I had a deadline, I am not keen on them are you? I always find I leave things to the last minute and then I turn into a shouty mama. My husband has gone away again this week, travelling close to where my parents live taking with him a big bag of presents. Getting it all sorted by Sunday meant that I saved quite a bit in postage so it was worth it really (so I keep telling myself). Of course having a deadline might mean that I am ultra busy for a bit but it does mean that on the first day of December I have made quite a few of the presents that I intend to this year and they are wrapped and on their way to where they need to be. I am not revealing what was taking most of my time in the past week, just going to offer the above photo for now. You will have to come back next week to find out what else is in that bag.
So with that finished what else am I working on? Well several of the projects I was working on last month and a few new ones.
I have knitted a cowl for Alice and have some mittens for her on the needles, I finished this one yesterday afternoon and have cast on the second one. A portable and quick project.
A couple of play capes in the making for two small super heroes. Should you feel in need of one, there is a tutorial here.
Alice will get her bag, and so will a couple of other people. My search for feltable jumpers in charity shops was highly successful so I will be making a couple of other presents from the fabric too.
The quilt is still a pile of squares, I really want to get that finished in time for Christmas as I missed the birthday deadline......
