Checking My List Twice

December 17, 2014 3 Comments

I'm still plugging away at my Christmas knits. Ok, that's a little bit of an understatement. I'm kind of frantically knitting every spare second, but a sick kid and a lot of snuggles on the couch mean I have a little more time than I originally thought -- which only means I'm ADDING to my list instead of subtracting. Not smart, remember I said I surrendered? I lied. Sorry, it wasn't intentional I just can't help myself! So here's the original list
  • An afghan
  • 3 pairs of fingerless mitts
  • 3 cowls and or caplets
  • 2 pillows
  • a poncho
  • 2 toddler vests
  • a baby sweater
  • a Christmas sweater for Brooklyn
Here's the modified list
  • An afghan 2 afghans
  • 3 pairs of fingerless mitts
  • 3 cowls and or caplets 2 caplets
  • 2 pillows
  • a poncho
  • 2 toddler vests 1 toddler vest
  • a baby sweater
  • a toddler sweater
  • 2 tumbler cozies
  • a Christmas sweater for Brooklyn
Here's what's done! 2.5 pairs of fingerless mitts (only 1 mitt left to go!) 1 Toddler Vest 1 Toddler Sweater 1 Baby Sweater My "plans" for tonight are to finish that last fingerless mitt, knit the two coffee cup cozies, make a batch of hardtack (recipe and definition to come as a separate post) and make a batch of caramel corn.... I use the word "plan" loosely because I'm sure it won't all happen but I'll start with great intentions! Oh!  And I thought I was going to make a bunch of ornaments but I got one of them done and realized two things 1 - they're more work than they look like they wold be. Although they're very easy and rewarding they take just as much - if not more - time as a fingerless mitt. And second, they're way too cool to give away so we can add 1 completed ornament to the finished list but I'm keeping this one for myself! 192A7803 The finished baby sweater is the Camilla Babe pattern by Carrie Bostick Hoge. I made this one for myself  (adult size of course) and have plans to make another one for Brooklyn once Christmas is past. I was originally hoping to get one done by Christmas for her to wear but maybe New Years instead because it only took me 2 days to whip up this baby sweater! It's a highly recommended knit! Done on a US size 7 and in Nice & Knit Worsted it goes quick, it's super easy and oh-so-adorable! [gallery type="rectangular" link="none" ids="6921,6922,6920,6919"]
