So Tired

I can't believe how long its been since I posted, but I have a good excuse. See, I'm tired. (Please don't tell Sheepish Annie.)

I'm knitting for Christmas instead of shopping. My nieces are going to get the Mini-Clap (blogged here) and Diagonal Lace Scarf (blogged here), mittens and possibly hats. The mittens are all knitted. I just couldn't find the energy to take pictures of them in progress. Sorry. I will be washing and blocking this weekend...maybe The Husband will have the energy to take pictures. I just cast on for the first hat. I'm just going to keep knitting items as long as the yarn lasts. Oh yeah -- I'll leave it to my mother to decide who gets the mini-button hole bag. (Remember this thing?)

I also knit a Scrunchable Scarf using some gorgeous yarn from Brooks Farm. It knit up even more beautiful than I expected. It is a gift for my brother's girlfriend. (Look -- a picture, so what if its is a picture.)

I also got some more done on the Autumn Mystery Shawl. I'm actually 1/3 of the way through the last clue. Hopefully I'll find some time to finish it before the end of the year.

There's also some yarn that I want to blog about -- some really nice purchases and I'll be knitting my first* adult sweater.

Hopefully I'll find the energy to take pictures of recent gift purchases for etsy Friday. And to blog about my secret knitting project that's finally finished. And to tell you the exciting news. But I'm just too tired to do more tonight.

*I did knit a couple of sweaters in my first knitting life, but I didn't pay attention to gauge or how the yarn will work or anything. So, now I'm going to try again.

Thinking, pondering, calculating . . . wheels turning . . . gears meshing . . . ka-thip, ka-thip, ka-thip . . . Paper spits out. It reads: "Exciting news is related to tiredness"
