Before I start talking about my current WIPs, I'm going to mention this- I finally got my ravelry invite, and wanted to let you know that I'm findingher on there, as well. If you're on there and want to friend me, please do!
Okay, knitting content! I started working on Christmas gifts awhile back, and am currently working on my sister's gift. I'm going to save that one for last, because I have to put it behind a cut, since she does have the link to this blog. Not sure if she comes here, but I err on the side of caution. But, anyway, I ran out of yarn about halfway through and needed to order more, so I got bored waiting, and didn't know what to work on- I only really had my Anemoi mittens on the needles,
and they're NOT TV knitting. So I told Andy about this problem, and he said that he'd like some fingerless gloves, so I started on the Cigar gloves from Knitty.
I'm using Plymouth Encore. So I'm knitting along on these, and I admit to myself, I REALLY hate the needles I'm using, and I'd rather use a pair of Options. But I don't have two pairs in that size. Gah. So, added that on to the order I was making from Knitpicks. And once again, projectless.
So, I started Wicked. I'm about 3 rows away from taking the sleeves off the needles. I'm hoping this will end up being my Rhinebeck project- yep, that's right, I plan on going to RHINEBECK this year. I can. Not. Wait. I've been wanting to go for a few years, but last year I was on the cruise (I can't believe that was a year ago) and the year before that, Dan and Katie's wedding fell on that weekend, and I couldn't miss my high school best friend's weddding, despite how cute sheep are ;) Anyway, Wicked. I'm knitting it with Elann Peruvian Highland Wool, in a dark green heather. Very pretty.
Sister of mine, do not go any further.
And now, JoAnn's Christmas gift- I'm using a pattern called the Woven Cables Scarf. I think it's pretty classic, and my sister will like it. I tried taking pictures of it today, which proved difficult as Izzy decided to MODEL. Half the time, she doesn't care if we're alive, the other half the time, she's in luuurve with us, and this was one of those times she had to be near me.
and even when I'm SURE she's gone...
