So I haven't gotten much knitting done lately as studies have kept me rather busy, but I am looking forward to the Christmas break to remedy that. However, a couple of weeks ago I drew a friar's name for our gift exchange, and all he wants is a what he asks for every year: a Barnes & Nobles gift card. I hate giving gift cards! It's far too impersonal.
Well, just before Thanksgiving break one of the student friars told me that Fr. Camillus already has a whole stack of the cards! All the more reason not to get him one. That friar suggested I knit him something. At first I said no because it takes me much too long to knit, but then I realized I still had some yarn left over from which I made a beanie cap (crude as it may have been)over the summer. That hat only took about four days to make sitting on my rump in front of the television, so I thought 'well maybe I can get it done by the 13th of December.' So wish me luck as I pursue this endeavor. But tell me, should I give him a gift card with it... as it's what he wants anyway, or what do you think?
