Tis The Season...

... to FINALLY finish the last of the hand knit Christmas gifts.

I know handcrafted/homemade gifts can be a bone of contention in some families. Those who do not like them insist it's cheap. Those who do insist it's a gift of love that transcends the humble ingredients.

As for me, it's my way of saying, "we care more about you than our current financial situation would indicate".

I'm just so relieved I'm finally done.

And my family is probably just as relieved that this year's gifts are considerably less lumpy than last year's gifts.

... although I couldn't resist at least one "not your grandma's knitting" design for my niece.

Yo Ho Ho, Merrrrry Christmas me hearties!
