Another New Year

It is another New Year. 2014…what will it bring? At the moment, it brings 3 more UFO's in the form of unfinished Christmas presents. Alas.

There are Dad's Christmas Socks, which he received with the knitting needles still in them. Sadly, this is not the first time this has happened.

Dad's socks. Just started heel flap.

 Then there are the two Hardanger Christmas Stockings for my niece and nephew. The rest of the family have matching stockings ( I have completed six of them). However, the last two children born have been sadly neglected. I had high hopes of finishing them so their matching stockings could hang in the row with the other six, but it was not to be. The pattern is by Emie Bishop. From her Noel leaflet. I love this pattern. I have made her Noel bell pull at least 3 times. (Somehow, they have all been gifted to others too. I must make one for myself someday!)

One stocking cuff complete, one to go. Then, assemble stockings!

My challenge: to finish all these items by January 31st. I love a deadline!

In the meantime, I am not allowed to work on the following projects:

1. My crazy quilted colour wheel.

2. My Hardanger ornament club. There are 11 more. Such fun.

3. My red work snowman quilt.

4. Any of my other many UFO's that take my fancy.
