Blocking Board is Getting All the Love

My blocking board has been getting tons of love lately. I haven't put it away since I brought it back to my apartment a month or so ago!

The Opera scarf is giving the board love tonight. I finished tonight at SnB and it feels good to have one more project off the list.


I think this is going to be my last Christmas knit. I was planning on making my Dad's wife a pair of socks, but it's going to take a bit of work to have them done in time. Plus she started knitting herself a little while back and has only made some novelty yarn scarves. Since she keeps saying that she would like to learn how to knit sweaters, I thought it might be nicer to buy her a beginning sweater book and offer her some lessons. I think she'd appreciate the socks, but I think buying her a book or even some more yarn will be even better. I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner.

So Christmas knitting is officially over! Now I can go back to my regularly scheduled selfish knitting!

Ooooh, that looks beautiful. Another great job, Melissa! Oh and by the way, spare your fingers and buy her the book. Also, as much as she would appreciate the socks, having you spend the time with her and give her lessons might be far more precious in her eyes.
