start of christmas knitting and more

Well, time for an update.

So I haven't been keeping up as much with this blog, in part because I have started another blog, for my new pregnancy, yep, woo hoo, I'm pregnant, I think the people who read this blog that I know already know about it so I can finally announce it on here, I am around 9 weeks, so still early but boy have I been tired and sluggish, and all the other fun stuff that goes along with it, though (knock on wood) I haven't experience any morning sickness, but everything else :0)

my other blog is just so my family and friends who are on the other side of the country can join in on my experiences and I can share pictures with them

I haven't done much Christmas knitting yet but I have at least started.
I have decided to make these wristlets for a few people for Christmas presents, I can usually make a pair in a day, so their are not too challenging, I am on my 3rd pair out of lets say maybe six?? The pattern is free and can be found here.

sometimes I usually just knit until it looks good not necessarily following the pattern exactly
here are the few that I have finished so far

the white is in Zara merino wool, red is DB alpaca silk, and the pink DB Cashmerino chunky, its great they only use less than 1 ball, good stash buster with leftovers

Here are more choices I have for the rest of them, all Debbie Bliss, I have a lot of her yarn

I knit the pink ones while trying out my new hand painted knitting needles, I have lots more in the making, but I am super lazy at the moment so their being painted very slowly.

I also have this fun yarn, I had stashed away for a while, not sure what it is, I don't have the ball band anymore, but its really cute, and I want to make something for my 8 year old niece with it, maybe a hat, but I'm not sure it would be enough


  1. Looks great. I'm starting the big Christmas knitting push now. Next year I swear I'm starting in February.

  2. Congratulations! I'm very happy for you. I'm sending "easy pregnancy" and "healthy mom and baby" vibes your way.

  3. Congrats on the baby!! Looks like you will be knitting some little booties soon.

  4. Congrats, that is so exciting to be expecting. I love DB yarn to. There is like tons on clearance at my LYS. I hope their will be some after Christmas. Their usually is and she sales 10-12 balls for like $25-30. Its mostly the cashmerino. Your Christmas knitting looks great. Love the Red ones. Good to see you back.
