Christmas knitting, its one of those knitting things ... where knitters overcommit themselves to make items for someone who doesn't appreciate the time and effort that went into making that item. I'm not into the cult of Christmas knitting, I do make handmade items for family, however they are people who have idea of what they are getting and what it's value is. Also, often they are giving me back a handmade items so its all good!
Since getting a Cricket Rigid Heddle Loom I've mostly escaped the desire to knit last minute gifts for people, I can just weave them a scarf. When faced with my mostly unused KnitPicks Palette stash and the desire to make gifts for people, I started making these herringbone scarves, and this is another one. This one however is for my Grannie, who has always been a fan of Blue Willow patterned china.
So here it is one of the few handmade Christmas gifts that didn't take much in the way of time or energy and make a very nice gift.
