I haven't been one to do a lot of Christmas knitting. With my farmers in my family, they aren't keen on most of what I knit. And they certainly would not appreciate hand knits.
But with Older Son finding time to get a girlfriend (henceforth to be known as Farm Gal on the blog) with a daughter (to be called Lil Farm Gal on this blog) I have been getting the knitted gift giving mood.
I have already gifted Lil Farm Gal with a sweater, and finished a hat for her on Thanksgiving. And as always, small dog included for detail.
I then started on a pair of fingerless gloves for myself, hoping it will help with the touch of arthritis in my one hand. And I managed to finish them this evening.
I now want to make some doll clothes for Lil Farm Gal, who is getting a special doll for her birthday, and maybe even another hat. Her mother says she is always losing them. Plus I found some sale yarn that is 50% angora bunny wool, in a soft gray. Dare I attempt a simple scarf for Farm Gal too?
I mean after all, what is another unfinished project or two?
I feel the need to cast on. So if you will excuse me, I have to go play with needles.

So with the October Mystery sweater finished, I picked up the needles again.
The Black Cotton Cardi is back in the primary knitting bag. But I took time out to knit another Calorimetry to go with my new coat. Using different yarn from my stash, and smaller needles it fits much better than the first one.
And with that done I started on a Christmas present with mostly stash yarn.
The multi-colored was left over from the sweater for Oldest Son's Girl Friend's Daughter. The hat will be for her too. Then....I have plans for doll accessories. And maybe a little something for her mother.
That black sweater may be in the knitting bag, but it may not see much action for a while.

The ends have been woven in and sniped off. So Gertrude was enlisted for another try on. Sweater number 9 is done.
The verdict? I love it! Warm and cozy. I do love Lambs Pride.
Now I have to wear it someplace where I can get some pictures with me wearing it. I am glad I signed up for the October Mystery KAL. Even if it did nearly take two months.
Now to cast on with some purple yarn for another Calorimentry ear warmer at a tighter gauge.
