There has been knitting...

I did manage to crank out a few FOs in the last 2 weeks - a product of the fact that if I wasn't working/sleeping, I didn't do much other than knit.

I finished the Speedy Yet Effective Shawl #1 aka Mom's Horribly Late Birthday Shawl:
simple yet effective #1 post blocking
Followed by Speedy Yet Effective Shawl #2 aka Aunt's Not Quite So Horridly Late Birthday Shawl...
simple yet effective #2 blocking
Knit out of 3 skeins (2 different colourways) of SWTC Karaoke.

And even though I had intended to give my friend Ute My Soho Called Scarf for Christmas, I realized that the Soho yarn is on the scratchy side, and so I knit a (Noro Striped Scarf-inspired) Mille Colori Striped Scarf for her.

The colour changes make it interesting enough to keep knitting the 1x1 rib, and the simple 1x1 rib makes it easy enough to knit during other activities - like watching the Raptors game that we went to last Friday. I cast off this morning, exactly 36 hours after going to see a movie with Ute.

And I swear by all that is holy that I am going to get started on a real sweater for me this week.

No excuses, tomorrow is SnB and you can start a little something for yourself then! I have some great new books I'll bring if you need inspiration. Sensual knits has some great sweaters in it.

Everything is beautiful, I am sure they will love your gifts. I definitely agree, it is time to start something for your self!
Enjoy and happy knitting!

Hey, I like your eyelet refinement of the simple but effective shawl, enough so that I'm probably going to copy you at some point.

Wow, those shawls were fast! Love the blending of the colors on the Noro scarf. Course anything knit in Noro makes me lightheaded.
