Expending effort.

Despite evidence to the contrary, I have been knitting. I finished a pair of knee socks (hoping to take pictures soon), and have started another Christmas present. I got the first shipment of the Wollmeise sock club, and wasn’t sure what to do with the skeins – they’re too pretty to be socks, I thought. I’m using the green skein (box elder), to make a lace ribbon scarf for a coworker, with stunning results. Since this weekend has been a gaming weekend, I’ve gotten a lot done on it. Next, I have to work on socks for my niece and a friend.


I have a confession.

Remember that post earlier this month where I talked about how I found the perfect Christmas socks for my sister, and they were awesome?

Yeah. I ripped them out, and declared that my Christmas knitting was over. Over!! I’ll just give my sister the Koolhaas hat and call it a day. I made this decision last week, and ever since I’ve been significantly less cranky. It’s an odd feeling to be done with Christmas knitting so far in advance, I have to say. It’s as if a 100 ton weight with a very nice knitted weight cover has been lifted from my shoulders. I did the “No more Christmas knitting!” victory dance. I was unreasonably giddy. I’m free to work on whatever I choose (though I have to wait until Christmas Eve to start my silk lace project because I want to wind it on a swift, one of my Christmas presents).

I’ve been working on Oblique all week, and started the sleeves last night. I decided to seam up the sides before starting the sleeves, just for a little change of scenery. So far, they’re the best seams I’ve ever done! Yay for selvage stitches. And soon my yarn for my Loopy Ewe sock pal will arrive, and I’ll have another new project.
