Fortunately, the section of my brain that deals with the actual knitting (as opposed to writing about knitting) has survived the semester intact so far.
Vivian is underway, thanks mostly to my innate need to create order out of chaos translated into a nifty spreadsheet:
One hat, Felicity, is done:
One pair of mitts, in left over Dream in Color Classy, Fetching for Monica/Mum (haven’t decided who yet) is underway:
And the yarn for one thing that wasn’t on the list, a Wavy Feathers Wimple, has been ordered from LotusYarns on etsy, was dyed this weekend, and has been shipped. It’s going to be beautiful. Photo of yarn to follow when it gets here.
Somehow, in spite of the extensive Christmas knitting list, I have to knit a pair of French flag booties for a friend at work, a pair of tuxedo booties, so that I can rewrite the pattern to put up on Ravelry, and a pair, or two, of pretty, girly booties for a member of my MLIS cohort whose baby is due around New Years. I’m thinking of trying to do an applique knitted flower on a pale pink or white pair for a “cherry blossom” effect. Updates to follow.
