I really appreciate getting to have 2 very separate family Christmas’s, especially now that I knit things for both of them!
I made another pair of felted clogs (bringing the clog count to 7) to give to my SIL for Christmas. I think she liked them considering she put them on immediately, brought them to the Christmas Eve celebration that night and to Christmas the next day! You can look at the pictures here if you’re on Ravelry.
I also worked my mother’s socks. I’m doing the Floral Lace Anklets from Lace Style with Seacoast Handpainted Panda in colorway Sorbet. It’s very soft. The first sock took me 3 days and the second one will be about the same. I had about 2 inches of the cuff done before Christmas eve, but then I worked on it a bunch Monday and Tuesday and will finish the last approx. 3 inches tonight (wednesday).
I still have to felt & line the purse for my niece (Amanda’s Squatty Sidekick from Knitting Daily). So tonight I will felt, tomorrow I will sew the lining & Friday in the car I will sew the lining and button onto the bag. No problem.
I don’t know what I will start once those 2 projects are done. It’s both liberating and frustrating. I can knit anything I want, but I don’t know what it should be!
When I took off of work last Thursday I intended to get a bunch done. I did go shopping and I finished off all the presents I could, got a little knitting done and watched a movie with my husband. I’d say it was just productive enough ! 🙂
