Gifts I Could Not Show Before December 25th…

December 29, 2017

So, the Slip-N-Slide socks didn’t go over as well for my niece as I hoped…they were tight on her too. I’m trying to re-knit the cuff of the tighter one and pull off a snug fit. She loved them, but I have no photos of them on her feet, as it was a challenge. I’m not sure what to do here…I have enough to re-knit these, but I want to move on to knitting my own socks. We’ll have to see which works better.

As you can see, Lizzie loves the socks…however, I still have some work to do…

In the mean-time, I did sneak in some toe-up knitting on the stealth argyles that will travel with me, and let me tell you about my yarn gifts for Christmas…Now, I have to figure out exactly what I’m going to knit with them…The first one(because I open my stocking first, was ten skeins of knit picks Wool of the Andes in Amethyst Heather. My boyfriend was hoping I could make a sweater with it. I’m looking at the Innsmouth Bodice on ravelry.com or getting five or six more skeins to make a true sweater. If you have any great sweater style tops to go with this, I might be open to suggestion.

Jessica’s quilt-matching pillow case….It won an “awesome,” which is high praise in teenage land.

I also received five skeins of the chroma color way..and.I’m torn here. It would make a great Dragon Wings shawl, but my boyfriend bought it for me to make a hat, scarf and mittens with…do I do what he wished, show him what it could be, or hope for a big money miracle to buy more yarn to make that dragonwings shawl and later the find your fade shawl.

Jessica really enjoyed her gifts….

I don’t dare tell him the status of my stash yarn…but he enjoys building my stash..I like this process…now, I just have to put a nudge on so I can get yarn that doesn’t require more yarn and more needles to knit these wonderful gifts…Shh…I promise, I’m not complaining…but I need to get back to knitting, and instead, I’m stuck working most of this week.

Lizzie loved her Godzilla necklace and earrings.

Wish me luck, I’ll be sharing. I will try to remember to take pictures of the stash yarn as I work far too many hours this week…Bear with me, guys…I’m trying to keep up with the all-night gamblers.
