Handmade Knit Hats and homemade Christmas gift plans

Every year I have a goal to make as many homemade Christmas gifts as possible.  I confess that in the past few years I’ve not make ANYthing!  Great plans but no results.

One of the items on that homemade Christmas gift list will be homemade hats, scarves and other fun wearables!  Which is why I was THRILLED when I heard about this great ebook Super Duper Knit hats for Beginners.(affiliate)

Making handmade Christmas gifts

THIS is the year I am going to learn to knit.  I’ve wanted to learn for a long time but I’m sooooo excited to make this one of my winter projects.  MANY of my ongoing projects are huge and take a lot of time to finish!  Rag rugs, cross stitch, quilts and scrapbooking are just a few I am working on a little at a time.

I want to be a project finisher not just a starter so I was looking for some smaller handmade crafts to make for Christmas.  Hand made gifts can really mean a lot!

One of the best Christmas memories that I have is that my mom loved to make "knitted" hats and scarves for her grandkids with a loom. I love that my son Joshua still has the last one she made for him and it just barely fits.

It used to cover a lot more of his head and not be so tight but he's man size now not little boy size!  So he is first on my list for a new hat!

My friend Evelyn, an experienced knitter, over at Nemcsok Farms has a great 4 part Learning to Knit series that I’m going to go through in October.  She also runs a facebook page for knitters that I’m hoping will be an encouragement and a place to go with questions.
