Knitting content!! Whhoooohoooo! The photo is a bit dark because it's been raining for the last 24 hours and it's hard to take a good photo. It's that cold rain that you get in the winter when it's not cold enough to snow but precipitation is falling. Since it's been cold here, we'll play the "if this were snow, we'd have over a foot by now" game. We play that game all winter. Of course, it rains more than it snows here.
This is a photo of my first finished facecloths. They are intended as a gift for some people who don't read the blog. They probably don't know what a blog is so there's no worries about revealing a secret. They are made of cotton (of course) and are a feather and fan pattern. They feel nice and I now understand the allure. Pk commented on how good they feel and that he might like to have one. I told him after the holidays I'd make some for us. I'm almost finished his socks and then I'm not doing any more knitting for the holiday. I am feeling the need to do something that has no deadline and is just for fun. I am not a good deadline knitter and don't like the pressure involved. And I didn't do much, some small things for my immediate family. I don't know how people who choose to do major projects stand the stress! I did some spinning for the first time in a week. I missed it. I didn't realize how much I would miss it and reading the ravelry threads made it worse. The wheel is in my bedroom for the time being as the Christmas tree is taking up the bulk of the living room right now. It's kind of nice because I can spin while Pk plays on the computer and we're in the same room.
Tomorrow is Friday and should be an easy day at work. We're taking the social rehab program people to a local restaurant for lunch. We go out for lunch at the holidays each year. I'll finish my work in the morning and then hopefully, be done after lunch. Hopefully. Cross your fingers. I'd really like it if I could leave early.......

Good luck getting off! 66% of my bosses are off tomorrow. I wish I could leave early!!

Lovely facecloths!

Yeah, I finally put the handknit facecloths in the pocket in our shower curtain. They feel so nice!

And I certainly sympathize about trying to get photos when it's so dark.

What did you knit those with? Sugar and Cream? VERY nice!

welcome to the world of dishcloths or facecloths or whatever you want them to be. They were a huge part of my return to crochet years ago- I read about them on the net and they were small and easy. I've about a dozen from 8 years ago that I still use!

How lovely to spin and sit near PK. I look forward to being able to do that here.

Pretty--I keep thinking I should do some of those too!!! I've tried Christmas knitting differently this year. I make as many projects as I can fit in sanely. I start in September. And then I distribute to the people who really like the knitting, randomly, as I see fit.

So far, I'm not feeling any angst--I'm starting to wonder if there's not something wrong with me!
