Christmas knitting complete

I've gotten everything I'm knitting done for the holidays.    My aunt's getting the shawl my mom wanted me to knit is now a birthday gift.   

I'm knitting myself a trail blazer jacket.    The back & left front are done.   I need to unseam it tomorrow when I hopefully have the right front done as well.   I got the left front and back reseamed. So now all I have left to do tonight during Grey's & Scandal is work on the right front.

Christmas Knitting 2013

Oh dear it's been a whisk since I've updated my blog.    It's been crazy busy & just plain crazy in my life.

Ok Christmas knitting.....Dad's gift is done.   Clockwork by Stephen West.
Mom's gift is a shawl she saw at sheep & wool in September.   It's on then edging. Aunt Laurie is getting dish cloths.   That's about all I have planned for Christmas knitting right now considering Christmas is a month & a half away!

Garter stitch monogamy

I started Scott's birthday present yesterday. Back in September Dennis & I went to the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool festival. I bought to patterns; both by Steven West. I got the clockwork scarf & daybreak shawl patterns.

I had decided on colors for Scott's clockwork as well as one for my dad. Apparently my brain took a vacation when ordering yarn because I ordered the colors I was going to do my dad's clockwork in. I'm almost done with the first section & it needs to be done by February 4th.

Before I started the clockwork scarf, I got a bee in my bonnet about knitting a Christmas tree skirt. Oh yes, I can now use it as a lap blanket while knitting on it. I didn't expect it to be done before Christmas. I put it aside to knit Scott's gift. I will more than likely go back to it when the clockwork is done.
