I thought I’d use this quite far from productive week to share a project in my “to finish” pile, I started knitting this jumper far too long ago, and I would love to have it finished by the end of the year, I’d honestly settle for this time next year!
I’ve been meaning to share this for a while now, I finished a fun nerdy knitting project around November time; and it didn’t really fit in with the Christmas content! This was a fun project, trying something new, and creating something just for myself!
I’d no secret I’m a tad on the nerdy side, and I’m a total Star Wars fan, though I’ll confess to preferring the original trilogy overall. I’m not a huge fan of every film, but I’m not here to start an argument over which is the best or the worst, I’m here to talk about adorable and a bit silly; crafty; nerdy knitting…
So there’s not long to go, but maybe you’re looking for some last minute gift ideas, here are some quick handmade Christmas projects that you can do, with things you can pick up affordably, or may even have around the house!
We’ve all been there, where we’ve needed a quick last-minute gift idea, and if you have some time on your hands, you can make something yourself for that added handmade touch!
I love a chance to do some Christmas crafting! This year I get to make a gift for myself; thanks to Hobbycraft, gifting me everything I need to make my own Knitcraft Hug it Out scarf!
This post contains a gifted product, the content of this post is entirely my opinion, based on my personal experience.
There is something so special about giving a handmade gift; though of course it can be very time consuming an endeavour! Having an array of quick to make gifts to hand; can be great for last-minute ideas or emergencies. One easy, quick to make project is a knitted or crochet scarf.
My guest blogger today is Christine, sharing fab gifts for crafters! A fellow craft blogger who I met through #CraftBlogClub on Twitter; I love her blog Craftyism, which is full of tutorials, tips, reviews and other crafty goodness.
Like me Christine is a fan of a variety of different crafts; and I’m so happy to share her gift guide.
Thank you so much Christine for this fab post! So many gorgeous pieces, and some much needed Christmas shopping inspiration!
Ah, knitting the Doctor Who scarf. This is something I know a thing or two about by now…
Ah the Doctor Who scarf, made famous of course by the Fourth Doctor played by Tom Baker.
There are patterns readily available for free online (Just google it) and this particular story begins when a colleague was making one a few years ago. I thought it looked pretty simple, and therefore I thought I’d have a go; because my brother is a huge Doctor Who fan! I’d just started knitting at the time, and it really is a simple project.
Ah last minute knitting! A lifesaver! Have you ever have one of those moments in December; you receive an unexpected gift, and now you need to panic buy a return present. Maybe you really don’t want to go into town or don’t have another gift in your budget? Go handmade!
There are lots of great ideas for last minute handmade gifts, for all levels of crafty skill! If in doubt, there is always hitting Pinterest for inspiration!
