Falling behind on my posts, I mean.
First, I’ve been in stealth mode because the knitting has been all about gifts lately. Then, I’ve been in rush, rush, rush mode to finish out the knitting, the school semester, and the holidays. But now I’d better take the opportunity of this last little bit of free time before I go back to work on Monday to get caught up.
The first week in December was Holly’s school baby shower. Although I’d already knit her a stuffed dog (see previous post), I had to have something useful to give at the shower, right? So enter Orange Flower’s Garter Rib Baby Blanket.
Even though I spilled coffee on it at one point during the knitting, it came out of its bath fine and worked up nice and soft in the end.
[Note, the top picture is more accurate for color; the bottom was taken at night in bad lighting.]
Also early in December was our school secretary’s birthday. She’d been coveting my handwarmers, so you can guess what she got.
I think she’s pretty happy with them.
Finally, almost all of my knitting time between Thanksgiving and Christmas was spent on this gorgeous pink stuff.
It’s KnitPicks Shine Worsted in Blush and it became this, Angela Hahn’s Primrose Path for my mom’s Christmas present.
That’s about it. Oh, except for a couple of Honey Cowls, which I’ll have pictures of if a certain college student remembers to take them. And some leg warmers if a certain mom remembers to take the picture. And a couple of other things, which should be finished soon . . . (Wait, I was supposed to be caught up?!?!)
In the mean time, Happy New Year to you and yours.
