Knitting update
I’m working on lots of things at the moment.

  • I’ve seamed up one shoulder of the Baby Surprise Jacket, so I have to do the other one and sew on the buttons.
  • I’m making a red mohair beret out of some stashed yarn I have, so I have something pretty and warm to wear in New York in January – I think it will have a matching scarf too! I couldn’t find a pattern I absolutely loved so I’m kinda just making it up. So far so good – about halfway through!
  • There’s a little purple preemie beanie sitting staring at me from my desk that needs to be finished too… just need to figure out how to stop the stitches at the ends of each DPN being so loose, its not looking that great.
  • We had a craft day with some ladies from church on the weekend and we've now knit enough squares for three small baby blankets for Casa Kiwi! They need to be sewn together.
  • I knit up a cotton bath mitt last night, as something I might be able to sell –unfortunately it’s a little too big but again I was making up the pattern, so I know what to fix for the next one.
  • Speaking of selling, I have to get my A into G, a craft fair is coming up the first week of September and someone has offered to sell my stuff there, so I have to get a move on with lots of knitting and sewing for this! I have visions of tote bags floating around in my head…
  • That Buttony sweater is now my new lunchtime project – I’m managing at least two rows per break, because there are so many stitches, but slow and steady wins the race – at least I’m working on it again!
  • I’ve been reminded that its about 130 days until Christmas, so I’m thinking about Christmas knitting in the back of my head… probably not a lot this year, since I’m going away, but who knows!

What’s on your to-do list? Have you started thinking about your Christmas knitting?

~Happy knitting!~

Oh my gosh, I am really freaking out about my X-mas knitting. This is the first year I will experience as a knitter (having started only last year), and I feel like I have to make something for EVERYONE. I really want to expand and practice more cabling, so I'm waiting to use up all my stash on cabled fingerless gloves, a few hats, and maybe even a cowel/scarf if I can find the time. And I *know* people like my mom and grandma expect sweaters and shrugs...ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

130 days until Christmas?? AAAAHHHHH How can that be? It's feels like 100 freaking degrees here, so the last thing on my mind is Christmas!!

But anyway, yes, New York in January definitely needs a hat and scarf. And thick gloves or mittens too!!

I'm going to use OTT for my next MeMe Monday. :)
