Hey, guess what? I actually knit stuff! Here's the current status of the projects that are on the needles:
Shifting Sands/Winter Sky scarf (pseudo-artsy photo; it's about 3/4 done):
Glovely (1 down, 2nd one on the needles):
The Gansey Gloves (11th hour gloves) are a Christmas gift for Dad that will hopefully actually be done by Christmas. I think I'm going to leave the fingertips open so he can wear them while working. I'm using a worsted weight yarn, but size 2 needles (as specified in the pattern), so they're working up pretty quickly, but they're not all that comfortable to knit.
I also FINALLY managed to get this baby pinned out:
If it's dry by Christmas Eve, then we're in business.
