I got quite a lot of knitting done over Christmas. So my list of WIPs isn't too horrendous, only four projects currently on the go - two of which are blankets (one of which is a long-term project, on the go since August 2006!). I've nearly finished the Isabella jumper, this has been the background project for much of the year, in between working on things for all the babies born last year, and other presents. Isabella now has one sleeve attached, and the other sleeve is almost knitted. I like having a project like this on the go in the background, as it's easy to pick up and put down again, depending on other projects, and is also small enough (the yarn is 4ply, so it's quite a small project, despite being an adult jumper) to take on the train.
Tamara Drewe, the adaptation of Great Expectations on BBC1 and Downton Abbey. I found the 4ply quite hard going for that much knitting time, so cast on the Essential Cardigan, from Interweave Knits summer 2010 issue, as well. The yarn is Grignasco Merino Gold DK, which I bought on honeymoon, and is gorgeous to knit with. It seems to grow so much quicker after you've been working with 4ply for a while.
For the first time ever I went into work between Christmas and New Year. Only for two days, and it was quite fun, as we only had to work short days, and the trains were blissfully quiet, and I think I only received about 5 emails at work both days! One day I popped to John Lewis on Oxford St after work and found a lovely selection of yarn on sale. I bought 14 balls of Rowan Amy Butler Belle organic aran, intended for the Briar Rose tunic in Interweave Knits Winter 2011.
