Christmas Knitting Update

Well, my goal was 2 shawls and 1 hat in the 5 days before Christmas. I managed to finish 1 shawl, and most of the hat, as well as start the 2nd shawl by Christmas morning. I’m calling it a win.

I finished my sister’s shawl.


1 skein of Zen String Lotus Toes in Calliope, from forever ago, knit on US 5s (3.75mm)

(maybe my family reading this can guilt her into getting me a better photo.)

My dad’s hat is now done.


Simple, simple hat, knit with 1 skein of Berroco Ultra Alpaca, and 1 skein of Cascade 220, knit on US 9s (5.5mm).

And my mom’s shawl is rather far along considering I started it Sunday night.


3 balls of a red lace weight, held together, on US 6s (4.00mm).

I’m totally calling this a win.



But it was also a completely crazypants idea. Please remind me to start knitting earlier next year. (Future me thanks you.)
