Christmas Knitting

Or the lack thereof. It seems I've hit the saturation point for my family with regards to Christmas gift knitting. Everyone has tactfully (or not so tactfully) indicated that there is no need for me to knit anything for Christmas this year, so I'm just knitting what I feel like knitting with no deadline pressure. Which is pretty nice, once I got over being slightly insulted by it all. Kidding. Sort of.

So I'm knitting this shrug for me. And this cowl, out of some gorgeous Dragonfly Fiber yarn. And another second sock. And then I'm going to pull out some stash yarn and knit whatever the heck strikes my fancy. This is what's called a quality problem.

Oh, and I'm going to sew this for the cat. At least he'll appreciate the effort. I hope.



  1. Lucky you, able to knit whatever strikes your fancy. I need to get back to that.

  2. I'm getting some hints about knitting saturation, too. I don't understand how anyone can think they have enough hand-knit items!

    You are the best pattern-finder. I love the shrug and cowl you're working on. Maybe I should give up on the gifts and follow your lead!

  3. Well now, that's a gift in disguise if I ever saw one! Selfish Knitting projects are just the thing. Lucky you!

  4. Ahem, I've left you an award on my site today. Come fetch and play along!
