Evidence of Knitting

There has been some knitting the past week or so....

A pair of Plucky Knitter Cashmere Toasty Mitts for a very special teacher....


Featuring my favorite tags from Knitterella.

And a Snowboarder Hat that Rocks....a design sample for the new pattern layout.


But to be honest, there hasn't been much knitting since Thursday. So unusual for me this time of year.  Typically, even though I promise to not overdue the holiday knitting, there is a mad rush of knitting.  Not this year.  I think I'm also in between projects, so I don't have something "easy" on the needles.  Must remedy that tomorrow because I look forward to relaxing and knitting a bit for the next few days! 

We've been in full holiday celebrating mode here since Thursday night, when we went to see the Nutcracker in San Francisco!  It was absolutely fantastic and the perfect way to begin celebrating. 


Then there was the last of the holiday shopping, wrapping presents (still more left to wrap!), holiday baking, and a few pattern releases :)  I'll give you more details about the Cotty Fingerless Mitts after Christmas, but for those of you who have been waiting patiently for this pattern, I released it yesterday!

Cotty 7

Cotty 9

On sale for $4.00 from now until January 1, 2013. 

Today we went up to Folsom to visit Little Guy.  We had such a great day (more on that tomorrow!), but tonight I'm sleepy.  I'm still fighting a sinus infection (yuck!), so I must to bed.  Hope to have some time tomorrow to pop in and share more pictures and perhaps what I decided to cast on.

This is my spot

Happy almost Christmas Eve!!

I found myself in exactly the same position yesterday! Nothing "mindless" on my needles.

I solved the problem by casting-on the Borders Socks from Interweave Press.

Merry Christmas

Love the picture of Lil Snowboarder! She looks beautiful all dressed up for the Nutcracker!

I predict the cotty mitts will be as popular as the socks!

Love the mitts! Way to just relax and enjoy the holiday making memories and setting up traditions. Much more important, me thinks.

Merry Christmas Carrie! May there be more pattern testing in my future ;) g

I'm in the midst of "in between" times, too. I'm in my last week of my year of projects so I only have three projects on needles, none of which will be close to finished by the end of this week.

I think I'm going to have to dig out some yarn and needles for our cruise that coincide with my second year of projects. ::sigh:: I get to go stash diving :)

I hope your holiday is lovely :)
