So I started the Aran Tree Skirt from Handknit Holidays back in May so that I would have plenty of time to finish it before Christmas. Then the first section of it went so quickly I wasn’t worried about finishing it on time. I had all the time in the world! Um, yeah. Where did all of that time go?! I’m gonna have to kick it into overdrive!
Of course, it’s not very portable so I’ve been carrying another project with me wherever I go. Remember the Badcaul sock? Well, I ripped it because it looked like it may be too small. Instead of starting over with that pattern I started another. Pomatomus from Knitty. I’ve finished the first and am about 2 inches into the second one.
The Koigu KPPPM pools a bit with this pattern but I still love it. I work on these when I’m on the go but when I’m at home it’s all tree skirt all the time. Wish me luck in getting it finished! Ack!

Pretty sock and I love the tree skirt! It looks better than the one in the book! Must make this someday. Mmm…cables.Reply
