That Pesky Deadline

On Thursday I had the back of the HBC sweater for Braydon done but I was contemplating ripping back and re-knitting the top part in stocking stitch.  I decided to do this.  Thank goodness this sweater is only a size 2-3 and that the yarn is DK weight as it makes for quick knitting.  All the pieces are now knitted and today I'll be blocking and sewing them together.  That will just leave the bands and collar to knit and the buttons to attach. 

However, that's not the end of my Christmas knitting.  I still have to block the Effortless cardigan for my daughter.  I have one more bread basket liner to knit and Jessica "hinted" that she'd like one of those small Christmas stockings for her tree.

I should have pictures to show you soon but, for now, I need to knit.  It's also a good chance for me to get caught up on episodes of EastEnders.  I want to get up to date as things always go crazy on Albert Square at Christmas!

You've got company, I'm frantically seaming and knitting the border on my afghan. You can do it -- keep on knitting!
