To Knit

Let’s see, how crazy am I? This is a not-entirely complete list of the things I am planning to knit between now and the end of the year-ish.

Korrigan – cardigan for Grace (not started)
Clara – dress for Grace (not started)
Everett – pullover for Sam (my pattern, not yet released) (not started)
Huckleberry – tentative name for my hat pattern (swatched)
Xeriscape – Christmas gift (halfway done)
French Press Slippers – for me (not started)
Let It Be – for me (finished one mitt)
Kitefish – for me (not started)
Catkin – for me (not started, but wound yarn!)
Cobblestone – Will’s anniversary gift (not started, still trying to find a few more balls of discontinued yarn)
Knight’s Set – pattern samples (three of about eight completed)

Plus I want to do a few more gifties.

Obviously I will not be making the shawls for myself until I get the rest under control. I want to release the Knight’s Set in January–I’d originally thought pre-Christmas, but it’s just not going to happen. I will hold off on the slippers for me and Will’s sweater until after Christmas, most likely. Clara is only sized up to Grace’s current size but I think I am going to fudge it a little and make it after Corrigan, so she can have a sweater first.

Can I make both kids sweaters by Christmas, plus additional gifts, and get my pattern samples done, too? I typically knit something for myself between Christmas and New Year’s, so whichever shawl I haven’t sneaked in sooner could go there, or the slippers. Then January for Will’s sweater and all the other projects I’ll most likely start between now and then (like the other patterns I am expecting yarn for any day).

I think I might need to insure my wrists against repetitive stress injuries.

    I think you’re going to LOVE catkin. I made my mine and enjoyed it the entire time I was working on it. Usually, I start getting bored by the time I’m done a shawl. I liked it so much I have a second one on the needles already, less than a month after finishing the first. I made the first one striped using a red toned variegated and solid black and my second one is not striped with an orange toned variegated and solid brown. I’ve only put it aside because I have gifties to start and finish before the holidays myself.

    Yeah, I already have yarn for two Catkins. I love Carina’s patterns! I’ve made Regina and Whippoorwill already.

    i have about 2 hours of knitting time a day. the thought of finishing that list before christmas is enough to give me a heart attack.

    i love that Xeriscape pattern! i think i’ll make one for agatha after i finish her winter hat. she is a toddler who loves to accessorize.
