We finally got our marriage certificate in the mail today! Exactly 2 months and 1 day after the wedding date. Even though I had to call to “remind” them about the fact that we hadn’t received the license, I am excited anyway. Now onto name changing (I hyphenated), which should suck as I have to hit the Social Security and the DMV which are both notoriously slow at getting ANYTHING done. We’ll see how long I stand in line… I’ll make sure to take my knitting with me.
I have decided that I would really love to knit at least 80% of my Christmas gifts this year. However, starting so late, I’m not sure how much of that I will actually be able to do. Hopefully enough so that I don’t feel like a complete slacker, as I often do with knitting! I think I will make socks for my stepdad, perhaps a shawl for my mom, a sweater dress for my sister (luckily she’s very skinny, so she’ll fit into the Twinkle patterns, LOL), a hat for hubby, a hoodie for the nephew, and I have no idea what else for my cousins, the in laws and friends. Not sure if I can finish even half of these projects, but I’ll try! I have the hoodie well on its way and really all I have left to do is sew it up and man do I hate doing that! Anyone else just can’t stand finishing things? I love the knitting part but sewing is just NO fun.
I’ll finish this post with a picture of one of my last FO’s (finished objects for those non-knitters). I will probably be leaving every post with a picture as I really am photo-obsessed. 🙂
This was a tank top made from the awesome book And So To Bed. It’s supposed to be a PJ, but really, I think it’s too cute to be worn to bed! I gave it to my friend’s daughter but she also has a new baby, so I’m sure I won’t get a pic of her wearing it for a while. I really loved how it turned out and it was the first time I ever crocheted anything in my life (the border is crochet) and I found it not so hard… much easier than knitting for sure!
