The past 5 weeks have been incredibly busy with starting a new full time job, Thanksgiving, helping with my church’s Christmas on the Campgrounds event (which was a huge success this year), and then having someone I know pass away this past week. There hasn’t been a lot of time to knit. Since I have been working I haven’t wanted to start anymore projects on top of my mom’s Christmas gift, which won’t be completed in time for Christmas. I am hoping to have it done by mid January.
In addition to completing my mom’s Christmas gift, I have two more projects that I have to work on during the early part of 2015. One of my cousin’s and his wife are expecting their first baby, and they are waiting to find out the gender of the baby until the baby is born in June. So I am going to be making two baby blankets for them, both of which could be used for either a boy or girl. I picked up a skein of a really pretty yellow (Lion Brand Pound of Love in Honey Bee) and a skein of a really pretty turquoise (Lion Brand Pound of Love in Turquoise) at Joann’s while I was out running errands today. I had a 20% off the entire purchase coupon, in addition to the two skeins both being on sale (the sale price was $3 off the the regular price), which meant that I got a good deal.
Besides the project I am trying to finish up, as well as the two baby blankets I am going to make, my knitting plans for 2015 are looking like, another wool scarf for myself, more hats for children as I have plenty of yarn, and maybe a few sweaters, but we will see how many I get made with my work schedule and every thing else.
I also put together a video of the sweaters I completed during 2014, so if you would like to check it out, you can find it here.
