I’ve settled on most of my Christmas knitting gifts. To add to the pressure of having no time, no money and lots of knitting to do, I’m posting my knitting list and progress (or lack of) here. That way as we get closer, readers can heckle and shame me into staying up all night to finish what I said I would do.
Christmas stockings: We didn’t have Christmas stockings as a tradition in my house when we were growing up. I envied all the kids with the wee things that Santa found for their stockings. I’m knitting stockings for Thomas, Adam and me. And maybe the cat. The way he’s behaving, though, I’m sure it will be full of coal.
Sweater for Adam: I have a great book outlining sweaters knit from the top down. I’ve started a button up cardigan for Adam.
Market Bags for my mother-in-law and sister-in-law: Hopefully, easy-breezy.
Hat for my brother: He shaves his head. I figure he needs a hat.
I’m browsing patterns for ideas for my other brother, my mother and Thomas. I think my niece and nephew are old enough to notice handknits are not what the other kids are wearing and not old enough to realize knitting is AWESOME.
Anyhoo, back to the knitting!
