Let the gifting begin!

First off, I love Christmas. Consider yourself warned.

I have a friend, of the sort that will know me for the rest of our days. I am so thankful for her–friends since kindergarten, the most fun, the best listener, the most wise, the most caring, my Mary Kay lady, need I go on? She mentioned she needed gloves, and I was thrilled to have the chance to do something for her (Then she accidentally expressed an interest in learning to knit. I’m sure the next thing she remembers is getting out from the yarn I’d piled around her with four or five rows of a scarf on the needles…).

A swirl, anyone? I didn’t intend to do it, but when I got to the end of the ribbing I knew I had to put a little something extra into these, because honestly? My friend just sparkles. And she mentioned that she, like me, feels like she looks awful in hats, so as a bonus I was happy to try this Drops design for her. Can’t wait to see how it looks, but thus far the pattern is highly recommended!

Merry Christmas to Jess, and to all people whose very presence makes you feel like the best version of yourself!

    Those are great gloves! That travelling diagonal is such a great detail without being fussy. Good job! And the headband is a great hat alternative.
