I feel like this year is slipping by fast. Only one month to Christmas, and still shopping to do, apart from having plenty of cards and wrap which I over bought last year, only 2 presents bought so far Fortunately none of my knitting is Christmas related so no pressure there. I have made a panforte which is tucked away and also the puddings are made.
Currently on the needles is Baby Ferris for Jessica. Using King Cole Baby Comfort DK, in a berry red.
Easy enough pattern but I have made a couple of changes. I did the back in one piece rather than two and made 2 x 2 rib cuffs as I didn't like the stocking stitch bands, also it was nigh on impossible to get 50 stitches on it! So I went with 38 sts and 7 rows and then increased to 50 sts on the 8th row.
I also made up a quick pair of mitten for Jess on Sunday. She is a finger sucker, so I left the end of her left one undone so she can still get to her fingers but the rest of her hand is warm. No photos as I forget.
Tell me about your preparations for Christmas, are you knitting up a storm? Given yourself a break and not making gifts this year? Done your shopping, have it all wrapped? Calm or panicking?
