  1. Montego Bay scarf for friends birthday (end of November)
    Finished, and given. She loved it. Very Happy
  2. Montego Bay scarf for friends birthday (end of December)
    Finished apart from blocking and the fringe
  3. Pair of frilled gloves for Christmas (to match Montego Bay 2)
    First glove is finished, and half way up on the palm of the second
  4. Mobile phone sock for Christmas
    Not yet started
  5. Washcloth for MIL
    Finished
  6. Washcloth for SIL
    Not yet started
  7. Gift for Knitted Gift swap
    Finished
  8. Felted bag for Christmas (which I decided to knit before I went away!)
    Finished, apart from being run through the washing machine to felt.


I will felt the bag today, and hopefully make good progress on the second glove as well. I can't start the mobile phone sock until I've finished the gloves, as I'm using the leftover yarn for it.

The second washcloth will probably be started on Friday, and hopefully finished on Saturday. If not, I can work on it up until Christmas afternoon.

As if I didn't have enough to do already, I also decided that I wanted to finish my bolero to wear to our works Christmas lunch yesterday. I finished the knitting at the beginning of the month, but put off the seams to the last minute (I finished the last one at 10pm the night before!).

Oh, the Irony!

I stayed up until 4am finishing the presents. Now they are going to sit at least until next weekend as Weather Channel is blasting out about a blizzard.

The tree will go up today, I may finish Ezra's dino just because the small portion of my brain that is still functional has the sculpting procedures fairly fresh. Other than that, I have a new Temaraire novel and I am going to read. (Going to sleep is not going to happen unless I doze off in the recliner with the book.)

At the moment I am going to throw on some clothes and pick up snowed in supplies at the grocery store before it gets bad.


The hoody. I did a picot edging on the hood and omitted the pom-poms from the cord. Pom-poms never fare well in the laundry. The buttons are really sweet, they are Beatrix Potter characters and they do not all match. (Other than the fact they are physically the same button, of course) They kind of fade into the sweater in this photo, though.


The baby dinosaurs.



The stuff I finished last night, or this morning.

Good for you. Very Happy I'm sure that everything will go down well when you see them.

I used to have Beatrix Potter buttons on a cardigan when I was younger. I loved them, and loved to read the stories.

I worked a few rows on Dad's socks today, but if I sit still too long, I fall asleep. Embarassed Baring a knitting miracle, the socks will not be done in the next 10 days.

We put up the tree today. My daughter and her friend decided to go Christmas shopping for her 7 year old so he came over for a sleep over and did most of the ornament hanging. DD's car refused to start when she went to leave from dropping him off. Her fiance, who works on cars for a living, seems to think it might be the starter. She was going to drive on our little road trip, it's just as well we didn't go. Car trouble AND blizzard conditions at the same time on the interstate would have put us all out of the Christmas spirit.

I have beef veggie soup on the stove -- it seemed like a soup day.

I just finished the last Babysaur. Now to get back to my knitting.

Part of me is a bit disapointed that I didn't finish my list, but I did finish the three sweaters in time and I'll get a bit more done on the socks before Christmas.

Yvonne - your projects are beautiful. They should be appreciated by all.

Frances - you did a terrific job on the hoodie! (I'm still fussing away on mine), and the dinosaurs are so cute. Don't be ashamed about falling asleep. It has to happen sometime. Last night I was watching the Steelers game and knitting. Jim was working on the computer behind the recliner. Pretty soon, he didn't hear any needle clicking and found me soundly out. Gee, I wonder why that hoodie isn't getting done????
