Christmas 2012 is now in the books: the gifts have been exchanged, opened and even worn. Now I can post about the stealth knitting I have been working on since last March!
First up are the Melody Fingerless Mitts I knit for my daughter Libby. I picked up this kit at Vogue Knitting Live! in Chicago, and had fun knitting with beads for the first time. The yarn was JoJoLand Melody Superwash sock yarn. Beads were black size 6.
I have to admit that using March as a starting point for my Christmas Knitting really worked out well this year. I was finished with the majority of the knitting in November, with just the usual loose ends to tie up just before Christmas.
Now, I am nearly finished working on a commissioned scarf/wrap, and plan to cast on for the Claudia evilla knitted skirt in the Kauni gray ombre colorway for me! I also have plans to cast on the Rockefeller shawl by Stephen West, and that's for me too. You can see I have some selfish knitting planned to kick off the new year :-) And I had so much fun knitting with beads that I picked up 3 more packages of beads that match some of my stashed sock yarn, so more fingerless mitts are in my future, I'm sure!
Happy New Year!
