You know, I always set really lofty goals for myself for Christmas knitting and am always really disappointed when I don’t have everything done. This year is no exception. I have nothing finished to give to people for Christmas, and I have a lot I want to have finished. I had really big goals, but I have changed them a bit…possibly more realistic, but only time will tell.
I want to finish S’s Wallaby. I am making very slow progress on the sleeves…but I think once those are done, it will be pretty simple, I will attach them, do the yoke and the hood and be done. Hope springs eternal doesn’t it?
I also want to finish J’s socks, but I had to completely rip one of them out while we were on our trip to Kansas. I realized that they were just going to be way too small and I couldn’t live in that denial any longer. So, I’ve started over on those. I guess if I don’t get them done for Christmas, I can always aim for his birthday in February. I really also want to get his hat done for him too.
I am making some longies for A, and really want to knit a bear for her also. We’ll see though.
I did finish something on our trip though. I made the Baby Saartje Bootees for my new niece. So, that is the picture you will get! She is 2 weeks old in this photo and is just the sweetest baby. Yes, it is making me VERY baby hungry.
Here is a photo of her in her cap that I knit for her also.
Oh boy, my uterus aches I want a little one so badly!
We had a great trip. I will do a post soon of pictures from our vacation. We ate a lot (I gained 5 lbs!), laughed a lot, and had a generally fantastic time!
Oh, and that blanket baby C is wearing? SO CUTE! My mil knit it for her. It is seed stitch borders around stockinette squares. I love it!
