I'm not sure whether you're going to believe me that I've knitted all this since last Wednesday, but it's true *^v^*.
Kendra, I sound to be busy all the time because:
- my time management is terrible... I start many things and then finish them just in time, so I have to rush with everything,
- I sew and knit as my job, so I always think that I should make one more item either for my gothic shop, or the on-line galleries, so I'm always engaged in new projects (and lots of old ones...).
But I'm planning to do nothing in the next three days and give my hand a break (which I'll probably fail to accomplish, but anyway, that's the plan! *^v^*).
I promised pictures with my knitting, so here we go:
Commissioned gifts for my friend's nieces (they are 3, 4 and 5 years old), three sets of a hat and a poncho, one blue one and two pinks ones (my own pattern, matching the hat):
Yarn: YarnArt Baby (100% acryl)
Christmas gift for my Mother-in-Law I (Robert's mom) - Liesel wrap:
Yarn: Opus Tiftik (5% mohair, 95% acrylic)
Needles: 5 mm
Surprisingly quick and easy pattern, although it's lace. ^^ I added more repeats of the pattern.
Christmas gift for my Mother-in-Law II - Irish Hiking scarf:
Yarn: Oliwia Plus (25% wool, 75% acryl) in caramel
I love this pattern! Very quick, and I'm definitely going to knit one for myself, only wider (kind of wrap), and in other colour (green probably).
Christmas gift for my Father-in-Law - Fingerless Cabled Gloves:
Yarn: Schachenmayr Nomotta Alpacana (35% wool, 35% acryl, 30% alpaca)
I love this patterns, I've knitted them for my husband before in black - nice quick and easy desing.
Christmas gift for my Grandfather - a scarf (simple elegance for an older gentleman):
Yarn: Linate Yeni Cetiklik (90% wool, 10% acrylic)
Needles: 7 mm
Plus (what I knitted some time earlier) my mom will receive green Ella shawl (as if she deserves...), aunt Basia will receive the Lithuanian Socks from Nancy Bush's book.
That's all I managed to knit this year for Christmas gifts, wow!
And, can you believe it?... I finished the second of my OPAL socks!!! ^^
As for my knitting plans for the nearest future (yes, I'm already thinking about new projects, am I crazy or what?... ^^) - I'm going to finish Emelia choker, which is the belated birthday present for my best friend Anna (I only need about 2 cms of it to finish) and I want to knit a long colourful scarf for Anna as a New Year's gift, because I know she's been dreaming of such a scarf. I'll be also knitting a sweater for my husband. And several more new things, as always! *^v^*
I'll leave you with my tree! ^^
Merry Yule/Christmas, everyone! *^v^*
