The absolutely last pre-holiday round-up

December seems to be kicking us all in parts of the anatamony we didn;t even know we had. I se a bunch of half-done Cinxias in the corner there, under the tree, and another bunch in the corner over there, next to the menorah. Thank the stars above, in Israel Chanukah just isn't that big a deal, so all my WiPs are for me. I am chugging away; less than a 1/4 inch to go before the decreases. I may actually finish this up in time for my next round of conventions in March.

Chloe has put aside her Cinxia for a while, still longing for the perfect dpns. The whooshing sound you hear was her self-imposed Christmas deadline passing by--maybe Valentine's Day instead?

Katie's is on hold, too, until holiday knitting is done and vacation commences.

Now Chelle, she's my hero--she's only got the collar to go. Gettin' ready to cross that finish line...

Happy holidays, whatever you may or may not celebrate, and here's to cleaning your knitting off its needles!

Pre-holiday roundup

Sorry about not posting last week - work got a little crazy with everyone trying to finish projects before the end of term (I am at a university). Here's where our collective Cinxia knitters are:

Moze is recovering from being seriously overworked but has still managed to attach the sleeves and get about an inch into the yoke.

Chelle is on her decrease rows before the collar, but has some holiday knitting to finish first - check out the adorable jumper!

Chloe really wants to start her sleeves but is also conflicted by fair isle mittens and the new Knitty. Add the new Interweave Knits to that and it's pretty much where I am at too, except that I'm on the second sleeve.

Jeanne fnished and blocked her Cinxia, but has decided that it would wear better with a little more ease, so it's going back on the needles. Any photos, Jeanne?

Blogless (?) Cynthia and Deb ask whether anyone has tried different stitch patterns for their Cinxias...Sheila is using a seed stitch edging and regular stockinette for the body (bet that goes faster). Sheila, let us all know if that changes the hang of the garment.

I really want to finish mine by January; after I prepare for the Hanukkah/Xmas party we're hosting Sunday, I'm hoping it'll be all knitting all the time for me. Famous last words...
