Xmas knitting and knitting in public

Despite more chatting and teaching at Knitting Meetup on Wednesday night, I have finished finished finished 3 of my Xmas projects and made good progress on a fourth. Of course, the Snowman was finished & shipped last week. This week's progress is:
  • Fuzzy Stripey #2 (this photo doesn't show cute square buttons, but they are on!)


  • Toddler Cardi - suddenly and unexpectedly, this project is fully done! I found a half-finished girl-colored cardi in my UFO pile and figured out how to adjust the sleeves to be wearable and, hey, presto, finished prezzy!


  • Meadow Flowers - finished 1 length of edging, 2 more to go. This will probably be the next Xmas item finished.


After a pretty dry spell in November, I was able to knit-in-public twice this week, hurray! Sunday at SnB SJSU, where I rudely threatened violence towards Lisa, a new member who had actually finished all her Christmas knitting on November 28th. Janice talked me down and honestly, I have to admire someone who can plan ahead that well. I'm just mad 'cause I'm not that cool. I worked on Meadow Flowers edging and the Step Above socks.

At Santa Clara County Knitting Meetup on Wednesday, I worked on the Step Above socks - I've now got the entire leg portion finished except the waste yarn section. Woo! Knitting Meetup had 17 peeople at our special extra session, including 6 new gals. So I guess that didn't suck. I set up a poll today to ask the group what their ideal meeting frequency would be. Also, I gotta remember the name tags next time!

Congrats on finishing so many projects. Keep the momentum going and you'll have Meadow Flowers and the Step Above socks finished in no time!

Wow, you're just churning those FO's out, and they all look wonderful. I'm really excited about those ASA socks. Entrelac socks. What a concept!

The fuzzy stripey and toddler cardi looks super Mary! I'd wear them both if they would fit more that my hand. :)

Thanks, gals! I really appreciate your support. It's been a busy, fun knitting season, but sometimes it's a little hard to let go of all these great items. Having the photos and your comments makes it easier to let them go!
