Our schedules mean we both are a bit delayed getting into the Christmas spirit. We have some finished projects and some we can’t wait to put in our rearview mirror.
Socks for Mark: Finished my brother’s socks! Used Weird Sisters Wool Emporium fingering weight called Luke in colorway Mermaids of the Black Lake with heels and toes in Dream in Color Yarn fingering called Mini Smooshy in the colorway As A Bird.
Ben’s sweater: I have finished the body of the sweater and the first sleeve. I have knit about half the second sleeve. The end of this project is in sight. (Or is it? By publishing time there is yet another glitch...)
January Blanket: I am going to use my handspun Manx Loaghton. It is aran weight and I have 1,460 yards. This is too much for a sweater so I thought a blanket would be a great idea to use all the yarn. I made a swatch and think I will go up a needle size and use #9 instead of #8.
Orange hat and a pink hat finished. Nothing else.
Piano–I'm learning some Christmas songs now. (PS by the time the episode is published I have learned about 6 songs pretty well. Away in a Manger has chords and that is slowly getting better. The rest are two hands, but not both hands for the same notes. They alternate. )
Winter Weave Along
