If you are planning on knitting gift for the holidays it is about time to start now, if your sewing there is no need to hurry, but I always prefer to have it all done in god time. I think that gifts should be given gladly and with love and if you start in time there is nothing stressful about it. I think that planning gift can be something wonderful, to imagine what they going to look like when there opening the gift and so on. There is something special with handmade gifts, all that time that spent making them I think it is some thing far more valuable then money and I way to really show you loved ones how mush you appreciate them. I only have one rule for handmade gifts and that is that the recipient understand the commitment it is to make something from scratch and will use it. When choosing gifts it is always best to give what the recipient want rather them what you think they ought to have. There is a big difference and they wont like it just because you do, so alway have the recipient in mind.
To make your planning reasonable, there is only so much time, I have made a planer that you can print and use if you want to. Handmade gifts planner click to download.
Don’t forget how much time you actually want to knit or sew in a week, and you probably have some personal stuff as well. I know that I have a fancy dress party to attend and want to make a new dress for that, with will take most of my free time for a week or two, fancy dresses take time, so it is important not to overbook yourself. It is supposed to be fun.
