A Christmas card to my blog readers:
In fact, here have two!
Made by my little sister’s fair hands. Aren’t they gorgeous?
It seems that a good portion of the knitting blogs I’ve been reading are full of people panicking about christmas knitting. Well consider this blog a christmas gift knitting free zone! After knitting on Christmas morning last year and less than enthusiastic reaction from my family I’ve decided not to do it this year. I knitted a lot for birthdays this year, but I’ve usually finished things too late for the actual day and I have not been really sure how people really have felt about the item they’ve been given.
I have too many projects I want to do and designs/patterns to be working on so no more gift knitting – selfish knitting from here on in!
Most of what I’ve been knitting lately is unbloggable. Lots of sample garment knitting and pattern writing and calculations. So I don’t really have much to write about for now. Beaufort the third is progressing nicely and is a good company for lunch time and movie/telly knitting. I think I’m nearly ready to cast on for either Tangled Yoke or Thermal and can’t decide which one to do first.
But for now it’s back to writing christmas cards.
