Well….not really. But definitely not in an official sort of way. I have a pair of socks for the youngest, Chloe. They were an accident. I made them for me and in a frenzied laundry session they went through the wash, and shrank to exactly Chloe’s size. The cobblestone socks I have on the needles for Katie are going in her stocking.
Each of the girls recently asked for a hat, so with a little stealth on my part into t he stockings they will go also.
EJ’s sweater is the big one. I just have the sleeves to knit and it’s finished. I plan on starting the sleeves tomorrow. I was hoping to have this finished by now, but just could not deal with 16 inch circulars for the sleeves. The needle was just a bit to long and hurt my hands. I did that to myself on the body and won’t do that ever again. My hands hurt for weeks! I ordered a set of dpns which just arrived, but I wanted to clear the decks a bit before going in to full sweater mode. This is something I feel an urgency to have finished by Christmas…the kid gave me a deadline and is convinced I won’t meet it. The deadline? January 2. I know I can do this!
Other than that, not ok be present for Christmas is going on the needles. And oddly, I feel no stress about Christmas this year. Don’t get me wrong, I keep browsing small Christmassy things on ravelry, but so far I have stayed strong and resisted the allure of cute little ornaments. They are already on my list for next year, though!
How are you doing on your Christmas knitting?
