Behold my Christmas present.
No further words are needed, but that’s never stopped me before. Actually, I knew I was getting it. I picked it out. I watched the lovely sales lady at Holly Bee Yarns demonstrate how to use it. I carried it to the car. Then I had to give it back to Dad so he could wrap it up and give it to me for Christmas which we didn’t have with my family until Thursday. It was a long wait. I’m trying to make up for lost time.
This is as far as I got. After I wound a skein of the Knit Picks Sock Landscape, I had to start knitting with it. This yarn puts most of what I have in the Sock Yarn Hall o' Shame. This is soft. Really soft. It’ll will have to be hand washed, but it will be oh so worth it.
My poor sister. I have more unfinished knits for her than you could shake a knitting needle at. Add another to the collection. Her sweater sits in a box. Fronts, back, but no sleeves. My code turned into more than a code and I’ve done very little knitting other than small mindless projects. Other knits were finished. My SIL loved her scarf- it’s the first she’s ever owned. Not much scarf weather in Florida. She had to buy a coat here because she couldn't find one there. I'll have to knit her another one to go with her new coat.
I finished a purse for my niece. It’s on its way to Florida to be gifted. But guess what. Looking through my archives, I found that I knit her a purse last year. Doh. I came across the yarn I dyed and thought I must have forgotten it. I didn’t. Now she has two.
I even finished a present for me. I spent most of the day Wednesday waiting to see a doctor who took a quick glance at me, declared me sick, wrote prescriptions, and sent me on my way. I finished the toe of sock #1 and half of sock #2 in the waiting room, the rest watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy Thursday while the rest of my family gathered at my parents house for food and fun and gift giving and more food and more fun. At least I have socks.
I should devote January to finishing DS’s knits. I really should.
Happy New Year to all!
