So we are 2 weeks away from Christmas and I have a little under half a shawl, 2 hats and 1 sock left to complete. It didn't sound like a lot when I had almost 2 months to knit all of my presents but somehow, time has gotten away from me and I've only managed to complete one sock and a pair of mittens. Hats are quick, so I'm not terribly concerned about them (plus I have one hanging around that I'm not attached to and can gift if I do run out of time) but the shawl concerns me. I'm getting tired of it, the pattern is very repetitive and not terribly interesting so right now I fee like it's a slough to get through. It will be lovely, but I don't anticipiate doing this pattern more than once. Also, there's no way I'm going to finish the second owl sock before Christmas. Those socks just take way too long to knit (I'm a slow cabler).
Since these are all presents I'll keep pictures under wraps until they are gifted. I know this isn't much of an update but I just wanted to let y'all know I am at least still knitting. I'm really excited about the patterns I can start in January but I'll share more on that later.
