Holiday Knitting?

I finished the cable and coin lace shawl, but it hasn't been blocked yet.

I also finished a pair of mitts for moi last night at Bella Espresso.

And I've been spinning; since I knit every weekday on the train, on Monday knit night, and evenings at home, I decided to spin on weekends. Then I woke up in the middle of Saturday night with cramps in the top of my right foot from too much spinning!

I started a knit hat for myself (DROPS pattern) until I realized the key to the chart doesn't use English standard thingamajigs and the key is printed in Finnish, or Swedish, or whatever; it's now been scanned and emailed to a linquist friend who is trying to deciper for me.

Knitting for Christmas gifts? HA! It's all about ME!

  1. Ahhhh, I've had those cramps before. Just means you need to spin MORE. But, when it happens, point your toes towards your knee. Works for me. :)
    And those patterns? Shouldn't they also be printed in the (Main) language of the country of sale? Just a thought.
