January through October – “I’m totally not knitting Christmas presents this year.”
Mid-November – “I NEED TO KNIT A CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR EVERYONE!!!!”
I might be a little stressed right now. Good thing I knit pretty quickly – I have made some good progress:
A shrug for The Munchkin (simple top down raglan of my own design in Swoosh DK “fresh”)
A cape for The Blessing (simple top down half pi shawl in Knit Picks Glimmer). I am thinking about putting a pink ribbon through the first row of eyelets to use as a tie.
A shawlette for The Fraggle (“Ovate” by Tori Gurbisz in Yarn Love Bulky). This pattern was written for one skien of Malabrigo Rasta and I have wanted to make one for years. This is the most epic quick-knit last-minute pattern I have ever seen. I made it in one evening. It’s small but there is a 2 skien version if you want it bigger. This will be perfect size for The Fraggle.
I am now working on a cowl for The Princess.
Then there is still a vest for Little Man, a hat for The Boy, a scarf (?) for The Dancing Queen, and maybe something for The Man.
I can totally do this…. right?
