Fair isle for me
See that over there? That's not Christmas knitting. That's a selfish sweater for me, all me. (Details here).
It's not that I'm not Christmas knitting. It's that I was insane/crazy/stupid/ignorant when I began laying out how much Christmas knitting I could get done this month. Or maybe I forgot about the infant and the faster-than-a-speeding-bullet two year old. But I have one pair of gloves and a pair of socks languishing on the needles, not to mention two planned pairs of socks that haven't even been cast on. Oh, yeah. And that sweater that still needs arms.
The only thing that seems to be going well is the Icarus shawl. I don't have pictures, but I started the binding off last night. So... hopefully the blocking will occur today and I'll have pretty pictures to show you all within the week.
In other news, we have a decorated tree, wrapped presents and the cutest gingerbread house I've ever seen. C'mon Christmas!
