Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Celtic Cable Neckwarmer {Yarn Along}

Celtic Cable Neckwarmer {Yarn Along}

It's been almost a month since I wrote what I've been knitting for Yarn Along!! Since then, I've decided what I'm going to knit everyone for Christmas.  Two gifts are completed.  Two more are on there way to be completed.  I need to buy yarn for my FIL's gift, but other than that, all my yarn is bought.

I started knitting a Celtic cable neckwarmer over Thanksgiving.  I have not knit as far as I would have liked, but I quickly found out I need to be paying close attention to what I am doing.  It's my first time knitting using a chart, so I'm learning as I'm going along. Thankfully, I have not made any mistakes yet, and I'd like to keep it that way.  So this project will be "slow and steady."  I'm using Tahki Donegal Tweed.  I hope the recipient [I'm not going to mention who] likes it.

I'm going to start reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.  I figured if I was knitting Celtic cables, I might as well read a book by a man from Belfast. Actually, I'll take ANY excuse to read any of the Narnia books.

What are you reading and knitting?
Are you making homemade Christmas gifts?

  1. Hi Sarah! Visiting from Ginny's link-up. I love that neckwarmer pattern. I started the same one two years ago for a friend (but still have yet to finish it - yikes!). Hope yours turns out wonderfully and is well received!
