8 knitting days until Christmas…

I lost interest when it got to the seaming part. For a weaver I surely do hate sewing. BUT. It MUST BE DONE by 9am Christmas Eve, so I can wrap it, because it is being given later in the morning!

Gratuitous photo of Shetland singles for weaving. Not enough to make anything but a scarf, so it shall sit in my stash until I buy another Shetland fleece and spin more. I read in a Starmore book that Shetland is too fragile for weaving; I plan to challenge that statement and report back.

ETA: click on the photos for a better look.

No pictures but progress


I have made two hats, two pairs of mittens, and am about 2/3 of the way through a knitted toy, one of two that I will make this year. A hand made book, a couple of quick other things (can’t do a reveal in case they read the blog!) and our gifting for 2014 will be complete!

I’m hoping not to give gifts on Advent this year…on time is much better.
