Special Requests


Hello, friends. I have not blogged since the beginning of the month. I hope you all are well, churning out projects and enjoying the merriment of the season. I have been working on various projects and trying to brainstorm ideas for reviving my passion for blogging. I love sharing projects, but I find myself working on things and then they leave me before I even get a chance to snap a photograph. I sigh and move on. I just want to WANT TO make an effort to document them. Do you know what I mean?

My son made a special request and it made my mama heart soar. He said he wanted gloves without the finger tips. He thought we could cut the fingers off of some but then it was like a little light bulb went off in his head and he excitedly said, “OR YOU CAN KNIT THEM!!” and yes, I could. Of course. I have other projects I could be knitting, like Christmas gifts (!!), but I felt like these were more important. I’m using the pattern Knucks from Knitty. I have made it once, in my first year of knitting, when I was ambitious and wanted to knit EVERYTHING. Now, I remember why I haven’t knit it again: those little fingers are tedious! Alas, they work up quickly and before you get tired of doing something, you’re on to a new & exciting instruction.

Are you working on anything special? Do you drop everything and knit when someone you love asks for something specific?

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!

  • I feel ya on that one! I can’t remember the last time I blogged. But I am hoping to pick it up again soon! I hope you don’t stop because I love your blog! :)

  • I 100% know what you mean there I gave myself a time limit to do a crochet project for a gift and got it sent in time it only occurred to me later I hadn’t snapped a photo! I ended up feeling slightly strange and cheeky but I asked if they would kindly take some photos for me! I bet they don’t have to do that often it’s a bit awkward given photography directions via text! :D lol! X

    Working on a few handmade Christmas gifts right now. And yes, when my little asks for something special I drop everything to make it. These days are numbered and I intend to take full advantage of them! :)
