Knitting? What knitting?

Ahh, Sandie! I wish there was some knitting I could show you. Believe it or not, I’ve been doing very little knitting in the last month or two. No progress in things already on the needles, no casting on for a new project or two, no Christmas gifts (I’m afraid I’m a bit of a Grinch when it comes to Christmas). Nothing.

Well, there is one very small project I’ve started on but it really is insignificant. Shall I share anyway, at the risk of disappointing you completely?

Some time back, I made myself a simple pair of wrist warmers in an alpaca blend. I wear them a lot, especially in the mornings while I’m at my computer. They’ve begun to wear out.

I’ve been meaning to make a new pair, but just simply haven’t gotten around to it. (Darn those round to-its!)

Well, a couple of weeks ago, I did dig out another ball of the same yarn (different colour) and cast on for a new pair of wrist warmers. I’ve managed to finish one. Just one. Two weeks. And I’m not thrilled with it, really.

I did say there’s been very little knitting around here. Just saying.

  1. That's OK, that you don't have a lot of knitting happening right now. I know that you've had a lot on your plate this year. It's just that when I think of you, which is more often than you might realize, it is you and your beautiful knitting. Your hands are so talented and skilled. I'm sure they will get the "itch" before too long. In the meantime, a simple and basic pair of wrist warmers will just have to do. :)

    Sending good wishes that you and John enjoy a wonderful Xmas.
