I doubt I'll make it.....

I have serious doubts that I will get my Christmas knitting finished in time, but that's okay. I'll come close. As of now, all that I have left to finish, is a hat for one of my nieces (which is no problem, I can knit that in a few hours) and a pair of mittens for my best friend. These mittens are just over half way completed, but I'm having problems finding more than a few minutes at a time to sit down and work on them. These mittens are another pair from the book 'Selbuvotter', but I'm taking a glove pattern (Annemor#8) and making it a mitten pattern, and changing the cuff pattern.

Here's some pics of some of the Christmas knitting to do have finished:

This hat is for my niece, Talia. The pattern is Butterfly Hat (Rav link). Since Talia is only a year and a half old, I went down a needle size from the pattern. I'm a tight knitter who usually has to go up a needle size, so I went down 2 needle sizes from what I would need to get gauge.


This is Foliage from I knit this one for my niece, Justice. I knit the worsted weight version.


And, I finally sat down and finished my Mom's mittens! I've needed to knit just the thumb on mitten #2 for over a month now. This pattern is NHM#7 from the book 'Selbuvotter'.


I also have a Halley's Comet Hat finished for my niece, Laney, but I keep forgetting to take pics of it. I used Knitpicks Swish Superwash worsted in the color Bordeaux.

I'm going to give it a valiant effort, and with any luck I'll get those mittens finished before Christmas.
