WIP Wednesday - December 21, 2011

I've been working like mad on my holiday knitting, taking breaks here and there to work on non-holiday things as well. I finished a last-minute gift last night, and thought I'd cast on something not holiday related as a treat for myself.

I haven't tried my hand at colourwork in a really long time, so I figured now is the time to try again.

This hat will be pretty naughty when complete. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out, and if I left enough slack in the floats for the hat to stretch properly once worn...

Giftmas Knitting - Zooming Right Along

When I started my giftmas knitting, my list seemed a little daunting. I had 2 commissions as well as a handful of other items. Now that I've completed a few things, and perhaps an item or two not on the list, it doesn't seem so bad. Although, I'm unsure if I can manage 2.5 socks before the big day....

Here's what's been done so far:

Commission Knitting #1 & 2:

Giftmas Scarf:

Some unplanned hats:

I won't post pics of the socks just yet, I don't want to ruin the surprise!

WIP Wednesday - December 7, 2011

With all the holiday knitting I have going on right now, I have several WIPs. This week, while at work (on lunch breaks and such) I have been working on socks. I'm particularly happy with these as it's the first time I'm using a yarn I dyed myself :)

Here's hoping this post goes unnoticed by the intended recipient of these socks ;)
