Well, having looked at my list I would say I have done well.
I have completed:
- wrap and two pairs of socks for my mum
- sweater for my dad (see pictures of it on me below - we are the same size)
- mittens for my step-mom
- head wrap for my sister-in-law
- pair of socks for friend
- scarf for father-in-law
- wash clothes
- miscellaneous gifts not to be mentioned before the knit group's Christmas party :)
Of course, most of these items are already being wrapped without being photographed, but at this time of year I just don't remember everything I should. (For instance, today I forgot to check on the hot lunch volunteers. As one of the coordinators today was my day to do that. I forgot. No volunteer showed up. Teachers handed out the pizza. Oops.)So now it is a week before Christmas. The one big project still on my needles is my sister-in-law's sweater. I do have the back finished and a good start on the front, but this might wait for her birthday in February, as I don't feel the urge to speed knit it. Or I might just give it to her in the New Year. We'll see where we get with it.
I do want to make some hats for a friend's family as well.
front of the cycling aran. I see the zip is crooked on me, but you can see the lovely fit and the stand up collar here. I hand sewed the zip in. Also note the lovely cables up each side, although in heathered charcoal they are hard to photograph!
the 3 by 2 ribbed back. Perfect for a snug fit while cycling in our west coast wet winters!
