An FO! Three FO to be exact! Although not quite in time for husband to take all three to the golf course on Saturday, I did technically meet the Saturday deadline. I finished the last one by the time he got home.
Woot woot! After a mad scramble to knit those things as fast as possible, I can return to my regularly scheduled programming. As I mentioned earlier, this week is all about the Christmas stockings. I’m down to my final 3, which is kind of exciting. I’m even starting to get a plan on how to design these final ones; well okay, I have a plan for one of them. Dad’s will have a TARDIS with snowflakes/stars all around it. Mom’s will be pretty (whatever that means; I haven’t really gotten a handle on that one yet). Youngest brother’s will … no idea. He’s not been much help in that department either.
Unfortunately, today all I can do is design. A certain friendly but oh-so mischievous little kitten decided that my size 8 circs were a fun chew toy. After quite a bit of work, looks like, she bit right through and dragged one around the house. Couldn’t have been easy to drag around, knowing her, but still. So last week I ordered 8 inch dpns in size 6 and 8 for the projects. I know, I still have interchangeable needles, but I’m really not getting the hang of magic loop. It drives me bonkers. If I can help it, I stick with dpns.
So after designing, I can get back to my final fingerless glove! I have about 2 more inches on that project until I increase for the hand (and do a proper thumb this time), which means I’m nearly finished. Ooh I love how squishalicious that yarn is, too. I find myself pausing between rounds just to feel the yarn. I love it.
The other project that must get done this week is a special present for a certain friend whose birthday is this week. I can’t go into details because she actually does see this blog, but I know exactly what it’ll be. I just have to get cracking on it as I need it tomorrow. I also have to make 4 s’mores brownies by tomorrow as well, so fun Monday!
How was your weekend? Ready for Thanksgiving?
