A gaggle of Socks finished on Boxing Day and ready to hit the mail today. I'm pretty sure they won't fit now that Christmas is done but they'll make spectacular handpuppets one day....
By the time Christmas Day came along I was dying to be knitting something that didn't involve feet or fitting someone else. Keeping in line with with my new year goal of making a sweater with sleeves that fit I have finished the back and half of the front of my Klaralund sweater in Noro. Man that stuff is dreamy although the mysterious stripe of pink at the bottom of the picture has me puzzled.
And got halfway through one pattern of my first intarsia work. Dear lord I don't know if I could love any baby enough to do this again - it's like weightlifting for the fingers...we'll see if it gets done for March. I'm loving the newness of it all right now but I think we know that by the last pattern of the blanket the speed with which I knit and the speed that time passes will be completely out of whack. It's pretty fun right now though.
A couple of friends are coming over for board games and booze tonight. Between the knitting and the board game fascination have I completely lost my hard living edge?
Tune in New Years Eve to find out!!
