Next on the Xmas lineup: Alpaca Tie

Ok, with 18 days left til Xmas, what's the score? 2 items completed and delivered, including the Toddler Cardi, delivered on Sunday. Here's one last shot of that project, this time with the lovely dark red buttons on (click for larger image):

4 items in progress - Meadow Flowers, Fuzzy Stripey #2, Narcisse and the latest addition: Alpaca Tie. I spent over an hour choosing a color combination from the many many colors of alpaca in my stash. My chosen colors should look familiar to anyone who reads Knitty or KnitFlix - it's the same colors as the Cross Country Chullo! Have a look:

The Traditional Ties pattern by Shirley Paden comes from Interweave Knits Winter 2004 issue. I adjusted the width a bit by comparing the tie in progress to ties in my spouse-o's collection. He says this is the widest a tie can possibly be in the year 2004. This may mean a bit of adjustment in the decrease rate to make sure I can get to 53 inches of tie.

Zero progress on the other Xmas items and no plans yet for the Xmas item #7 - the plaid scarf - but with my 4 WIP's trundling ahead, I'm feeling a bit stretched but positive!

Outstanding! I love the cardi and the buttons you picked out, and the tie is smashing.

Just got Interweave Knits from your mom and the tie patterns are very exciting. Unfortunately, ties are yet another thing Adam does not wear, but he might get one anyway.

It doesn't take much imagination to think of issues that can occur when ordering custom t-shirts for a large group. Talk to any reunion planner and they will probably agree that ordering shirts for a large group can be a challenge.
