So this year I decided to return that cozy hug like feeling I get whenever I wrap myself in the scarf my lover made me. I purcased some pretty yarn, got myself some knitting needles and set out to teach myself how to knit. I learned two things. The first being that I am terribad at knitting! The second thing is that knitting is kind of a pain.
I have messed up several attempts and have had to restart several times over. I had another gift in the works thankfully. So my love will still be getting a gift in time for putting under the tree, but I am bound and determined to finish a scarf for her.
The silver lining to this whole tale is that I enjoy the feeling of wearing the scarves she has made for me sooo much more than I already did, now knowing what a task it is to make them.
