I was in a store a week and a half ago and the man at the checkout seemed a tad too gleeful when he told me that Christmas was just 12 weeks away. Meanie! So guess what I'm knitting. Christmas gifts! A sweater for my niece that is not going very well. I had picked a baby-surprise-type but I don't think it went really well with my Plymouth Happy Feet yarn so I ribbited the hours of work, consulted with my mother by borrowing my daughters awesome ipod with the camera right on it and emailing 5 different pictures of patterns to her and have restarted the sweater.
I felt that the colorway of the Happy Feet wasn't really conducive to garter stitch and without actually being a striping yarn it didn't lend itself to the Baby Surprise pattern. The new pattern is a stockinette stitch cardigan with smocking on the front near the shoulders.
However, I have an awesome vest almost done. I just need to insert the zipper so I think I'll take a break from the holidays tomorrow and finish that vest.
Are YOU holiday knitting?
