Episode # 40 (I Lied! I’m Knitting Presents for Christmas)

16 Dec

I’m knitting/crocheting presents for Christmas, although I said I wouldn’t.  I’m making a crocheted afghan for my grandmother, who used to crochet, and is now 94 years old.  I know she will love it!  I’m also knitting my hubby a pair of Jeck Socks,  For myself, I’m knitting the Wintersweet shawl by Boo Knits.

My sister’s shop on Etsy is called Kit’s Fun Creations.  She often sells craft items made from buttons and fantastic beaded jewelry.  All proceeds are used towards paying for her diabetic service dog.
