We got a little more snow today. Another day off for the kids, and for me, an excuse to drink hot chocolate and knit like a mofo.
My Christmas knitting scheme has completely fallen apart, but I am okay with this. Maybe because the same thing happens every year? I don't know, but here's what I finished the last few days:
Teacher Scarf 1:
Based on the Spring Butterflies dishcloth pattern - I just halved the pattern (CO 25 st), did 2-1/2 repeats, a whole bunch of garter, then 2-1/2 more repeats. I used just a little over one skein of Paton's Classic Merino and it was a super fast knit, about 72". I love the way it looks on - the garter looks so organic.
Teacher Scarf #2:
Just one skein of Malabrigo makes a 59" scarf. This gorgeous pattern is very fast, and totally easy to memorize. And heavenly soft in the Malabrigo, but you already knew that :)
What can I say? A last ditch effort to produce yet a few more gifts! Trying to get a small stack of these (though a stack may end up meaning "two") made for my cousin. Random patterns, Christmas colors.
After this I have about half a loafer and one neckwarmer left to knit and that's it for the gifts. Oh, a a few more teeny tiny mittens, now that I found some teeny tiny clothespins to clip on them - cute cute!
Hope you are surviving the holiday knit countdown too!
