Shhh!

This is a hard time of year to write a blog post. Christmas is quickly approaching, and so many of us are making Christmas presents that are supposed to be a secret. How do you blog about something that is a secret??

So this is a super secret blog post about some of my handmade presents.

Just finished (as in today): Mom’s Christmas socks

Pattern: Rye by Tin Can Knits

Needles: US 4 / 3.5 mm

Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers, Colour 9489

So squishy. So quick to knit. I spent 8 days on these socks. You, too can finish these before Christmas! And sized from “baby to big” they will make a great gift for any member of the family. Plus the pattern is free. You can’t get better than that.

In Progress: Hubby’s Ribbed Hat

No pattern

Needles: US 5 / 3.75 mm

Yarn: Zauberball (unsure of the colorway) – held double

We bought this yarn together on our honeymoon. I started the hat on US 2 / 2.75 mm needles and quickly realized it was going to make me blind and angry. So I moved up to US 5 / 3.75 mm needles and am holding the yarn double. It’s still slow going, but I’m not going to stab someone with the needles halfway through the hat.

And that’s it. I am not knitting any other Christmas presents! It’s because of the huge sweater I finished just a few weeks ago. And my wedding. And honeymoon. You know, small things. I can’t remember the last time I made so few gifts. And I can’t wait to be knitting for me again!
