Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone had a great weekend, and a great Black Friday for those in the US. We took it easy on the weekend, just hanging out with my parents and running errands in LA. We did get a chance to see The Muppets (we're HUGE Muppets/Jim Henson fans), which we absolutely LOVED. I want to see it again!!! We also had a chance to visit Unwind, one of my favorite yarn stores, and I got three skeins of Sweet Georgia worsted weight in Ox blood colorway to make the Abalone. I can't wait to make it! The yarn has a great twist and is a gorgeous deep red.
As far as WIPW, I'm currently working on one thing, the Rebecca Danger monster, Bea, for my niece. It's a Christmas gift, so I'm trying to plow through it, marking it off my list, as I still have a few gifts to get through. I have the body knit and am working on the arms right now. I'm using Plymouth Superwash DK, and I really like the stitch definition with it, except if you catch a little area of it, it seems to snag kind of easy, due to the really pronounced stitches. Hopefully it holds up as a toy. I really like how soft and squishy it is though. I hope to have this done at some point this week, as I have another monster and two more socks to finish. Yikes! Time is ticking by.
That's it for me today. How is your holiday knitting going?
