YOP #51

Two days of school left...and my mojo returned!  So I have finished 5 Christmas gifts in the past 4 days...I have been working almost nonstop this weekend and my thumb is wrecked right now..I alternated between knit and crochet, but my right thumb still bears the brunt of the work and is achey right now..

I also worked for a bit on my Have I Ever Steered You Wrong? Socks....I'm on the leg and they fit the best of any socks I've made so far...maybe toe-up is the way to go?

I have started two hats for myself....and a project owl I bought in a kit.....

In other news, it spit some snow today, but it didn't last....we are going to have a rainy Christmas, but no white stuff...sad just doesn't feel like Christmas without snow...

I've also received a bunch of new yarn....I'll show those sometime this week...and I'll be going on a somewhat yarn-buying embargo for the New I have plans to go to Norway!!!!!!  I'm so penpal invited me to visit, so gonna go this coming summer, if all goes well....and she has already talked about visiting some yarn shops there, as she is a knitter and just getting back into it!  So need to save my money for the trip....but will still stay in the yarn clubs.....I'm thinking I'll bring yarn over to gift to her..and that will leave a space in my suitcase for new yarnz...good plan?

You have completed A LOT of projects this year. Very good. I hope you DO make it to Norway. That would be a wonderful adventure and to have someone there that knits as well? What more could a crafter ask for.

Christine said...

Look at your list! That is amazing.
I am confident you will get to Norway! Looking forward to reading all about it.
