12/15/06: Since December Isn't Over Yet...I won't put that month up in the review until it is. So for now in order to try and keep with having something here more often I shall share another pair of socks I knitted this month as a St. Nicholas secret swap. These were knit using Regia Banner Stripes yarn. Probably the fastest thing I knit all year because somehow I managed to get them done in under a week.
I also started knitting the cabled jacket in Debbie Bliss's Cashmerino DK book along with Carolyn. Some super slow going on this baby cause I am no good at remembering cables and memorizing charts but so far I am really liking it. I made the chunky cabled jacket of hers and while I love it, it is a little too warm for most occasions so am hoping this one will be more used in the end. I have only done 2 other projects with Debbie Bliss yarn so far and one was with cashmerino baby, one with cashmerino super chunky, and now of course cashmerino dk. All of these done in the same baby blue color, boring aren't I? Also I am sad to report that at the moment I am a little stalled out on this sweater, but I guess that is mostly due to gift knitting so what can I do?
12/07/06: I Will be Knitting for ChristmasAnd I am way behind as usual! So here are some older Finished items for you to peruse in the meantime.
There are a couple baby hats I made for my cousin. They are very funny I think and she is due any day!
And these are the socks I made her mom to keep her feet warm. Hope they are working. I used Koigu yarn for these, which reminds me that I really need to make myself another koigu pair since it is the best yarn on the feet!
I had another pair of socks I recently finished for a secret santa gift, but I do not seem to have the photo uploaded yet, so they shall appear at a later time.
But yeah as for the christmas knitting, I keep starting stuff and having to rip, not cool. So cross your fingers that I can get at least some of it done. How many things am I making you ask? Um, let me see here, 8 items plus one for a wee bit after the deadline. And none are finished, and really what was I thinking? Um, yeah I think the same thing every year now that I knit. I think it is possible and no problem, and most of the time I get pretty close but at the moment count me nervous and behind!
