I tried

..,but Izzy wanted to sleep knit (curl up in my lap and sleep). I’d planned to have both Christmas stockings embellished, blocked and seamed and ready for gifting tomorrow. I worked on them some yesterday and got both out today with hopes of having all sew-on embellishing complete and one seamed up. Izzy had a different plan. She was determined to nap in my lap. So I gave in to the precious little darling and let her have lap time not to mention the fact that it’s knit-whatever-I-want day. I put the stockings away with plans to finish them at my workplace tomorrow afternoon. I realized that setting up a table and seaming would have eliminated the lap cat problem. So tomorrow I’ll seam on a table without feline assistance.

I cast on East Gable as my new just (k)nits in progress project. This is a kit I received from Wooly Wonka. The yarn is their Brigit Sock in Thornapple colorway. I’m using US size 5 needles. The designer is Judy Marples and Anne of Green Gables was her inspiration.I’m on pattern repeat 5 of 7. I hope to finish it by Friday.2013-12-01 13.04.54

just (k)nits bound off BP Dude (aka Basic Bowling Pin Body) in GnomeAcres Squishy Gnome Do Ewe Lurve Me? colorway on US size 5 needles. I also cast on and just (k)nits bound off Runty Raccoon in Cascade 220, Berroco Vintage and Squiishy Gnome leftover from BP Dude. 2013-12-01 13.04.10This was also knit on US size 5 needles. I’m loving the critters from Rebecca Danger’s 50 Yards of Fun. I’m making them as gifts and love them so much I’m having difficulty giving them away. 2013-12-01 13.03.51

I also finished my commission piece and forgot to take photos of the finished object. I’ll post pictures of this next post.

My next just (k)nits for others is Small-Peanuts Elephant in Another Crafty Girl Worsted Our New Home colorway and Cascade 220 using US size 5 needles. I’d originally planned to use GnomeAcres Squishy Gnome in Lady Camo but Small-Peanuts is wearing a shirt and I didn’t have a good colorway to go with the camo. I wanted a pink elephant.

Till next time, no frogs, no tinks, just (k)nits.
