Gift ideas: The home

Yesterday I walked into Woolworths and they had a Christmas table laid out with a neatly stacked pyramid of Christmas puddings. It is September. I feel like it’s a little premature for anyone to be getting excited about Christmas and the hard boiled cakes that will eventually outlive us all. Nevertheless, as knitters and crocheters we have an excuse. Presents pile up and life flies by and personally, I don’t want to spend the week leading up to the big day with my hands in permanent gridlock (again). So over the next few months I’m going to share the patterns and ideas I’ve been eyeing off, trying to avoid those that seem too costly or time consuming. 

Today I’ve got a few crochet and knitting patterns for around the home.
