DIY Christmas Presents

Fashion

It's never too early to start thinking about christmas presents, especially if you're going to be MAKING them!

Now if you've been following me on instagram for a while, you will know that the above picture I took last year, in preparation for my christmas presents*. I've been into knitting from about the age of 14. I got so into it I didn't know when to stop. Hence why one 'scarf' i knitted has turned out to be more of a small rug and is somewhat useless. However! I do think knitting is one of the most therapeutic things to do, and if like me you can't sit still and in the evenings, to be able to watch a television show, you have to occupy your hands in some other way...knitting is the way forward. 

 

With christmas on the horizon I thought why not come up with a few ideas of how to make your own gifts for friends and family members... So watch this space for more ideas in the run up to xmas. This means you can seem ultra giving, but really you need somewhere to palm off the excessive number of scarves you've been knitting this winter. Anyway scarves are super easy and with big needles and chunky wool you can create some great on trend gifts.

*I kept this scarf for myself*

 

Check out the below for some on chunky knit catwalk inspiration.

As this is MY blog I wanted to give you something I enjoy, however I shan't be giving you a step by step guide on how to knit. but click HERE for a great site I found where she does just this!
