What am I working on this week?
Well, Christmas knitting of course!
On Saturday night, I decided that most of the gifts I’ll be giving this year will be knit. What does this mean exactly? Today, I created a list which is wayyyyyy longer than I anticipated. I knew I was going to knit a sweater dress for my daughter as it is already started but hmm, maybe the socks she’s been asking for as well. Then I thought about my side of the family. My brother could use a hat, his fiance could use another hat and mittens, maybe my mom would like a hat and scarf, well hmm how about my nephew, he could use a sweater and mittens, my sister-in-law asked for a pair of socks, and so it went. I think the list ended up with 14 things on it. Holy moly! That will NOT be happening before Christmas. Oh and, I have some commissioned knits that are also due before the end of the year. We shall see what I get done by the end of the year.
Currently on the needles:
Flax by Tin Can Knits in Plymouth Encore in three colors and to add just a little more interest there is an arrowhead lace detail on the sleeves. It is being knit in the 8-10 year old size with size US 8 (5mm) for the ribbing and US 9 (5.5mm) for the body. The colors are almost accurate. The dark color is actually a plum not a navy as my screen is showing but the other two are pretty true to color.
