minimal progress here ...


i managed to decide that using the size 7 turbos is probably my best route. i knitted a ball's worth of silk garden yesterday ....

so, that's what 2 balls of silk garden looks like in entrelac!




i also managed to sqeak out 12 more rounds of my lace leaf sock. the pattern is quick to memorize, so it's fairly mindless knitting.

though, lots of knitting and making has been on my mind lately. i actually have a list of goals and gifts to make for christmas, and i find myself spending more time staring at the list and not getting anything done!

i have a feeling there's going to be lots of sewn gifts this holiday, as i can sew faster than i can knit. or, i could just kinda freak out and get absolutely nothing done! (it's happened before)

And the sock too!!!

I know what you mean about sewing quicker...that is me too. I really wanna knit faster though I really do...but alas I am a slow knitter ~sigh~
