WIP: Fibonacci Sweater, Cedar Dancing Socks & Woven Fibonacci Table Mat

0

Wow!  I’ve totally fallen off of the blog train this week!  You probably know why, and even though I have paired down my list of things that I will actually complete for this Christmas, I am still knitting like a mad woman. Who has time to write.  I ended up working myself into a bit of a frenzy trying to knit 13 things in 54 days (what was I thinking?) and had some pain in my wrists… so ya, here I am with three things :)  A much easier load to handle, I think!

The fibonacci sweater is going fairly well.  I am done up to the arm pits on the body, and I am halfway up one sleeve.  I don’t know if I will get it done for christmas.  Miracles have happened in the past, but there is a lot of knitting yet to go, and my wrist is still a little bit sore (totally stress related…. relax right?)

I am really happy with it so far, and so is the hubster.  He is okay with me not finishing it in time, which is very good.

The most important thing to finish are the Cedar Dancing Socks.  They are a joy to work on, and are zooming right along… well sort of.  Considering the pain, they are going well enough, and I truly believe that they will be ready for Christmas.  The special person who will be wearing them will be super satisfied.

I am so in love with the way that the pattern works with this colourway (thank you Gladys!  I don’t know what I would have done without your guidance.  Nothing worse than an inapropriately matched sock yarn to pattern!

The second most important thing to finish was the gift for the gift exchange today at the GVWSG.  I am so excited to have finished what I will call the table mat (with all of the warping challenges, it would never have been long enough for a scarf!).  It is so pretty and soft and rich to behold.  Fibonacci really is perfect proportion!

I had yet to weave in the ends before this photo was taken.  Then, in all the flury that was this morning, I forgot to take finished pics of it! Can you believe that?

Overall, I’m feeling confident that I will be able to finish all that needs to be finished before Christmas.  It’s nice to take a little bit of the pressure off. I hope all of your christmas preparation is going smoothly, and that you are enjoying the process as much as I am!
