After my mammoth knitathon before Christmas (massive Advent calendar and Nativity set) I’m at a bit of a loss now. Can’t knit for Gdcs - the other granny is much better at jumpers etc. than me, and makes a lot for them.
I’m no good at fancy or complicated patterns, and neither dh nor I need jumpers.
I’ve made a number of dementia twiddle muffs in the past, but a bit fed up with them now.
The other day I made these 50 cm. cushions for a dd, for 2 hard chairs - as she said herself, current cushions were very cheap and now bordering on manky.
I used leftover curtain material I’ve had for ages - but it still only took a day!
I’m even thinking of another Advent calendar, but since I have only one lot of Gdcs, where to bestow it? Or another Nativity set (it’d be the 3rd) - I suppose I could bestow that somewhere.
I love a lot of the Jean Greenhowe knitted toys, but dd’s house is already overflowing with toys/soft toys, I really can’t lumber her with any more.
Shall wander down to John Lewis later and have a good browse at patterns, looking for inspiration for something that won’t be a waste of time and effort.
Any brilliant ideas, O Crafty Ones?
