Getting Things Done






The weather is definitely cold now. I am finishing up painting our neighborhood signs. I'd like to finish them before Christmas. I have knitting projects that need to be finished before Christmas also. I actually had a few requests this year for knitted items. That must mean that they aren't tired of getting them for presents yet??? I wonder how many other knitters out there give knitted items for Christmas gifts? Wanna share?

I finally finished Honeycomb. The cabling was a bit time consuming, but I am very pleased with the fit. Maybe I'll post a picture of me wearing it later. My kids requested mittens this year so I'm working on that. My sister requested some leg warmers that I have already finished and my sister's daughter requested a slouche hat. So there is plenty to do between now and Christmas.

Cheers all you Christmas knitters...may your cup (of coffee) be full and your needles be swift!

Your leg warmers are beautiful! And I have learned that people appreciate knitted presents. Both because they are useable, but also because they are homemade and we have spent some time on making them :-) Do you live close to Glacier national park?

All of your gifts look great! I made my mom a pair of fingerless mitts. I'm going to knit her one more pair also. That's it for my knitted gifts. More for me!!!!!

Oh all those handknits look wonderful, no wonder you get requests for more of them.

All your knitted items will definitely keep out the cold. Especially the leg warmers. Nice and toasty.

Love those mittens! Interesting pattern.

Good luck with publishing your patterns. I'm starting to do that also.

Thanks for the comment on my blog.
