Christmas Gifts

I do believe I posted too soon.
I was asked on Sunday, by a particular person to knit his family members each a scarf for Christmas. Now, let's see, Sunday was the 13th, Christmas is the 25th. My very basic math tells me that makes TWELVE days to knit SEVEN scarves.
I may be crazy, but I started yesterday, and I'm almost done the first. It is knit out of Phentex "Fashion Twenty-three" in the seasonally-appropriate "Icicle White" colourway. I got this at Zellers
The next one will be In Lion Homespun, I can't remember the name of the colour, but it's a wonderful blue. Pictures of that one will come when I start it.
I have two scarves that I made recently out of Wool Ease T&Q that will be used. They were supposed to go to Made In Windsor, but are appropriate for the recipients.
Pictures of all of these will happen as soon as they arrive in my inbox. I took a couple pictures with my cell phone, and it's terribly slow sending photos.

I FINALLY got some of my dishcloths to Made In Windsor today. I sent in fourteen to be sold, and an other eight or so to be given away as gifts, or in gift baskets or whatever. They were significantly smaller than the other cloths, and I would have felt bad charging for them.


  1. Got this fab yarn from the local craft centre which required all of 5 stitches to a row on large needles to knit a scarf. Was done in 1 hour! This is the sort of thing: http://www.knittingvillage.com/ekmps/shops/knitting/resources/image/picture-096-450-x-600-.jpg

  2. Ugh, I feel your pain! Last year I was frantically finishing Sophie Bags for all the women in my family. NOT happening again! ;o)

  3. You deserve something extra from Santa for this last minute request!

  4. Wow! What an undertaking! I hope you have a lot of movies to watch while you knit.

  5. Seven scarves in twelve days! There must be a song or poem there somewhere. Love your blog. Good luck with your knitting!

    PS - I'm doing 4 scarves for Christmas. Fortunately two will be given after Christmas!

  6. Good luck!! Let us know when you will finish!!
