The Finish Line

I am getting closer to finishing my Shetland Cardi. Just one more buttonband, one neck edge and get the sleeves on. And finally some duplicate stitching. Okay so maybe I am not finished.

I am also trying to get a pair of Chipman Check mittens done as a gift for the holidays. One is done and the other should be in a few days. I am thinking of knitting in a lining and if I decide to, which I probably will, then of course neither of them are done.

Sometimes in the past I find that I have to look for a new project but this is not one of those times. I have a million things in mind that I want to get done.

1.) Matawa Mittens
2.) Matawa inlay on mittens (see how that works)
3.) Finish my Cobweb Shetland Stole - that will take some time especially being in black
4.) Socks made doing lever knitting with some great marino wool
5. ) Need another hat for the winter for myself
6.) Gloves for my son this winter

That is just the start of the list. Finally I want to wish everyone who reads this (if any) a Happy Holiday Season, A Merry Christmas, and Happy Hanukkah, and of course a Good NEW YEAR.

Not sure if anyone reads this but if they do I wish you all the best in the coming year.

P.S. If you do read this perhaps you could let me know with a quick comment just this one time. I am a bit interested to see if anyone actually is reading this.


  1. I'm reading this stuff, not sure why as i don't knit, but the entertainment value is priceless....

  2. Hey Stuart,

    I was just stalking your project page again. You make the most beautiful things....


  3. Thanks Rebecca. You just made my day.

  4. I just discovered your blog today (through the blog "le gars qui tricote"). I love your mittens, I began to knit gloves and mittens last year, formerly I had only knit sweaters. I'll come back for sure, and I wish you a happy new year !
