Christmas Knitting

In this case it should be said that some peopl may actually get something knitted for Christmas this year but I have my doubts that my epic idea of only knitted presents will be fulfilled. On the go at the moment 2 pairs of mittens from the book Folk Mittens. I love this book it's amazing. Also on the go is a pair of socks for my dad seeing as though he does indeed seem to appreciate the last pair I made him. These are from Estonian Knitting. The only gripe I have about this book is that it does not tell you what weight yarn is used and so it's the hard route of substitution. Dave's jumper is moving along, that definately should be done in time. It is the one from the new Rowan mag with the snowflake on the front. The last project is a pair of felted crochet slippers. I'm enjoying this even though I am not that enamoured with crochet.

Alas not much knitting for myself lately, well actually not much knitting getting done really as I have been reading a lot lately and though I have proved both reading and knitting can be done together it is not the most enjoyable experiance.

Anway that's it for now. Hopefully I will be able to bring a digital camera to this weeks knit and relax.
