december: week 1

do you hear them? the jingling sleigh bells? i have, and now i can't stop the gift knitting.

birthday cowl and toasty in malabrigo worsted, "continental blue" colorway


darkside cowl in malabrigo worsted, "polar morn" colorway

i also have been (sorta) knitting the adventskalendar, though until i find some suitable green and yellow yarns, this will sit for a bit.

That cowl/toasty combo is the business! I need to lay my hands on some malabrigo worsted pronto.

Oh! I just love your new banner! So cute!

All of your knits are great. I especially like the hat though. There is something rustic and masculine about it.

I, too, am knitting fast and furiously. But that's just part of the fun.

I'm hooked on holiday knitting right now, too. Your advent calendar is looking so cute! I need to buy more green yarn, too -- otherwise it's a total stashbuster for me.

Wow - great progress on the gift list! I love that malabrigo and that hat. I am working on my little hats and mitts for my calendar too - I think mine will be done for next year.

OMG! I just love your new banner :) Perfect.

And look at the gift knitting! Go you! I love the toasty pattern, but put it with that cowl and malabrigo, even better!

Jealous of your advent calendar beginnings :) Looks great!

those are some beautiful gifties -- very lucky people in your life, I think. I really love the polar morn colorway, especially in that diagonal-lined pattern...
