All those Christmas presents finished and wrapped! I’m so glad I only bit off the one big crocheted present, because I wouldn’t have been able to finish much more than that.
In a pretty awesome turn of events, this week at work has been insanely quiet. Folks have been slowly trickling out & going on vacation, so there’s not much dev work going on (and consequently, not many of them asking me questions about the design). I’ve been catching up on watching some education videos, so I brought some crochet to work on while I watch (it really does help me concentrate better!) Yesterday I started on a car seat blanket for my friends who are having their first baby, due next May! It probably will take me that long, because rows and rows of hdc are booooooring, both to crochet and to photograph (so no picture of that).
Today I am starting on a hat for my boyfriend (which he asked for). Maybe it should have been a Christmas present, but I wanted to make him exactly what he wanted, something he would definitely use and wear, and I couldn’t ask him about it if it were a surprise (which it most definitely would have been if it were a Christmas present! I’m a purist 😉 So I agonized over the pattern, and he loved all the options that I picked out to show him; and then I agonized over the colors, and he loved those options too. Finally he told me that he would love anything I made for him. (I know, I know, he’s the actual best. I’m keeping him 🙂 I’ve made this pattern before, and from what I can remember, it went pretty quickly. So who knows, maybe he will get it for Christmas after all! Now that I’ve jinxed myself….
What are you knitting / crocheting this week?
