Merry Christmas! I hope you and yours are having a happy holiday season.
Just for fun, I instigated a White Elephant gift exchange at knitting last week. The main rule was that everyone’s gift had to come from inside their house – nobody was allowed to go shopping beforehand. We had a hilarious time at the coffee shop and I’m pretty sure some of the other customers thought we were crazy. We all piled our presents on the big table…
Then we drew numbers to determine the order of choosing gifts…
Inside one of the big boxes was… oh yes, a leg!
Which was promptly stolen.
Participants could bring anything, provided they didn’t have to go out and buy it. We were warned not to squish this bag to determine what was inside.
Yum, robot cupcakes!
There were also light-up knitting needles, a trivet, singing and dancing stuffed hamster toys, a vintage My Little Pony figurine, and some very chocolaty bath products. I think some people even got some frantic last-minute gift knitting done.
If you still need a gift for that special someone (perhaps yourself!) there are still memberships available in next year’s sock club. I’d love for you to join us for another year of sock knitting and cookie baking!
