I’m trying really hard to stay focused on just a couple of knitting projects, though I struggle mightily with the desire to Cast On All The Things. Must be the cold, rainy weather. I have a good bit of my gift knitting done, but not all – so I need to stay on task and stop browsing Ravelry…
Today I’m working on a Christmas stocking, and just started the heel. The stocking is turning out a bit larger than I expected, but that’s OK – more room for stuff! Since it is larger, though, I was running out of the red yarn so I had to get another skein, overriding my vow to buy no more yarn this year. (Yarn purchases don’t count when they are for a gift-in-progress.)
That pattern is from “Knit Christmas Stockings!”, from which I’ve made several. It’s a great book.
I’m about half done with this gift cowl (it’s farther along now than in this pic). Lovely Shibui yarn in a denim/periwinkle color, it’s soft and squishy.
And it’s not a gift, but I gotta keep working on my Temperature Scarf so I don’t get behind. Lots of green lately, but yesterday was pretty chilly and I think I get to break out the blue. Debating whether I want a special stripe to denote the month-end.
