Noche Buena. I’ve been doing lots of knitting but finishing nothing ha ha ha. I just keep starting projects which just keeps me from finishing anything. I did finish a shawlish kind of scarf for my mom. I’m disapointed in the blocking though. I’ve never really had to block anything. So I bought blocking wires and t pins and everything and it still curls. It’s not making me want to knit more shawls, what good is knitting them if you cant block them. Here it is in the one moment I was able to keep it from curling.
The pattern is Mezquita. I used glenhaven fingering from three irish girls. I restarted my monkey socks yet again in a beautiful yarn from black trilium. Its coming along well and Im on the foot of one sock. The farthest Ive ever gotten on Monkey socks so Im confident I will have a pair to show on the blog someday soon. I don’t think Ive gotten any new yarn. I did buy some new yarn from black trilium on etsy. That was my last yarn purchase for the year. Yes I’m going to say it…Starting in January I will be on a yarn diet! Club shipments only and I will blog those of course. That way the spammers who look at my blog will have some eye candy ha ha ha. Well Happy Holidays to all. See you in the new year!
