WIP Wednesday

Every week I’m surprised how fast we get to Wednesday. I don’t know where this year is going, but I would like it to slow down. It is almost time to decorate for Christmas. I’m happy to report that the stockings are done. They will be handed off to my aunt for her to deliver them to my cousin later this week. I need to get them blocked before then. I need to get on that, but I really hate blocking so I’m procrastinating as long as possible.

I’m still working on the weather map socks. They are moving along slowly. Very slowly. I finally turned the heel on the second sock. I hope to have them completed by the end of the week. I have plans for those needles.

I told my Mom I would make her socks for Christmas, so I would like to get started on them. Especially because I’ll see her next week and I have never written down how l knit her socks before I start the toe. I want to knit them far enough for her to try on so I can make her a good fitting sock. I’ll be writing down her foot length so I won’t have to measure the socks on her feet the next time I make her a pair.

After I finish her socks I’m going to make a pair of felted slippers for my mother-in-law. I make her a pair almost every year, and she wears them out almost every year. It is so nice to make someone something and know that it gets used. A lot.

When I finish the socks and the slippers I’m done with Christmas knitting. I’m excited to have a goal that I can accomplish without stressful end of December knitting.

I am hoping to go through my stash and pull out what I will never knit with. I’m planning a stash bash with my crafternoon group. Whatever isn’t taken I’ll donate. I am feeling overwhelmed with the amount of yarn in my stash and I think it will be freeing to let go of it. Please note that I am not counting sock yarn as stash because that will eventually be made into socks, so I’m not going to stress about that.

What are you knitting for Christmas? Do you ever get weighed down by your stash?
