I think it’s because the weather is warmer than normal. The high today was 62. It’s November 29th! It’s not suppose to be that warm! At least I started Christmas shopping. I bought one present and finished a knitted gift (see below).
I only bought two skeins of yarn since last time. I got Crofter’s DK by Sirdar (a Fair Isle effect yarn) to make a cool pattern that could either be a cowl or a hat. Now to just find the time to make it.
I did finish the Basic Sock using Gales Art yarn in Crayon box with a size 1 needle. I really loved this yarn. No pooling and I didn’t have to worry about trying to match both socks.
I also completed the November 2011 Mid Month KAL. The pattern was the Starburst cloth by Dione Reed. I used Peaches and Crème in Sunrise with a size 7 needle. This cloth got quite big. If I knit it again, I would knit it on a smaller needle, but the pattern was easy.
I completed a Christmas gift for my great nephew, Carter. It is a Wooly Wormhead hat called Doodie. I used Plymouth Dreambaby in a green color (0125) with a size 4 needle. This was an easy knit.
Now, I need to get knitting on a sweater for Carter. It’s started and I have about 1/3 rd of it completed. I also have to knit him a dog puppet, but that shouldn’t take long to do.
