*Sigh* As much as I love Christmas, the introvert part of me likes the quiet week following a little more. A return to more healthy eating, a slightly slower pace of doing things and having my family at home.
Don't get me wrong, I do love the feasting and drinking that comes with Christmas! It is the one time of year that I make cinnamon rolls, and who doesn't enjoy an extra round of one's favorite adult beverage!
As I promised before, here is a glimpse into this year's knitting presents. I like to pick one pattern that will work for most, if not all, of my recipients and just mix up the color palette.
To make this work with my needs/time restraints/budget, I resized it to require only one skein of yarn. The first several rows I knit with a very tight gauge and then loosened as I went on. This meant that the cowl was close-fitting at the top of the neck and more loose towards the shoulder.
Do you have a method for accomplishing your Christmas knitting list?
