Are you sitting here on Christmas Eve still frantically stitching away on gifts?
Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. You are not alone in wrapping a present that is still on the hook or needle.
To help you out, we’re providing this handy letter you can present along with the unfinished garment.
This year we’ve made hand images you can print and fill in the blanks!
Click on the image of the version you want (knit or crochet, or both!). This will change the screen so you see a bigger version. Print the letter as you normally would.
As for those unfinished gifts…you can start earlier next year!
Please Accept This Unfinished Gift
My Dearest [insert loved ones name]:
Enclosed please find the [scarf/hat/socks/gloves/sweater] I’ve been making for you. The yarn and project were carefully selected with you in mind.
It isn’t finished because my ambition outstripped my [knitting/crocheting] time.
Please know that I’ve spent many evenings of late, thinking of you fondly, as I worked on this project. There is love in every stitch.
I know you are disappointed that you won’t get to start using it right away. Believe me so am I! There is nothing that makes a [knitter/crocheter] as happy as seeing the [scarf/hat/socks/gloves/sweater] they made put to good use.
Now that you’ve admired your present, please return it to me so I can get back to work. I can’t tell you when it will be done, but I promise it will be soon. Definitely before next [insert gift giving occasion]!
All my love,
[your name here]
