had the idea to crochet her a blanket. That’s how I figured out this really cool idea…

So, the colours I chose are orange and yellow because they are bright and inspire happiness. I started to crochet but realised that the yarn is too thin for what I pictured in my head, and the colours didn’t work the way I wanted them to – orange was too dark, yellow too bright. Then a light bulb flicked on above my head like some kind of eureka moment – crochet them together, and it created something magical.

Unfortunately, these pictures don’t do it any justice but you can still see the amazing marble affect it has. It is so soft and warm already and I’ve only just started. I hope it turns out well and most of all, I hope I get it done before Christmas because I am really bad at finishing things I’ve started.

QOTD: What is on your Christmas wishlist?

AOTD:Β I think the thing I need the most is fluffy socks. You can never have too many fluffy socks, especially in weather like this.
