Wow! Pumpkin season has passed and we’re now well into Christmas-time! How is that possible? I know I always say that time passes so quickly but it really does! And you can see it in my WIPs and FOs for November, which have now taken a turn to holiday knitting!
Let’s get to it!
Yes, I cheated and wound my Advent skein of Freckled Whimsy yarn early so that I could get my cuffs knit in the bare yarn. After knitting with The Cozy Knitter’s Advent skein for the past two years, I decided to try a different dyer this year. And this yarn looks gorgeous caked up! (No spoilers – yet!)
Advent Cowl Wolop
I’m still having so much fun with this pattern! For this cowl, I’m using my Blush Yarns Advent calendar from last year. And it’s gorgeous! I was hoping to finish this project this year, but that’s probably not going to happen.
I haven’t made much progress on these mitts. I know, I know. I really want to finish these but I still lack the motivation.
Long Summer Cardigan
This project has gotten just a bit of love this past month, during Saturday football games. Joji Locatelli’s pattern is so, so pretty and that keeps me knitting all the *fun* twisted rib.
This has been another Saturday football project for me – crocheting little squares and putting them together. Some more progress was made but this is a project that will take years.
Since I finished Stephen West’s MKAL, I am finally able to do a bit of knitting on this shawl. And it’s so gorgeous! I’m loving the yarn! Why do I love corals so much?!
At the beginning of the month, I finished the Westknits Twists and Turns MKAL. Talk about an epic knitting journey! I loved so many things about this pattern and learned tons of new techniques…. But I’m glad it’s over – and I’m glad to have another lovely shawl!
And after I finished the MKAL, I put the finishing touches on my Must Stash Elf Christmas Socks, which I knit for my dad. I gave these to him at Christmas, along with socks for the rest of my family, and he seemed to really like them! More on these soon!
I’m going to knit some Christmas socks for me – with scraps from the socks I knit for the family. This will be a fun thing to do in December, since I knit most of these socks in the warmer months!
And then I hope to start a Musselburgh Hat with a coveted skein that has suffered from frog-itis. We’ll see.
Whatever you’re knitting, I hope it brings you joy!
