Woo Hoo! The last of my meager Christmas knitting is finally over - 2 shedir hats in identical rowan calmer, color "slosh" - leftover from my cardigan from the summer. One is destined for my sister-in-law, and the other for my roommate! She admired my sister-in-law's so much that I took advantage of her temporary trip to visit family to make her one of her own! :)
All of my hand-knitted gifts have so far been extremely well received, which is always gratifying. I'm already cooking up some ideas for next year... and I'm trying to actually write them down so that later, when the holidays inevitably roll around again, I have a chance at remembering. :)
My next project? Just for me - the Knit Happens socks:
I had gotten a bit of progress done on them, but then discovered that they were too small for my feet, and that I really needed to find a different pattern.
The color change between the pink and green is so complete and abrupt that any patterning really gets completely lost - so I'm thinking a simple moss stitch ribbing. We'll see! :)
Cricket continues to enjoy her holiday vacation - oh, wait, this is everyday life for her, with the added benefit that I'm around for lap-duty much more often. Yesterday, she helped me watch 2 football games, AND all 6 hours of pride and predjudice (for the second time this vacation!) ;)
