Ben’s Sweater: I thought the end of this project was in sight but boy was I wrong. I had finished both sleeves down to the cuffs and was waiting for Ben to try on to see if the length was good. When he tried it on we discovered the sleeves are too tight from the elbow to the cuff. Argh!!
January Blanket: Handspun Manx Loaghton, 3-ply aran weight, 1,460 yards. Decided to add one additional 15 stitch repeat so I cast on 192 stitches. I went up a need size to #9 and have knit about 13 inches.
Noromania: Bought 18 skeins of Noro Kureyon (Aran weight) to make a blanket for Mark.
Knitting on the angel from the knitted nativity scene kit.
Planned for the next two weeks:
Add a bumper to Minnie’s wool cat bed
Wind a warp for Monk’s Belt weaving
Ongoing: Piano, 9 songs
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, What Child is This?, Angels We Have Heard on High, O Come All Ye Faithful, O Christmas Tree, O Holy Night (longest song), Away in a Manger (with chords), Auld Lang Syne, Grand Old Flag
