Trial and error

After much trial, error and frogging, I finally made it off of Chart 1 of PFS again, and stuck a lifeline in there so fast. I'm started the second feather pattern on Chart 2 this morning, and hope to be back to where I was by Sunday, but next week the Jaywalker socks are going to be bumped to the top of the knit list, so I can have them done by the morning of the 24th. I only hope they will fit H's foot, since they are a tad too tight for me. I turned the heal on Saturday, and should finish the gusset of the first sock today, so I don't think I will have a problem.

We are 90% of the way done with holiday shopping. Saturday was all about shopping for C while he was with is grandparents. We got him a ... Well, you are going to have to wait until after the holidays to find out.

I did decided to gift out my Swallowtail Shawl to S's grandmother, since she is so hard to shop for, and it is small enough for her to get on and off in bed. I think in January I will start holiday knitting for next Christmas, knitting socks for everyone, but I haven't really decided yet.

I also want to say I hate the lighting in our house for trying to get pictures. S hates having any overhead light on in the evening, and it is too dark to use natural light when I get home, so I try to get photos on the weekend, but we are too busy.

Good for you on getting so much shopping done already. Dh and I will be doing marathon shopping on Monday and Tuesday. Wish us luck :o)

Lifelines are a great thing, aren't they?
