MERRY KNIT’MAS 💚💜💛🧡
Hello to you all!
I am so very very excited for the holidays, I cannot wait to take my little (not so little now) human away for a big exciting road trip around the South Island. This is his Christmas present from me, and I’ve been saving up all year to make this happen. We are hoping to kayak with Dolphins at sunset in Kairkora, mountain bike in different parks from Mt Hutt to Nelson, and then we are off into the Abel Tasman for a big adventure, before some serious beach time. Living in the mountains, as we do, we don’t see the coast often, let alone spend time on the sandy shores – so this will be a real treat. And yes you bet I will have my knitting! Summer is my biggest season of making, as it’s when I sit and actually relax. I love a good holiday make, and I hope you do too.
My holiday make this year is going to be the next BIG BLANKET knit along which will kick off in January.
I hope to see another big group of makers take this fun journey, I know the 2021 edition proved to be very enjoyable for many 🙂
Anyhooo, I hope you’re sitting down and are comfy, cause this is a good selection of ideas for you to make, gift, sign up to, and share….
Wishing you a happy festive season and I hope you get sometime to rest and reconnect with your peoples,
Much loves from me
