Flying Fingers

I have been knitting so much, there are sparks at the end of my needles! I just completed a Linen Stitch scarf for the shop that took over 3 weeks to make. It's knitted in the round (400 stitches; 370 in linen stitch, 30 knit stitches), then when you're done, you cut up the knitted stitches and unravel those (secure them by tying 2 at a time in a knot), and voila! Scarf!
Then I made my secret project (Christmas gift) that I'll post a picture of after the holidays. I don't want the intended recepient to know what they are getting. I am working on the Hello Baby Cardigan and Hat for the class I'm teaching. It's fun. Quick, too! I'd be done by now if I didn't have to pace myself to match my students.
Christmas is only days away, so I need to get to work finishing up chores and decorating. Again, my New Year's resolution is to blog more. Going to work on it harder than this year. (Cross fingers here)...
Merry Christmas to you all, and a Very Happy New Year!
