About a month ago, I shared a list of knitted items I had hoped to finish by the end of the year. Let’s revisit this list:
Finish Mom’s cardigan. Due before October 31. Progress: One sleeve finished, the other sleeve half-finished, progress photos need to be taken and uploaded.SHAZAMISH. (reminder: waiting for my mom to try this on)
Finish my Leyburn socks. Due before November 12. Progress: One sock finished, other sock started and a few inches into the foot (they’re toe-up).BAZINGA. Finish my Bandelier socks. Due before November 27. Progress: One sock finished.BAM.
No photos yet, still weaving in all the ends, but I hope to do that and block them today and share finished object photos with you tomorrow.
- Finish my Berkshire Dolman sweater. Due before December 15. Progress: Reworked part of the body to make it a bit longer, and now I’ve started on the upper front or back section.
- Make a pair of mittens for myself. I have fallen in love with Elinor Brown’s Slanted Peerie Mittens from Interweave Knits Gifts 2010 and went stash diving to see if I had anything that would work. I totally do. Due before December 31.
So things are moving along, on time and maybe even a little bit early. And now I need to add a couple of things.
- Mittens for the little Ian monkey. Due December 15. Also need to weave a couple of scarves for his parents.
- A crafty project for two different swap partners; due January 15.
- Pair of woolen socks for my Aunt Katherine.
- Hat for my friend Shannon, who sent me yarn (MALABRIGO) to knit her a hat. No real due date, but we picked out an easy hat pattern so it shouldn’t take me too long.
Since at least a couple of those involve weaving, and the mittens are going to be small, and the socks can be a heavier weight yarn, and I’ve already knit the hat pattern once before, I’m thinking these additions will all be fairly easy.
OH if I save the socks for January, that can count for the first of my 12 pairs in 12 months goals. Look—multitasking!
