Yarn Along

Happily joining in with Ginny at Small Things for this week's Yarn Along. Now that Christmas is less than a month away (yikes!) I have been making time to knit almost every night. I have temporarily set aside Phoebe's tea leaves sweater in order to work on holiday gifts that need to be mailed. I figure that I can save the kids gifts for last, as I can be working on them until the very last minute. Right now I am in the midst of some bowls (that I will felt) and some mittens and I have 4 other projects that I am just itching to cast on. 
After a couple of weeks of finishing up a lot of books that I was in the middle of, I am now happily back to reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. I am happy that I am only reading one book right now, and I am also very happy that it is fiction! Right now my mind needs a break!
What are you reading? What are you knitting?

P.S.- it's so windy here that my book and yarn was blowing in the wind in this photo! Can you tell?!? Pin It Now!


  1. feeling the rush? lol me too. and for some insane reason i keep adding to my list of things to knit for christmas. LOL

  2. Good for you, getting your Christmas projects done! I am wondering how you like that book you are reading. I had some teachers at my school telling me they didn't like it at all. I see the book all over, but am not sure if it would be a good one to pick up. Enjoy the rest of your week!

  3. You sound like me! It's getting to be crunch time over here. I'm sure you will get your projects done in time!!

  4. I think everyone is feeling the rush of holiday knitting.

  5. Knitting is tricky for gift giving, you can only knit at one speed..unlike sewing gifs driving the sewing machine 100 mph ;)

  6. Yay for cranking out the Christmas knitting! You can do it!
