Sorry I’ve been quiet, but there hasn’t been much to say.
I was so excited to have two weeks off and to have my mom visiting for one of those weeks. I should have known not to get excited!!!
It has been either snowing or -15 for the past two weeks. My mom and I couldn’t even do anything fun:(. She couldn’t even come over to my house and just hang out:(. What a waste of a holiday!
It has led to a lot of crafting time and I will be going into the new year with a lot less projects.
3 project bags were made- two were gifted to the ladies I knit with and I kept one. I really love the fabric that it is made of!
2 advent cowls were completed with my Wool Interrupted advent calendar. I really wasn’t sure about this calendar and yet it turned out to be my favourite. I love how it created a rainbow so the colours go together. I am finding the advent calendars that seem completely random to be difficult to knit up. I have enough yarn leftover that both of my sisters in law will get a cowl for their birthdays this year, though I think I’ll leave the white stripes out.
A cowl that I am not super happy with, but that will go into the gift basket. I just don’t love how it fits on me. I like them more drapey than this!
I redid my nephew’s Musselburgh hat for his Christmas present and hope that I now have it the right size. After knitting this toque three times, I’m done with it!
My oldest nephew has requested a scarf in his school colours. He went to the store and picked the yarn with me and he was amazed when he had a scarf for Christmas less than a week later. I didn’t enlighten him that with worsted weight yarn, it really doesn’t take long to finish a simple scarf!
The final project that had to be knitted got finished today. This is an Afghan for my close friend. It is meant to be her housewarming, birthday and Christmas presents. It was super simple to make, but absolutely ate yarn!
This was the end of my gift knitting and I have to admit I’m sitting here happily imagining all the things I am going to knit for me😀
I will have one more big finish to show for this holiday, but it won’t be done until tomorrow.
There you have my holiday!
