Knitting Up A Storm!

Tuesday, December 05, 2006

It is unbelievable how busy people are in December, and my family is just as busy as the next. Yesterday I finished my Christmas shopping and now I have to wrap all those freaking gifts. What a pain. Using up a vacation day to check this chore off my list is well worth it. The malls were pretty much empty, hardly any line ups and I am freaking done. Woo hoo. Enough bragging for today.

Knitting content? Not much, but some. The Christmas gift mittens are done and only need a bit of weaving in, the clapotis is blocked and I have to weave in the ends. I started a pair of thrummed mittens from the Interweave Winter 2006 magazine for a friend. These are whippping up quite quickly, unlike my last pair which felt like a huge chore to finish. The IK pattern seems to be a big easier and quicker. I'll try to snag a photo because they are turning out nicely if I do say so myself. Once the thumb is done, I all immediately cast on for the 2nd.

Have a good one folks.
