A Little Busy

I have been knitting but not nearly as much as I'd like. Until I get my eyes fixed in January all knitting is done in little bits. No more knitting for hours at a time, it's just too tiring.

Because we are heading to somewhere very very cold for Christmas and because I just got my hair cut very very short, I'm rushing to finish the cowl pictured below. It needs to be about 19 inches high so I think I'm one pattern repeat away from finishing it. That's just 28 more rows.

I finished another little pair of socks for Ellie with leftover yarn and I have one more pair on the needles. I couldn't get the colors to match up with what little yarn I had left but I think it's okay.

Now here I did a little better on matching leftover yarn but that's because I had a little more of it. These are plain vanilla socks but I loved the idea of not having leftover yarn and I hate waste.

These are brand new yarn and I love the pattern. These have a turned over cuff which I won't do again. I had trouble lining up the live stitches with the cast on stitches to keep everything straight.

So that's it for this year. I wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas or Happy Chanukah, and an incredible 2010.

I love all of your offerings. You've been very productive, even if your eyes have not.

Enjoy your holidays.
