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:
- A pair of Lotus Eater Mitts
- 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!
