Over Co-MITT-ment

So there I was, thinking I didn’t have much sewing or knitting in progress and that the holidays were a million miles away, when suddenly Chris Evans on Radio 2 tells me it is only 6 WEEKS TIL CHRISTMAS!
I’m sorry… what?!  The man can’t count!
But, um, yeah, time is creeping on and I need to get my ducks in a row (before I shoot them).

What I still need to knit:

  • One and a quarter Cambium socks:  I was speeding ahead and then ground to halt – why?  One more evening should finish Sock One.

  • Half a Liquorice Twist Glove:  these aren’t a gift (I need them too much myself!) BUT I plan to use the leftover yarn to make:
  • Mitts or socks for The Boy.  Now, this is a no-brainer because he has incredibly wide feet, so the obvious thing to do is knit a pair of  Pikes Mitts in worsted weight yarn.  But then I spotted the November Mystery Moody Stockings over at Sock Knitters Anonymous:  a man-friendly pattern that I would really love to knit…  oh dear.

I need a plan.

So this is how it goes:

1 – finish the Liquorice Gloves
2 – knit the Lotus Eater Mitts
3 – finish the Cambium socks

Re-assess:  is it still November?

if YES:  knit the November Mystery socks (and hence eligible for the SKA November challenge)
if NO:  knit Pikes Mitts

Sorted!  : )

And to fuel all this knitting, let’s all eat Chocolate and Hazelnut Cookies from my latest library book find:  Peyton and Byrne’s British Baking…  though I am disgruntled to report  that a rogue hazelnut broke my food processor when it got stuck under the blade and fused the motor.  Mutter mutter mutter.

Nice biscuits nevertheless!
