So these are the Christmas knits revealed! A Seashore cowl for my mother-in-law, Griselda. Two Phoebe sweaters and Phoebe dolls for the girls. I actually forgot to wrap Mirin’s cable vest – I still need to dig it out of my cedar chest. What can I say….Santa had a lot on his mind this year. He slacked off a little
I just wound up the other skein of Madelintosh “Big Sur,” and I’m considering knitting another Seashore Cowl for a friend of mine who is moving away. She’s heading to Maine, so I thought something wooly and warm would be a nice goodbye present.
And then….I’m realizing I only have two sweaters, and the buttonhole on my favorite one wore out this year! I’ve been freezing all November and December. My kids have so many beautiful woolens now – and it’s like pulling teeth to get them to even put them on. It was so easy to knit for them, because they always look so cute in everything. But I believe it’s high time to make myself a nice sweater – maybe even a new cardigan for the new year.
