2.5 Done - 3 More Started - 18.5 to Finish...
My Xmas 2006 knitted gift list, of course. So what does the gibberish headline mean?
2.5 done - that's how many gifts I have finished already
3 more started - that's how many more I have started and are in my knitting bag
18.5 to finish - that's how many more I still have to finish
I have the yarn for all projects and I put two huge bins in my room - one bin is now full of yarn and the other bin is pretty empty. It should hold at some point all the knitted gifts. I can see you shaking your head just now... You know, I just want to not get stressed out this year and so I am being just a little anal at this point. I'll loosen up eventually. ;-) Here are the FO's:
Yarn: Knitpicks Crayon
Color: Red and Yellow
Needles: US #5
Yarn: Knitpicks Wool of the Andes and Suri Dream
Color: Rain and Blue Bonnet, Blueberry (Suri Dream)
Needles: US #11
Yarn: Patons Kroy Socks (Double-stranded)
Color: Flagstone and Windsor Tweed
Needles: US #6
Sock No. 2 is on the way. Don't let me get Second Sock Syndrome. ;-)
The new projects I started are:
Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Socketta and Fun Fur (for the cuff)
Color: No. 30 - blue, yellow, pink, lime
Needles: US #1
I also started the Four Corners Hat and the English Garden Felted Carpetbag, but I have no pictures yet, sorry.
But wait, I have more FO's... Well, you know me - I knit all the time, except when I have to work or drive or sleep...
So, I made a black cotton beach beanie for myself. For any bad hair day coming my way - black is one of my favorite colors.
You see me standing in front of one of our framed jigsaw puzzles. Yes, hubby and I have a huge collection of famous paintings, hehehe... Actually, the jigsaw puzzle collection is hubby's hobby and it's HUGE. His stash is definitely bigger than mine! ;-)
I also added a second Mason-Dixon dishcloth to the first one. Both went to my Yahoo! Dishcloth pal in Canada.
Let me ask you something. I don't know if you have pets. We have two dogs. One of them is a Border Collie, which means she is SUPER ACTIVE. ;-) This is how Hermione tries to make me stop knitting and play with her. Any recommendations on how to not stop knitting and pet the poor, pitiful, neglected, furry child?
Enough YADA, YADA, YADA... Have a great Thursday!!
