One More Down
Today, I seamed and stuffed Xmas tree ornament-santa.
Pattern is from Schachenmary Nomotta Inspirations #41 that I bought from elann.com. (Please don't make me linky it--y'all know where it is!)
The yarn is odd bits of stuff, some black wool sock yarn (Lane Cervinia Calzetteria from Smiley's--don't bother, they're all out of the black--substitute any solid black sock yarn), some red cotton (Elann.com Sonata color 3611 which, remarkably, is available), and some white hair of the mo from the stash (no labels, but quite possibly Ironstone Yarns English Mohair, since there are a couple of full hanks in that bin and they look awfully similar).
And the question is: Will Sheepie make it?
There are 8 more items to complete and 11 days to finish them. One is significant (or substantial): a shawl or (fsm forbid) pancho [sic] knit. I'm pretty sure that it won't be finished in time (6 PM Friday, 8/22). I might not even start it!
The others are smaller:
*child's sweater vest skirt knit(more than half finished)
*Mr. or Mrs Snowman other (started, car knitting)
*Mr. or Mrs. Claus other (finished except for stuffing and the final seam)
*Toy-knitted (planned, not started)
*Cushions/pillows-knitted (planned, not started)
*Doilies-knitted (yegh, sure)
