We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Christmas Knitting...

For a belated jump onto the bandwagon!

So, I went to Bellevue, Kentucky while I was home for Thanksgiving and hit up a yarn store called Knit On. Amazing stuff they had there. And since I'm setting up a moratorium on yarn purchases until March, I indulged one last time. What you see above is my version of the Noro Striped Scarf done up in a slightly cheaper fashion. I'm using Noro Taiyo and Harrisville Designs Wool and Flax Blend and enjoying knitting a 1x1 rib scarf entirely too much. Don't get me wrong, there is other knitting happening, just not so much while I enjoy myself. I did finish a couple of dishcloths for my step-aunt, though.

Now to just motivate myself on the other Christmas projects instead of the scarf...

Swap project finished!

Last night I completed my big project for the Odd Ducks 30s and 40s Hollywood Glamour Swap! It took me almost a month of nearly continuous knitting, but it is complete. Too bad you won't see anything of it until my partner receives it. I couldn't get any decent pictures, so hopefully her camera is more effective, as I've already packaged it up. I'm just waiting on address confirmation before sending it off. I hope she likes her package. I can't wait to get mine!
