Small Things for the last Yarn Along of 2011! So, this week I am still reading Saving Fish from Drowning and Collapse, both of which I have been stuck on for a couple of weeks. Somehow, amidst the holiday scramble, I just haven't had much quiet time to myself in order to read. Imagine that, eh?
And, apparently I haven't had ample knitting time either because guess what I am knitting this week? Phoebe's stocking. Yes, Christmas is over. Santa already came (and I used a back-up stocking for her). But, she is not even a year old and I can guarantee she won't hold a grudge against me for this one. I am about halfway done with this monstrosity of a stocking (which I will felt when I am done knitting). I know if I put it away until next Christmas, it will be pretty hard to re-motivate on a half-knit stocking. So, I am trying to stick it out and finish it so it is already finished when Christmas 2012 rolls around. But, there is no pressure anymore (since I already missed the deadline), so I am hoping I can make myself finish in a timely matter. My only real push is that I am telling myself that when this stocking is done, I am going to knit something for myself (isn't that a novel idea?).
However, I do have some good knitting news which is that I managed to finish Phoebe's new sweater in time for Christmas! It is the Debbie Bliss dufflecoat pattern, except I left the pockets off of this one in hopes of making it look a bit more girly. I am happy with the way it turned out and also happy that it is a wee bit big. That means she will hopefully get a lot of use out of it!
What are you reading and knitting?
