Another finished xmas gift, the koolaid purse! This one was a bit of a challenge, the shape and material don't make for easy sewing! I had found pretty good instructions to work from, but had a minor disastor in sewing the darn thing inside out. After that was fixed, I think it turned out okay! Hopefully my cousin likes it!

Finally a photo! My hot water bottle cozy is done, blocked, and ready to wrap:

Unfortunately the photo doesn't show the cable well, and I'm far too busy to start messing with photos for the blog! The fingerless gloves are done except for weaving in the MANY ends, not sure if I will block them. I still have a bunch of coasters to knit, and some things to felt. Back at it!

I'm getting a grip on the christmas knitting. I finished the hot water bottle cozy, just need to block it, felted a baby gift, did some samples for mom's gift, and finished the sleep mask, save for the elastic:

So I'm feeling a little more in control. Still lots to do, but it's looking remotely possible now!

Christmas Panic!!

I don't think there is any way to get all my christmas gifts done in time. I was already running behind (babies don't leave you tons of free time for knitting) and had an ambitious list, and then I started having wrist issues. Doc says a bit of tendonitis. Knitting doesn't seem to aggravate it, but I need to be careful.

So I've pretty much axed the big project for my sister (Poncho) and am struggling to finish what I can. I'm almost done my sister's fiance's knit hot water bottle cozy, half done brother's fingerless gloves, and mostly done the sleep mask for my aunt. I have a couple other things waiting, we'll see how much I can finish.
