Christmas Knitting

I have one of three gifts done now, YAY!! I am currently working on a cowl for my 10 yr old. Then I have one more to go for her. That will be the extent of my Christmas knitting this year. My best friend's shawl is done, I just need to block it. I am going to make the same shawl for myself, and can't wait to start it, but have to wait til Christmas AND birthday knitting are done, sinec my daughter's birthday is a month after Christmas.

My daughter picked out my BMFA Sugarplums color way for her Christmas presents. Her birthday present is a Dofuku kimono sweater. It's in a blue and purple colorway, and it's absolutely gorgeous.

Sweater KAL

Well I was told last Friday that I am no longer allowed to knit at work when I did NOTHING wrong and that bugs the crap out of me. I was knitting during downtime, UGH. I had nothing to do last friday during a staffing of an individual where I work. Since I couldn't knit I sat in the office bored out of my mind for an hour. I did have the sweater for knitting with me but didn't dare knit on it since my PM was at the staffing and I was told I couldn't knit so I sat in the office and did NOTHING, which was so boring. I mean I could have probably gotten on the comptuer and looked up patterns to knit but didn't because I don't want to break any rules. So the only time I'm knitting anything is when I am at home or at my parents. I am almost done wiht the back of the sweater though, and then it's on to teh two fronts and sleeves. It is going fast but it's boring knitting now.
