So, one week before Xmas eve, and things are looking good! Everything from the xmas list is finished, except for the shawl and finishing the pair of slippers. I wound up changing the shawl when I finally started it last night, because there was no way I can do a fingering weight shawl in just over a week – so it’s going to be DK weight knit on huge needles (size 15s, baby!), in a super simple lace pattern. Nothing complicated, but it’s a shawl, and it’s going to be pretty, and that’s what matters, right?
I got the heels done on the slippers… still not sure what I’m going to do for the cuffs. though. That’s really bothering me. I started knitting them sideways, but I’m not liking how it was turning out, so I may change it… Or I may not. I don’t know!
Anyways, I’ve got a ton of pictures to share!
…of course, knowing I’m so close to finishing, what do I do? Add more to the list!
So now, the to-do list for the next week (eep!) is as follows
- Finish slippers
- Finish shawl
- Doll mittens!
- Doll cowl!
- Doll socks?
- Another hat for the midget?
- Doll hat?
…yeah, I’m nuts.
