Holiday Knitting

Christmas is a time to share with family and friends and hopefully some time to settle down and relax with needles in hand. With shopping finished, gift wrapping complete, baking and cooking boxed or ready for the oven, that's exactly where I am now and savouring every minute of it.

I started another one of these, but this time I chose to knit it using a bulky Noro - Kogarashi.
At this rate of speed and thanks to #10 needles, I should have the project complete during the Christmas Holiday. A bulky long Eternity Scarf will be fabulous worn over a leather or wool jacket this winter and I'm so pleased with the softness of this Noro fiber, it doesn't feel scratchy at all. I purchased 3 skeins of the Kogarashi and will use the 3rd skein for a pair of matching fingerless gloves. Ahhhhh, a suite!

So, if like me you are ready for Santa, slow down and pick up a quick knit to enjoy with a cup of hot tea or eggnog.

Happy Holiday!
