Thing the first:
I may have a case of startitis. In the last two weeks, I bought this yarn destined to be socks.
And this yarn, also socks.
And this and this and this and this yarn.
That second picture is a really cool yarn by Regia that is sent as a scarf and then you knit it from the scarf so you can match the stripes.
And then spent several hours stalking Ravelry for patterns. I cast on this sweater for my nephew.
Out of this yarn that I also got:
Finally started the sleeves on this sweater for my niece (does this count as starting or finishing?)
Have you seen these yet?
They’re almost done, just the 2×1 ribbing for the second sock to complete.
I also made this today:
And we won’t talk about the queue of patterns I’m thinking about casting on.
Thing the second:
I am finally the proud owner of a shiny new vitamix. It was the demonstration on the store that put us over the top. The guy made HOT soup right there with nothing but ingredients and a vitamix. Turns out the blades skin so fast it creates heat and if you let it run for roughly six minutes, you get hot soup! I can’t tell you how impressed I am. We had hot soup for dinner last night that I made in fifteen minutes. Fifteen minutes!! With fresh ingredients. I felt like Midas. Dudes, this is incredible. I can’t tell you.
If I could find a way to combine knitting and this vitamix I would be on top of the world. Maybe I’ll knit the caraf a cozy…
But not until after Christmas.
36 days until Christmas and I’m going to have to knit every last one of them.
