1. An afghan for Jim's parents
2. A sweater for the dog
3. 3 scarfs for Jim
This brilliant idea came the very last week of November as exams were approaching. Although I didn't complete everything I had set out to do, I have to say I was a knitting machine this past month and still got all As on my exam! Here were the projects that I was able to complete:
For Jim, I made him a stripe scarf and a matching Koolhaas hat using Cascade wool:
I also managed to perform a Christmas miracle by completing the Anastasia blanket for his parents. Let me tell you, this was quite a struggle! When I was making the centre, it was all lopsided and flared out like a skirt. I decided to block my blanket (my first time blocking anything) and it definitely saved the day!
I didn't have time to knit Jewel a sweater, but she did receive this one from me after she got a haircut at the end of November.

Note to self: Next year start your Christmas knitting earlier (i.e. September) or just buy everyone (and yourself) a big bottle of rum!
