Even though we have all the other preceding months warning us of December’s arrival, suddenly, it’s here and the crazy Christmas knitting marathon begins.

On a whim I decided this year that I would indulge in some Christmas knitting.  If I had this idea in um…July, it would have been great.  It’s crunch time now and I’m still 6 Christmas knits short and I keep getting more “requests” everyday from family that they would “really, really, really love a handknit gift this year please, please, please”!  I just can’t say no to this sort of plea which is why I have been knitting like a crazy woman. 

I finished a pair of Fetching mitts using Malabrigo Silky Merino.  Crazy soft!  I took this picture when I was half way through the knitting, but trust me, the pair is done.  I just have to steam block and weave in the ends and this project will be 100% complete, woot woot!

I’ve also finished a Honey Cowl using Tosh DK :: warm and cushy.  Here it is on cast on day. (FO pictures of all these quick knits coming soon)

Then there’s this project I’ve been knitting for the hubster.  (No specific deets or pictures yet because he reads my blog sometimes)  I’m torn about this design because I don’t know if it will work for a guy.  Although, the yarn is swoon-worthy Madelinetosh Eyre so maybe I could pull this off?  Let’s see, I will go to Plan B if this goes south.  At this point, I don’t have a Plan B, eeep!!

So, do you have any Christmas knitting plans?

    You always pick the yummiest colours … I’m drooling! Aren’t the Fetching mitts a fun knit? I’ve made several pair and never tire of the pattern.
