Even though we have all the other preceding months warning us of December’s arrival, suddenly, it’s here and the crazy Christmas knitting marathon begins.
On a whim I decided this year that I would indulge in some Christmas knitting. If I had this idea in um…July, it would have been great. It’s crunch time now and I’m still 6 Christmas knits short and I keep getting more “requests” everyday from family that they would “really, really, really love a handknit gift this year please, please, please”! I just can’t say no to this sort of plea which is why I have been knitting like a crazy woman.
I finished a pair of Fetching mitts using Malabrigo Silky Merino. Crazy soft! I took this picture when I was half way through the knitting, but trust me, the pair is done. I just have to steam block and weave in the ends and this project will be 100% complete, woot woot!
Then there’s this project I’ve been knitting for the hubster. (No specific deets or pictures yet because he reads my blog sometimes) I’m torn about this design because I don’t know if it will work for a guy. Although, the yarn is swoon-worthy Madelinetosh Eyre so maybe I could pull this off? Let’s see, I will go to Plan B if this goes south. At this point, I don’t have a Plan B, eeep!!
So, do you have any Christmas knitting plans?
