This year I feel like the holidays are approaching faster than previous years. Or maybe I wasn’t as organized as last year. Or perhaps it is because now that I’m in Texas, my bio-rhythm doesn’t believe that 67 degree weather belongs in December. (Seriously, it’s hard for me to reconcile the weather to the calendar date. I still ‘feel’ like it should be early September, which would mean that I was doing great with my knitting instead of feeling hopelessly behind.)
I thought I was doing pretty well on my knitting list. But then the more I looked at Versatility they more I didn’t like it. I like the pattern, but I do not have the time to order new yarn and knit it up before Christmas. My mom also requested a sweater the other day, and that is just not going to happen. I wouldn’t mind knitting it, but again, I’d have to order yarn and then knit it. Plus, I like to get input on what kind of sweater (cardi vs pullover, cables/lace/plain, ease, etc) a person wants before pouring many hours of my time into something that could end up in the back of the closet.
Since the last update, I’ve finished a few more things and started some others.
Here’s a photo of the two Kate kitties sitting side by side:
I also finished up some longies for H. They are getting much tougher to whip out quickly with a 12″ inseam.
And here’s a mosaic of some Christmas ornaments I’ve knit up:
The wee little stripy sock is my favorite. I knit it out of a mini-skein of Yarn Pirate sock yarn and it just turned out so super cute. I also want to make a me-sized version of the red sweater.
Stay tuned for more, including some Etsy purchases.
