We all have our likes and dislikes don’t we?
Things we will do willingly – others we baulk at.
Any time I was asked to provide something for a cake stall I’d offer a cash donation instead or put myself down for double time manning the stall.
Cake or scone making were not my idea of good fun.
Same with knitting donations.
I’ll willingly knit all sorts of items for my chosen charities…..except for one.
Guess what item my group decided on for their latest winter drive?
The one item on my ’really do not enjoy making’ list 😊
So as strange as it might seem here on the first day of Summer, the heat is on for each of us to make as many of these (in different sizes) as we can by the time we meet again mid February
Which will go a long way to making sure the stock cupboard will be full at the start of the cold weather next May.
What I’ve got against them is a mystery, because the toddler size is so easy to knit – and so adaptable as well. They don’t have to have stripes – they could be completely plain if you want and it doesn’t have to be a single rib band… 2×2 could work just as well.
Are there things you’ll do but not enjoy…..things you do, not because you have to or want to….things you do while muttering under your breath the whole time….and then wonder what all the fuss was about when you finish?
And if you’d like to find out a little more of what other people have been up to – you really must visit….. Unraveled Wednesday hosted by Kat…….As Kat Knits.
There’s lots of knitting of a far higher standard than my Nana Knits there plus reading as well. I wrote about my recent readings the other day – which you’ll find HERE.
