So many things to knit, so many deadlines!
First, I promised you an update on the Birthday Socks.
I'm almost done the heel flap. I find I'm actually pretty productive at a Knit Night. That's part of why I go.
Next up is my Test-Knit. These have a July 31 deadline, so they're rather looming over me right now.
But, there's not a lot more to do with them. I've only got 10 more rows of the chart, and then the toe decreases. Since I'm stuck at home today waiting for a repairman to show up (and discovered that due to an emergency call somewhere else, they're not coming today. . . urgh!) I might as well make good use of my time.
And finally, a new project to this blog, my Christmas Scarf.
/I made my father fingerless gloves last year for Christmas (this was before I was on Ravelry, so the project isn't there), and I was weaving in ends while in the car to his place on Christmas morning.
He just laughed about it, and didn't really mind./
So yeah. Lots of deadline knitting over the next few weeks. The ability to play video games and knit is really helping me get through all of it. I'm currently re-playing Mass Effect 1 but I've bumped the difficulty to Hardcore. It's not easy. I get lots of knitting done while waiting for the Mako's* shields or Shepard's health to regenerate. . .
In addition to this stuff, there's other things on my needles too, as you probably well know if you've read some of my other posts. This includes the Birthday Gloves, which I haven't really touched since last update. There are also more Christmas/Birthday gifts in planning -- you can see them on my Ravelry Queue here, if you're curious.
And yes, some of those are Christmas/Birthday 2014 plans. Those are things where I've already teased out subtle hints about design and colour from the recipient so that I know they'll like it, and I'm not really worried about those at all beyond having things written down.
It's going to be busy.
*the Mako is a drivable tank that you can take to various planets in-game. It has shields, but they take a while to recharge after getting shot.
