It seems to be the season of biweekly posting. I guess this is what it’s going to be for a while. We’ve been busy getting ready for Christmas. The Christmas crafting is in full force. Babygirl has completed her ornaments for family so we can get them in the mail. We’re both finishing up some gifts so we can get them in the mail soon.
It’s a windy, rainy day here so we plan to put the tree up. Decorating the tree will wait until we see how “the puppy” reacts to it.
Babygirl’s Fall Socks are done. she has already worn them a few times.
I’ve completed the knitting on my Stripey socks. I need to Kitchener the toe and add afterthought heels to complete the pair. it’s on the list of things to do this week.
Christmas socks have been started for Sockmas. I’m making a pair using Cascade Heritage in a Christmas colorway. I’ve misplaced the band, will update the colorway when I find it. Sockmas is a KAL hosted by Knitty Natty. It runs from November 25th to December 16th.
This is my focus. I’ve got three more inches before I can start the decrease. I’m hoping to finish it this week so it’s ready to go in the mail.
A few months ago I purchased two skeins of Sewrella’s Autumn in New York Collection. It arrived a few days ago. I plan to use it to make a shawl in the New Year. I’m still trying to figure out what pattern I want to make. Open to two skein fingering weight shawl patterns if you’ve got any to recommend. The colorway Brooklyn reminds me of home, so I chose that and Sweater Weather because it went well with Brooklyn.
Last week I also received a prize I won from a Patreon group I’m in.
I’ve also received my Sock Advent yarn from Cozy Knitter. I’m still waiting on my Advent calendar. I’m really hoping it gets here in time. It’s cutting it a bit too close for my liking.
I think that’s about it. Happy Crafting!
