Sometimes it’s just easier to make something pretty than figure out what to buy.
How many of you prefer to make holiday presents than buy them? It seems like it would take longer, but really, trekking around the city trying to find something that’s just perfect can be even more time- and energy-consuming than just sitting down and knitting a nice hat.
And since I already have so much yarn, it isn’t really costing me extra to make things. So that’s what I’m doing. Not for everyone – a lot of family members are getting store-bought gifts – but my friends can mostly expect something handmade.
