|Crystal Visions Tarot|
A week and a half left to go, and I am just beginning to allow myself to contemplate the idea that all the last-minute Xmas knitting might just maybe possibly get done in time for the last mail. Unless I sit here tempting Providence again by even permitting the germ of that thought to enter my head.
I am being very disciplined, and really truly have only 1 WIP on my needles - Susie Rogers' Reading Mitts:
As you can see, I am well on my way to not just mastering, but thoroughly trouncing the Magic Loop technique for small diameter knitting; and I am still loving the James C.Brett Aria yarn.
No, I am not listening. I cannot see you gesticulating. I refuse to hear your sneaky whispers of sock passion.
I will confess instead that to make the above mitts, I need a pair of 3.75mm circular needles; I found the empty packet, so I knew they must be lying around somewhere. The somewhere turned out to be in another long-term WIP, Lily's Slice of Pi Shawl, which I started on the 6th March this year (oh the shame) and has been hibernating for a while. So I signed the 'fession and admit to us both that this will not get made, in this yarn anyway, and pulled the needles out to use for the mitts.
I can almost see a New Year's resolution taking shape as I type ....
Pop on over to Tami's Amis to see how everyone else is faring ...
