This evening, when I got home from work, I looked at my stash and then looked at my pile of knitted items that aren't finished. I grabbed the 2 hats I started last month and finished the decreases, so they can be crossed off my "to do" list.
|Knotty but Nice made for myself. Bad lighting is bad.|
|Who? made for the Angel Tree at work. (again trying to get better lighting)|
Next up will be finally finishing my February Lady Sweater that I started in the beginning of the year. It's pretty funny, I started it at the end of February and at this rate, it will be completed in February as well. All I really need to do is knit the last sleeve, wash it, block it and sew on the buttons. The problem? I seem to have misplaced the pattern I was using when I was working with it last year, so I'm not 100% sure which size I chose to knit. I guess since it is just the 2nd sleeve, I can count the stitches and go from there. Ideally, I would love to have it done by Christmas so I can wear it on Christmas day. The yarn I chose was Currant from Knit Picks. It's a dark maroon and I think it would look festive enough. :D
I think the rest of my evening will be spent with a mug of tea, some CSI and the finishing touches on my monster that I need to send out by Monday for the Monster Ornament Swap.
I will leave you all with this question. Do any of you give knitted/crafted gifts for the holidays? If so, do you go all out or just go with smaller items?
