Well, finally, the pieces of Mom’s sweater are taking up Suki Cat’s queen sized bed in the guest room and are blocking. Finally! I can move on to my other gift knitting. However, so far, this sweater is and has been a true labor of love! With all the re-knitting, frogging and whatnot, my Mom deserves a beautiful hand knit sweater and that is what she is going to get for Christmas. The cables are exquisite and as soon as the pieces dry, I will sew them up, block once more and send it off to Mom for Christmas. It gets just cold enough in Las Vegas this time of year where she will need it.
Next on the gift knitting que, are scarves for my cousins, Kate, Katilyn and Anndee. None of them know they are getting one. Although I’m sure they wondered why I asked what their favorite color was. Honestly, I really am just happy at this point that I got Mom’s done. The cousins can wait. But even though I am a selfish knitter, I do like giving hand knit gifts.
Well, I better start winding yarn for the rest of the gift knitting, get a start on it anyway before I have to make dinner. Talk to you all soon.
