I’ve been sick for much of the summer and the beginning of fall so knitting just has not been happening. I am now ready to start my holiday knitting and pray I have enough time to get what I want done. Here’s what’s been doing.
Here’s a picture of the finished object from the pattern page on Ravelry. There are several and definitely worth a look.
I was supposed to be a tester for this pattern and while I gave input, I misread the instructions and did it the wrong way, then I did it the wrong way again, and finally I got it right. Here’s my meager shawl.
I’m still going to be plugging away at it but Christmas knitting is on the horizon so it may take a back seat for a while along with my sleeping Hitchhiker and Desolation of Smaug Mystery Knit-a-long.
Magic Yarn Ball Swap
I was treated very kindly as always and got some marvelous yarns. Two skeins of Malabrigo Lace in Sealing Wax, A skein of Tosh Sock in Gossamer, mini skeins for my sock yarn blanket, and some other goodies as well.
As usual I have probably bitten off more than I can chew and some of these will be new year’s presents, but who is keeping count?
Color Affection for someone. Here’s the finished object.
Here are the colors I’m using in Tosh Merino Light – Nutmeg, Golden Hickory, and Oak.
And two mystery projects because I don’t know if their intended recipients read here or not.
I also have matching sweaters I want to make my kids and a sock yarn monkey I want to make for my nephew. We’ll see how much I can get done. I’ll be knitting a gauge swatch for one of the mystery gifts tomorrow. If you haven’t already, like my page on Facebook and keep up with what’s on the needles. TTFN!
