Thank Goodness, I have too much living to do and too big of a stash to knit up.
It has been a busy week. I worked about 40 hours this week. At least this job is just about over and I get a break. I only have to work a couple of hours next week and then a few hours the next week. Then I can concentrate on doing tax returns.
I am about 95% ready for Christmas. I have some cleaning to do tomorrow and a little grocery shopping to finish. All presents are wrapped. I will only have a few odds and ends to do to be completely ready. Now, we are suppose to get 1 to 3 inches of snow on Christmas Eve and that could wreck the whole thing since I celebrate Christmas with my family on Christmas Eve. Hopefully, the weatherman is wrong again and we only get a dusting.
I haven’t gotten much knitting done this past week. I did block the Color Affection Shawl (finally) that I finished in November. I used Shalimar Breathless yarn in Limerick, Loden and Byzantine. I used a size 6 needle. This time I used YO’s at the beginning of the row and end of the row and dropped them on the purl side. It still puckered a bit as I knit, but once I blocked the shawl there was no puckering. I used a size 6 needle.
I am working on a scarf for a Christmas present and I’m not sure that I will finish it. I may be knitting it on Christmas. I am using Plymouth yarn Taria Tweed in color 5302 (a grey tweed) with a size 10 needle. It takes 2 skeins of yarn and I am on the second skein. Let’s see what happens.
It has been a relaxing day today, so I guess I will go knit on the scarf.
