There are 37 days until Christmas, but far fewer knitting days until Christmas...
Sweaters are usually one of my go-to gifts for the family, but this year, there will be no sweater for the husband. In fact, I am not sure there will even be a beanie under the tree for him. (Sorry, Honey!)
This is what I have before me:
What is this, you say?
Well, if you look closely, you may be able to make out two would-be sweaters and a shawl.
The purple will eventually be a Bedford pullover for the older daughter:
The black and blue striped thing (of which there are two sleeves and a partial body) will soon become (I hope!) a Maxfield Cardigan for the younger daughter, as she fell in love with mine:
The same one I made for myself in the spring:
The sweaters are actually Christmas gifts, but the shawl is for me.
You know this shawl, I posted about the first one here and the second one here. What can I say, other than the first two were gifts and I wanted one for myself?
Logic would dictate instead of knitting on the shawl, my time might actually be better spent working on the sweaters; however, I cannot seem to step away from the shawl. Just a scant few days and I think it will be done.
In fact, if we cancel Thanksgiving all together I may have enough time to finish everything by Christmas...
