For the first time in years I do not plan to give most people knitted gifts this Christmas.
As you probably read in my recent post, I put a lot of love into my knitted gifts for friends and family. It’s important to me. However with the Kickstarter gifts underway I’ve realised I don’t have time this year to put the energy in like I usually would.
So I’m buying gifts for people. Shock horror!
That said, I’m sure my loved ones don’t mind. My Secret Santa at work will be lucky enough to get a knitted gift but that’s something quick and easy. Other than that, people will be getting gifts that suit them – just not gifts I’ve made.
This is very strange for me. Sometimes it even feels like cheating. Yet I know that with care the gifts will be just as full of love as a hand-knitted treasure.
Are you knitting/making people gifts this year? Why/why not?
