Recovering from the Holidays

I was all ready to write up a post in Blogger and it appears to be down. So, rather than squander the opportunity to blog, I’m writing it up in Word…

I completed my Christmas knitting in the nick of time. The stocking came out quite well. I am happy enough that I am in the process of writing up the pattern. As well as knitting up another sample because my notes aren’t worth crap. I know what I did, but couldn’t tell you how many inches long the leg or the foot is. These details might be important. I’m sure most knitters would appreciate it more specific information than knit until it is long enough.

But, after all of the holiday knitting, I am finally working on something for myself.

This is the Rowan Magpie that I bought on the cheap during a clearance sale at my LYS. Sadly, it is discontinued. I am finding that it snags easily, but I love the way it knits up. The pattern is my own and it will be a snug vest to wear over a button down shirt. I am planning a deep v-neck. I am surprised at the mileage I am getting from the Magpie.

I have added a button the the "It's not a Gift" KAL to sidebar. What a treat to do something for me...

I agree. After going over everything I knit I realized most of it was for everyone else! This year I'm knitting for me:-)
