So, in exchange for a box of Krispy Kreme donuts, I agreed to make a number of items for Fathers Day Market at the school my little terrors go to. Problem was, I really, really struggled to come up with small, fairly easy and quick things that I could make that would fall into the generic category of ‘Fathers day gifts’.
Google was really unhelpful, unless I wanted to make 100 hats, slippers or socks, or even worse, knitted ties!
So I made up my own pattern that appealed to the father in this household at least, and that was…
A beer mat! Or coaster, or bookmark or whatever you want it to be, but something quick, easy and actually useful – all with being nice and generic!
In non knitting news, its been a somewhat dull and wet week this week, which is irritating as my grass is knee high and desperately neds cut and I have fences that really need painting! At least the covid restrictions have lifted to the point that I was finally able to have Felix’s best friend round for a playdate yesterday – the sweet sounds of shrieking, laughter, banging and giggles was surprisingly welcome after so long!
Thats all for now, have another play date arranged for today and I best not run late for it!
Happy knitting and stay safe!
