Yarn Along--down to the wire
I am joining Ginny again this week for her Wednesday Yarn Along.
I finished binding off the bottom of Adrian's Henley last night in bed, after having put it aside for about a week in order to make a couple of pairs of felted slippers which are to be gifts (sorry, can't show you those yet!). I still have to sew the leather soles onto the slippers.
I want to cast on a collar/neck warmer as a gift for another person...and yes, I know how close we are to Christmas, thank you very much.
My rather pathetic local library (pathetic if you have ever lived in a big city and had access to real libraries) never seems to have any of the books I am interested in reading, so my options are either to buy them used on Amazon or eBay, or to wait for them to come to me through the inter-library loan system. I waited three weeks for this one, How Children Learn. I am just barely into it, but already enjoying the writing of a man who finds young children not just entertaining and adorable, but interesting. My mom is sadly of the opinion that babies, toddlers and young children are just sort of blobs until they can have a mature conversation with you. I very happily do not share this distaste, and I find children a wonder at every age so far (I say "so far" because my oldest is only 12).
Are you doing gift-knitting right down to the wire?
