After sorting through my skeins, I found a forgotten project - a mystery knit-along hat to which I had all the clues, but only had knit the first 3. A few other projects that I decided to frog and the single socks I've yet to knit the mates for (Damn SSS!).
I didn't get much knitting done today, but I at least have a bit of a cleaner environment to work in.
I suspect tomorrow I'll do a bit more cleaning and reorganizing as well. I still have far too many Christmas gifts to knit, and there aren't many in the Christmas box. This is going to be a rush knit year!
Let It Snow hat:
This is the forgotten hat mentioned above. I knit 2 rounds before remembering I didn't have a before picture! I hope to finish this one before bed, and send it straight into the Christmas box. This hat is now available for purchase on Ravelry (it was a July MKAL). Let It Snow Hat - for only $3.00!
I've forever envious of knitters who seem to make numerous sweaters throughout the year - I've only ever finished one full adult sweater, but always yearn for my own cushy handknit luxury ones. With that in mind, I recently bought another 2 skeins of Tosh Sock to finish my Tempest Cardigan. I made a few modifications - mainly lengthened the sleeves (which is why I ran out of yarn!). Anyway, I cast on in Flash Dance and Lepidoptra back in June - this project seems to be put on hold a lot, then worked on for a good chunk, then put on hold again (for details on how my progress has been, see here.) Sadly, I don't have a picture of any of the pieces - I'll upload some when blocking the pieces.
A word on beading!
We're doing a Secret Santa at work, and we're to make a handmade gift (maximum of $10).
Originally, I thought of knitting something, however it would all depend on who I drew from the "Santa Hat" (aka a ziplock with our names, lol). After I pulled my name, I knew the perfect gift. It wouldn't be knit, but beaded. I went to work straight away - bought the beads, printed off my pattern, and completed the focal the next two nights after work. After finishing, I decided maybe I could alter the project by adding to it. This didn't work out, so I decided to make a secondary piece the first would attach to. I'm roughly halfway done with the second piece, though it's be hibernating for a while now. I have to have it finished by our Christmas Party on the 16th, so plenty of time. I could finish it in half an hour max if I'm in the mood, maybe I'll bring it to Bead Night on Wednesday if I go. I won't be able to share pictures until then, but let me tell you, I think I may need to make one for myself!
In other beading news, I have the geometric bead work book, and I love making the 3D peyote stars.

For now, however, it's time to curl up with some tea and knitting and watch Sleepy Hollow on Netflix!
