Have decided and the nearly to next-last minute to do a beaded lace cowl for a cousin-in-law for Christmas. Just caught myself on the 2nd row of beading making a mistake that would have resulted in twice as many beads in the cowl (and therefore, twice as long to complete). I'm too tired to go and fix it tonight- it can wait until morning.

I am also tempted to buy the pattern and make French Press Felted Slippers for everyone on my list who does not yest have something handmade on their lists. This way lies possible craziness, but by all accounts it's a fun, fast and currently fashionable choice for gifts, so. Maybe.

In other knitterly news, I finished the Clandestine socks (just need to block them and maybe figure out how to keep them from turning my feet black.) I cast on for another sock while actually waiting in line on Tuesday, so maybe, unless I start making slippers, once the cowl is done I can finish those socks or the other socks (Sunday Swing) that I have on the go.

Also, I figured out what I want to do with the most recent silk I spun- put in a few rows in a yoke and around the cuffs of a purple cardigan. Of course, I may decide to do a wee scarf or something else- it's the most yardae of any handspun I have yet, and it's a gorgeous violet-y colour.
