Commuter knitting this week has continued to be the Featherduster shawl in Angel Print. I am now up to the fifth repeat of the chart so there are getting to be quite a few stitches. TV knitting has been Day 12 of the 2010 Advent Calendar scarf. I can't believe so many people actually knit this scarf in 24 days, each step is taking me several knitting episodes.
I tend to keep each project in a separate tote bag and I had collected quite an accumulation due to not emptying out old project bags. So I sat down this week and went through the entire collection, emptying out old project bags and putting away patterns, needles, notions etc. in their rightful places. I found the Twice-Doomed Tshirt in one bag, so now I am feeling guilty about it. It's knitted up to the armholes and I just need to determine where the pleats should be. This is where I wish I had a mannequin that is my size. Hopefully in my next sewing room I will have such a thing.
I bound the baby quilt and sewed on the label, so it's all ready to take to work for its recipient next week.
We've got to pack up DS and take him up to Oxford for his interview soon. He is alternating between confidence and nervousness, let's hope he strikes the right balance between the two for his actual interview. It would be great if he gets an offer but we've been told by many people that it is such a lottery to get in because they get so many able students applying.
I hope that if you are making anything craftwise for Christmas, that it is all under control and on deadline. I'm not really doing anything else specially for Christmas, I knit the socks for DH and the two snowmen decorations. I just want to keep moving quilts onto and off the frame to get all my tops done.
