I've done it!

well.. nearly! I'm pretty damn close... I have about an hours worth of work on dad's arm warmers than I'm completely done for the Christmas day stuff! I have also finished 1 of the needed socks for our trip to Seattle.

I'm very proud of myself, and I will be knitting a nice par of socks for ME as soon as all this is over!

knitting along...

So, I'm not done, but I may still make it! The key here is disjointed holiday gatherings. I only need 5 things done for the actual Christmas day. 2 of which are completely finished, 1 that is 75% done, 1 50% done and 1 not started (But is a quick knit and could be abandoned if needed). Then I have rthe trip to Seattle where 6 presents are needed. 2 could be put off until returned home. 2 are finished (stretching a point for a couple little heels....) and 2 are started and each is 25% done. and one gift for sunday which is finished.

So thats 12 presents, 5 finished, 4 started and 3 not yet started.

Wish me luck! I've got to get back to the knitting. If I finish things I'll attempt to take pictures!

Everything Started....

I believe I have started all my major knitting for christmas. I just haven't finished much! There are two pair of socks which haven't been cast on yet. But I've picked the yarn... that counts as starting, right?
Here's the fast picture montage, because I obviously need to get back to knitting! Less than 10 knitting days left!

Here are those stripy socks almost done.

Here is a binary hat with binary initials. I'm just closing in the top.

OH Shit. Here is the pile of stuff I'm still working on!

No more blogging! I need to knit!

Sweater Pictures

You asked. I comply.
My first sweater for ME! Finished!

Pictures taken at a holiday party last night (I wanted to wear the sweater at the party so much that I brought it with me and knit the sleeves during the party!

Everyone seemed a little too plastered to take pictures of it for me so I used their big bathroom mirror....

I'm very happy with it, its very soft and warm and it FITS!
