Finished Floral Lace Anklets

I can't believe it but Christmas night I finally finished a the Floral Lace Anklets I'd been working on since August. I had two repeats of lace pattern left and knit them after everyone went home while watching Lifetime Christmas (sob) movies.

Everything else I'd been working on was finished in time (except Dashing) but I didn't grab any pictures. Too bad, 'cause the Tomten would've been good to get a photo of.

I wish you could see the snow falling here. It's just beautiful. The birch tree out back is shining silver and full with it and its just the prettiest thing ever.

My knitting list has been modified extensively. I haven't left out the chicken though. A Tomten has to have a chicken.

This would be the perfect time to take a week off and finish presents. My list seems to get longer. I don't normally do a lot of knitted presents because I get caught up in warped thinking (particularly halfway through) that a knitted gift might possibly be considered the most egotistical present ever. What if they don't like it? What if they hate the color? What if they feel like they have to wear it just because I made it? Will they notice a wrong facing cable cross? Will they notice and entire wrist of wrong facing cable crosses?

Anyway, I've finished little things: Two hats, two cowls, two scarves.

I have still to knit: Socks, chicken, pouch for chicken for Tomten; Fetching, Dashing, Quant and Delicato two machine knit scarfs for two Bills, and a baby blanket.

Christmas knitting over here, no pictures yet. So far I've finished: Two moebios cowls, one and a half of Yarn Harlot's Unoriginal Hats, half a beautiful chunky scarf and a Tomten who only needs socks and a bag to hold the felted rooster I haven't made yet either. I made a Just Like a Peasant Cap too but am having a hard time gathering and sewing the back down so it looks just right.
