The pleasure of giving – its not just about writing

Its not just about writing for pleasure … although that does take up a lot of my energy these days ! The pleasure with which a friend received a hand-made gift (not from me) recently reminded me how much a hand made gift means – to both the giver and the receiver.  I don’t knit as much as I used to with my hands being rather useless … but I do very much enjoy making small things for friends. Hats, scarves and gloves are well within my range of capability – and do seem to be appreciated. I did say at the start that I would randomly blah on about topics other than writing … 

This is Graeme’s hat, scarf and gloves (well one of them anyway), the hat is almost done, the scarf about 2/3 of the way through, and of course there is just one fingerless glove. It is just starting spring in the UK at the moment – but the the thought was there, and I am sure it will be horribly cold in the next autumn / winter. Maybe even in the UK summer !!!

My sister is looking for a scarf soon, and I have some other friends in mind for my knitting list 🙂 I will post updates occasionally (can here your sighs of relief that it will only be occasional ….) until next time ….
