This week has been one in which many finished objects appeared at once! I love weeks like this. It’s one of the (only?) benefits to having a bunch of projects on the needles simultaneously: you feel like a champ when you finish so many in a row!
First, some mitts for my wonderful aunt for Christmas:
|in Malabrigo Rios, colorway Azules|
I will probably write this pattern up after the holidays. They were simple and quick but I think they’re quite pretty. I hope she likes them!
Next up is a pair of socks for my mom, which fulfills half of my sock goals for December, yay!
|in STR LW, colorway Rocktober|
The pattern is Unisex Slip by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (a.k.a. the Yarn Harlot, a.k.a. my knitting idol). I really enjoyed this pattern. It’s super simple but still fun and one of very few patterns that could have looked ok with such a crazily variegated colorway. I was surprised my mom wanted them, but she saw me knitting them a couple of months ago and claimed them so they’re hers.
I have another FO as well, a neckwarmer for my cousin, but that one is currently blocking so pics will come later. Finally, my last FO of the week is not knitting related: I successfully defended my master’s thesis! Despite the fact that I need to make many revisions and have about a month’s worth of more work to do at this school, I’m still considering the defense a finished object. 🙂 I’m officially a master of science, now! (Saying that just does not get old!) It’s tempting to start relaxing in the face of all of this glorious finishing-up-ness, but there is still lots to do and lots to knit, so I can’t get too comfortable, now, can I? Christmas is less than 10 days away, aaahhh….
