I had great plans to do lots of holiday knitting. Managed to get a project done by Thanksgiving, even (see Christmas Mittens). Was going to knit a few hats, some wrist warmers and maybe a hot water bottle cozy. Heh.
I’ve got one hat done — meant for someone else but due to a yardage shortage (my fault) it is now adorning my own head. I needed a new hat anyway.
Have the back and almost front of a cute sweater for a cute kid that lives in KY. You’d think sleeves for a 6 month-old wouldn’t be too difficult! (Beth, if you don’t want to be surprised, let me know and I’ll post pictures.)
Tried a hot water bottle cozy with bulky yarn that I’ve had sitting around for ages. Couldn’t figure out my pattern-of-my-own-making out and abandoned ship before getting too frustrated. Bought a cute hot water bottle cozy (hand-made) on etsy.
Have another hat half done, but while knitting decided on a different gift for the recipient. That saves time!
Started a sock to go with a mate I finished back in May. It’s toe-up — still working the toe increases. No Christmas socks this year…
Cast on for my mom’s birthday present (her birthday was in November). This is meant to be my in-flight vacation knitting so I’m not feeling too bad about not being further along, but still…there’s not much there yet.
Maybe if I had two hours at once during which I could sit and knit I’d actually make progress on something. Ha. That’s a funny one.
If there was any decent daylight, I’d take and post some pictures. Striking out there as well. Maybe this weekend?
(Can anyone tell I need a vacation?)
