I have pared down my gift giving at work the last few years. At one time I knitted fishermen scarves for those in my area. I think that was about 14 or 15 of them.
Then the next year, I knit little Santa boot like covers for everyone and put candy in them.
A year later I decided to knit just for the ladies. I knitted them all Christmas colored washcloths and wrapped pretty molded soaps inside them.
This year I am just down to two gifts for the ladies that I supervise. I have not knitted anything for them in a few years, but decided this year to knit them both a Purl Ridge Scarf by Stephen West out of some fairly fine yarn. Even with just two of them to do, I am starting to sweat having them done before the 20th of December!
Before we leave the subject of the calendar, I want to share a website with you. Every year, Drops does a advent calendar where every day you click on a picture and there is a free holiday pattern. Yesterdays pattern was a super cute stocking which so goes with yesterdays blog post.
I love this site. Drops Advent Calendar
It is so much fun to unwrap each days pattern, enjoy!
