I have begun my Christmas knitting. Not only that, I finished the first item.
The yarn is the sugar cane (very sweet) and the pattern is the Easy Drop Stitch Scarf. I do beg to differ with the title though, because sure, while it's simple and easy, after 20 pattern repeats, all I wanted to do was poke myself in the eye with a needle. This is the main reason I don't knit a lot of scarves. Those days are long gone. I much prefer the three hour neck warmer. It appeals to the hamster who apparently runs on that little wheel in my brain.
Anyways, one item in the Christmas basket, too many to go.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have a half completed poncho to finish knitting by Saturday.
