busy, busy, busy.....

Now that Thanksgiving is past, the Christmas Knitting Countdown has begun! Today is November 23rd, and we now have just over a month to complete our holiday knitting. I have recruited DH to help out this year, but still he is only responsible for one gift (lucky Here, I am posting progress pics of some of the Christmas gifts I'm knitting this year. I've already finished a Montego Bay Scarf for one of my sisters, and the Baboon's ass socks I'm knitting for my other sister haven't been worked on at all since my last progress pic posting, I'm not posting a pic of the scarf DH is working on, and I'm also not posting pics of the sweater I've started for my niece Morgan. It just has a few rows done and isn't very interesting to look at yet.
But, anyway......

First, we have a progress pic of the afghan I'm knitting for my parents' gift. One side now measures 50", well, it's a square so each side measures 50". When you consider that I'm only 62" tall, this thing is BIG. And, that also makes me very glad that my parent's aren't much taller than I

And here we have the hooded cardigan I'm knitting for my niece, Talia. I love the way this yarn is pooling. It's Patons Decor in the First Spring Varg colorway, on size US7 needles.

and this one is the new and improved Cardigan for my niece, Laney. I wasn't happy with the old one, so I frogged it and started this one instead. I'm using rev st st for the back panel, the front panels are cabled on a rev st st background, and the sleeves are regular stockinette st.

Everyone, I bid you good luck on your holiday knitting endeavors!
