It is that time of year, the holidays. Even saying that, makes me freak out a bit. As many yarnies know it is the time where some of us crazies choose to wait till the last minute to do our Christmas knitting or crocheting.
My tip...turn on some of your favorite tunes, breathe deep and knit.
Last minute ornaments on being knit up. Thankfully it is a quick and simple pattern, I added my own little touch to the pattern by adding some wee colorwork and a bow. Hint, also a great way to use up some sock scraps. Bonus!
The sister requested a scarf for a friend's daughter who is experiencing winter in Seattle for the first time. Therefore not only am I doing my own holiday knitting, but now it seems I am for hire? heh! Now, if you are nutty like me and "decide" to take on other's knitting presents I recommend this pattern by Robin Ulrich. Thankfully it is a quick knit. Don't worry, I am much further along that the picture above suggests. Our weather is a overcast and making decent picture taking impossible.
You may be thinking, Andi these two projects are nothing. You may be knitting a blanket and 12 gifts, thinking I am a wimp. But wait, I also have a very large super secret test/sample knit for a wonderful designer. Want a peek?
What is it? Inquiring minds what to know. heh. Shhh..it's a secret.
Let me tell you I am knitting like a mad woman and loving it. Are you in a yarn frenzy right now? If you are like me remember to take knitting breaks, breathe, and maybe try some of these exercises to help prevent yarning injuries.
Enjoy a video about knitting, maybe to help you get into the knitting mood.
Have the best day today and remember to take a breath. :)
