The Peddler's Pack

I've neglected blogging for the last few days, because I didn't want to show you a picture of 2.5 inches of St Brigid, and the still-unfinished sock (I'm decreasing for the toe, but Brigid is keeping me busy). Then I realized that I said, right up front, that this blog would also be about sewing, so:

here's some of what I've been working on for the last two days. I took this:

Aren't they pretty? I took a close-up for you, of my favourite one:

I am SO ready for Christmas. I have finished six of my 12 people, and have started the gifts for the other six. Now, normally I would be piously deploring the consumerism of Christmas, but some days I just can't help but be excited about what I'm giving people. However, I did get this, to remind my kids of the True Meaning.

(There's some irony here, but I can't quite put my finger on it.)

Tonight is Stitch 'n' Bitch, so there will be more progress to report as of tomorrow. I have pledged myself to finish the Lacy Scallops socks tonight, so there will definitely be an FO tomorrow (or perhaps I should say "soonish"), along with whatever my Knit Sibs are working on.

Here's my next project, which I'm going to tackle as soon as I post this:

Wish me luck.

Ooh, love, love, love those gift bags. (And hope to receive one.) Also like the Playmobil set, very nice. Well done, being so on top of the game!

BTW - no, I can't see your Christmas ticker at all. Wonder why?
