Clapotis #3 and other holiday knitting
i better face it; i'm gonna be a knitting fool for the next month. i just finished my momma's set of 6 dishcloths. i got a "ribbed for her pleasure" scarf on the needles for my SIL (from the first Stitch 'n Bitch book). and this beautiful clapotis is for a friend of mine. it's made from noro kureyon, which is so much fun to knit with. my only complaint is that stitches don't drop very well. but it's pretty so that makes up for it! the next problem is finding more of this yarn in similar colors to what i'm using now. i knew i'd run out of yarn but i couldn't resist casting on!
my 2 youngest brothers are getting iPods for christmas, so i am thinking about knitting up some iPod sleeves for them. or maybe just get them each a gift card for starbucks or even for iTunes so they can download some music. i dunno. the goal for me is to be as crafty as possible and to spend as little money as possible. this year, money's not just funny, it's telling JOKES.
other brother and nephew...not sure what their gifts will be. maybe i can whip up those fuzzy dice for my bro's cadillac, and a knitted toy for the nephew? we'll see how my hands hold up. now...what gifts for my bro, SIL and nieces in texas? decisions, decisions.
