Christmas knitting oy

I should've been done with my Christmas knitting by now, but in a few days I hope to be with gifts that need to be mailed.

Aly's elephant just needs eyes, dish cloths need to be finished.

Jen's sweater is almost done, body is almost done, just the sleeves& blocking left.

3/4 done

I have 3/4 of my Christmas knitting done. I am on the last little bit of Jenny's sweater. I then have dish cloths to do along with something for my little cousin. Thinking of a blanket for him. We'll see though.

Christmas knitting part 2

Started part 2 ofJen's gift & bought yarn for Aly's second gift. Went to the yarn shop because I left beaded & cabled cuff pattern there. I need to tinkle several repeats cause apparently I cannot read or remember things correctly. _

Christmas knitting

Christmas knitting is in high gear. It's another handmade gift year. Let's see: Aly - stuffed elephant (my daughter is obsessed with elephants) (done w/ the knittking need to put eyes on) Dad - dishcloths Scott - dishcloths Eric - dishcloths Bob & Jill - dishclths Leah - 198 yards of Heaven Mom - 198 yards of Heaven Jenny - Sedona sweater & pair of socks (I think) Will - sweater (done just needs to be blocked) Matthew - sweater (done just needs to be blocked) I will get Jenny's done soon I'm sure. The dishcloths are movie knitting & no big rush since I don't have to mail them out. I think along with the dishcloths I'll also make homemadde hot chocolate mix as well. I will also send a jar of that along with Jenny, Will & Matthew's sweaters & other gifts.

Shawl & sweater knitting

I haven't blogged in a while due to my grandfather passing away. I have frothed my shawl at least three times, but have finally gotten the hang of it (even with smaller needles than i it should be on at the moment - waiting for my Knitter's Pride size 7 tips to come).Sweater is my favorite pattern to date. I'm doing my second Sedona sweater for myself. It's being knit on US 6 & 7 needles. Coloresy is Cloud in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes. I have knit 3 of these so far. This sweater is being modified with a longer body & longer sleeves.

Hospital knitting

I've gotten a lot of knitting in over the last 9 days while staying with my grandfather while he's in the hospital. I finished my mom's Sedona sweater. I started my shawl for the shawrl KAL that the owner of. my lys is starting next month. I'm doing the Eyelets & Lace shawl in Hearthside Givers Star Dust yarn in the Teal we meet again colorway. So far so good. Love the hint of sparkle in the yarn. I was planning on socks for a knitting project, but right now the shawl is like a prayer shawl for me. I'm sure I'll knit a few more of this at some point.

consumed in knitting

I am not much of a monogamous knitted, but lately I have been. The only project I've been working on is my mom's sweater. Think my next project is some slippers. Although the Sedona pattern has become like potato chips. I will probably knit a longer one for myself with a longer collar. Although, I have 3 other sweaters to knit first.
