And so it begins...

For the last week or so I've been hitting the Christmas knitting fairly seriously. I think my goals are pretty reasonable, especially since, given enough time, I would knit something for everyone I know (incidentally, I did come pretty close that year I made the korknisse ornaments*). This year I am dutifully following my holiday instructions to Not Stress Myself Out. Which means I've made a spreadsheet to keep everything straight. Because I just can't help myself.

Here's a little peek at one of the projects on the needles:

I may look like a mitten, but I am really a glove**

This is my second pair of Snorri Gloves. You last saw the first (now finished) pair here. Pictures soonish! We've already done the photoshoot and, as we all know, Thunk is an excellent model.

*which make an awesome little holiday craft, if you haven't already made some. seriously...they take about a half hour a piece.

**I know this picture is a little fuzzy, but there's nothing I can do about it now because there is NO LIGHT ANYMORE! I miss the sun. Boo.


I love the mittens....and I used to stress out as well about christmas knitting.....no more...if I get things done then great if not there's always next year...I have 2 prs of mitts, 1 pr of socks and some discloths all packaged and ready to go...

Looks great so far! I hear you on the light thing. It's getting hard. But, now only 20 more days and then the days get longer again!

spreadsheet!?! *snort*

It looks great!! I've never knit gloves before, so I cna't believe that they knit up so quickly!! I'll have to try it out one of these days.

Those look so great! I bet you could just transfer the fair isle pattern and turn them into mittens, right? (I like mittens more than gloves, and these are just gorgeous!)

I tried to get serious about gift knitting in Sept. I even had a spreadsheet. Still don't think I'll finish everything.

Good luck with all of your knitting.

Everytime I see mittens on a blog I think that I want to knit it... but really, I can't knit them all!!! Really nice so far, I look forward to see the finished product!

Just passing by, thought I'd drop in.....are you still alive lovely? Just checkin' Hugs xoxox
