Knitting Frenzy

Thinking I would have the time, I am knitting some gifts for Christmas... Next time I do this, would someone thump me on the side of the head please?

Knitting for Christmas = stress
New never knit before patterns = stress
My kind of knitting: long and boring = stress because of the time it takes to knit something

So this coming Friday, I have signed to get knitting help for two patterns I am making for Christmas, after which I will be busy knitting up a frenzy in time to give out said gifts. That is, if I am able to make them independently after the knitting help.

I like patterns from Churchmouse Yarns and Teas.  If I lived close by, I would try to get my knitting help from them.

This is one of the projects on my knitting needles. I am doing this scarf for a man in my family and the colorway is called Overcoat. The yarn is British Blue Wool by Erika Knight.  It is a high quality, beautifully soft yet strong yarn.


One by One, Two by Two Scarf Project from Churchmouse Yarns and Teas

This colorway is called Overcoat

These colors are masculine and fun.  Check out my progress on this project on my Ravelry page.  I knit a whole section today, one of five. There's a lot of love in a piece like this...

Click, click,

Over and out.

Knitting is an enjoyable, relaxing hobby. Don't let the approaching Christmas season change that!

Stress? Retired! No stress allowed. Now throw me that yarn ball.
