So what did I end up getting done for Christmas? What do you make when you are in a rush? How about a modified pair of Selbu fingerless mitts? (Ha, Ha)
I made these for The Daughter. You just never know what she is going to like so I am always a little nervous making something really "different" for her. However, these got squeals of delight and rave reviews--whew!
The next thing I managed to finish--one of a kind "Mom I want you to make me these gloves I thought up. I want them to be black and lime green checkered, with......"
They turned out really cute and PB has worn them almost non-stop. He was so excited to get them. He loves everything I knit for him.
It wasn't much but at least I got to give them something special from me. HB got the pair of "Outdoorsman" socks I made for the Sockamania November pattern. So everyone was happy.
On the Sockamania note, this is the new sock for January:
I love it! It is called "Snowy Winters Eve". I used Haneke merino/linen/aplaca for the navy blue main color and Haneke's angora blend for the white "snow". The socks are warm, soft and wonderful.
So, I made it through another "Christmas knitting craze". I am already making New Year's resolutions that THIS year will be different! I will start right away planning gifts to knit and I will dilligently work on them all through the year so that December doesn't sneek up on me again. (I think that is what I say every year).
Wishing everyone a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!
You appear to be a Knitting Guru. You love knitting and do it all the time. While finishing a piece is the plan, you still love the process, and can't imagine a day going by without giving some time to your yarn. Packing for vacation involves leaving ample space for the stash and supplies. It can be hard to tell where the yarn ends and you begin.http://marniemaclean.com Take this quiz!
