This month was pretty successful. It was easy to fit in some knitting in the evenings, no matter how tired I was or what we were up to. My side of the couch still looks like a yarnpocalypse but I did end up making a lot of lovely things.
A baby blanket for my friend A, expecting a baby girl.
A hat and scarf made from the leftover yarn from the baby blanket, donated to my work Christmas Market fundraiser going on next week.
Tiny booties and a partly mohair hat for A’s baby girl.
Baby booties and a blanket for our friends L and K’s impending baby.
A new warm toque for me when the first wintry blasts came in this month.
Booties and a blanket for another friend of mine who is expecting their first child, who will receive them in a couple of weeks.
As you can see, a mini-baby boom happening among my friends right now. I didn’t even finish the *other* baby blanket and booties for my other friend expecting as well. But they’re due a little later so I have a bit of time.
I’m still working on my Hitchhiker scarf, but it’s getting close to being done.
And then I have the Advent Scarf from Ravelry to catch up on.
But, since we’re starting December shortly, I’ll be doing my last month theme. I’m also heading on a quick vacation for the next week, so knitting will have to wait here until I get back.
I decided, since there will be so much stuff going on this month, that I wanted to explore something that would be quick but still artistic, and something I could do while being present in the moment. So I will be Documenting December, and posting one picture per day to feature something from that day. This will be cross-posted to Instagram as well.
I’ll try to post something more narrative from my travels in the next week as well. I’m excited, as I’ll be visiting three new countries I’ve never been to, and a different part of a country that I’ve been to three times already (not counting layovers). :)
