So it is here… The 1st of July… and I am not ready….. okay maybe not to the standards I had in my mind.
I am 50% complete on the mittens. I have been trying to make sure I get a variety of colors and have been trying to spin more yarn to mix up the colorways. A friend is sending me some of her handspun which should add some pop to the garland.
I have not pulled anything together for my little diorama. I know I will need reindeer, a santa, snowmen, but I am debating on adding elves, and a yeti to that list…. I want what ever I make to kind of tell a story.
I want to make some of the Spilly Jane’s colorwork ornament mittens ( Yeah, I have a thing for mittens), when I saw that Knit Picks published these last summer I had to download a copy of the “Adorn” booklet.
I “suppose” I should also be working on the colorwork mittens I started last month ( although they are not exactly related to holiday knitting).
Oh yeah….. I also need to spin like crazy for Tour de Fleece 2016… GO TEAM NEST!
