I have finished another Christmas Knit! Yippee! I finished off cousin J's socks last night. So, my Christmas knitting list now looks like this:
- 1 pair of fingerless gloves in Lorna's Laces Camo colorway
- 1 IHS in red
- 1 hat to match the IHS
I never would have finished those socks if I hadn't sat in my corner of the office, with my back to the room, and casted on, worked the cuff and leg. It helped that my boss stayed in his office most of the day, and it was a small project. I can usually get away with small ones, as all I have to do is drop it in my lap and scoot closer to counter to hide it. And ya know, I have no idea why he has a problem with us knitting in the slow times. I mean, he lets us read about knitting, talk about knitting, blog about knitting, and even work small cross stitch projects, but if we knit, he gets angry. When I asked him one time, he said it was because he was a jerk (but not in so nice of words). But, maybe he'll be in the Christmas spirit today, and I might be able to work on the IHS hat. Ya never know, it could happen. Plus, today is the office Christmas lunch. If not, I'll still try to work on it under the desk.
On Sunday I knitted for as long as I could. At around 10 pm, my hands just gave out. They flat out refused to knit anymore, so I gave up and went to bed. Monday, I was distracted by many other things. Like trips to the gas station for cherry coke and caramel popcorn, phone calls from best friend that is a truck driver (Hi Miss Tami) and then American Choppers. But, I am getting closer to finishing my knitting. And I'm with Lexa, I think I'll start way early next year, like in June.
Oh, and I have have joined the A Cardigan for Arwen KAL . Now I just need to pick out my yarn and color. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know. I was thinking of going with the good ol' back up, Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in either Chambray, Rain or Hush. I am leaning more toward Chambray, and maybe the Hush, as I don't really have a sweater that's light in color.
