Fell Off

Fell off the “no knitting Christmas gifts” bandwagon.  As I clearly declared might have hinted at earlier, I was drawing a line in the sand about pondering whether to make any knitted gifts.

Then I found the lovely Brambles beret in the Deep Fall Knitty 2010, which conveniently comes in various sizes and slouchiness versions.  Then some yarn that I had in my stash completely leaped out at me and onto my needles, and before I knew it, there was a lovely beret in the (sadly discontinued) Llana Grossa Come yarn.  This yarn is wool, cotton, and cashmere, which is a perfect blend for the SF Bay Area, and has incredible stitch definition.

This one will be for Rachel, and the next one for her sister Allison. Project details on Ravelry here: Revknits Brambles

They are going so fast, I might do more gifts.  I know, I know!

  1. There’s just something about December that does it to a knitter, I think. I think I’ve got it under control, but it means any sweaters for me and even mittens and socks for my kids are put on hold for a bit.

    • Thanks. I think part of the issue is that I want to knit myself a sweater, but I don’t have the yarn yet, so it’s not like I’m knocking off on a big lovely thing for me.
