Christmas Knitting Freak Out

January through October – “I’m totally not knitting Christmas presents this year.”


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?

  1. Pretty things! So kind to knit Christmas gifts. I purchased yarn to make two gifts this year but disliked how the first one started out so gave up! As it’s more than midway through November already I don’t plan to start again so the two recipients may get birthday gifts instead next year!

  2. This sounds like me every year. It looks like you chose some good ones! Your friends and family are lucky. 😊 I am intrigued by that Rasta shawl. Is that sized for a kid or an adult? Good luck with the rest of your Christmas knitting.
