Ya know when you finish something but then look at your list and that something wasn't on your list, so you don't get to check anything off? Or am I the only one that hates that? Well, anyway, that won't happen with gift knitting this year. If you are knitting a gift that isn't for Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanzaa get some extra closure by telling us about it here.
I posted two kitchen towels that I finished on the blog a few days ago. Those were for a bridal shower.
I also promised my mom that I would knit her a lace scarf for her birthday. Her birthday is August 7, so she's getting the promise for her birthday. I'm traveling quite a bit in Sept, so I'm hoping to finish it by the end of the month. I've picked the yarn, Shimmer Lace in Sherry
. Alison helped me wind it on the Swift and Ball Winder (my first time--fun!). I'll post when I determine a pattern and cast on. It'll be my first lace project.
