The Great Reveal, Christmas Cast-On and One Year Aniversary

Today is going to be a special picture heavy post for a couple of reasons, its Christmas so I can finally show you everything that I have been working on for the past little while, it’s the one year anniversary of my blog and I wanted to make a special post today but I also didn’t want to write too much because I want to spend time with my family. So here it is, the great reveal!

The Fellowship of the Socks (not all pictured above) have all been given to some very special friends. (A more in-depth post about this later).

I don’t thin this counts exactly as I think I’ve shown you these already but I feel like they should be part of the post because they’re Christmas related knitting. It’s a pair of Petty Harbour socks for myself that I have been saving as my first time wear handknit socks for Christmas.

Now with all that gift knitting done and given, its time to cast on something fun and for myself and since I enjoyed starting a shawl on Christmas last year so much, I decided to make the shawl Indian Feathers my Christmas Cast-On this year. I am using Grand River Sock from Agrestal Yarn for it and it is a lovely yarn that is dyed by a friend and I think I am going to enjoy knitting with it very much. The pattern also looks like it should be very enjoyable, I can’t wait to try the nupps (I’ve never done them before but I always think they look great in lace).

 

Happy knitting and I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
