Yup, I am still keeping up with the advent calendar scarf knit-a-long! I know, I'm shocked too. It's a little unclear to me whethe r the patterns are getting easier or if I am just knitting faster as I am getting each day's pattern done on that day. And doing so even with wrapping presents, last minute shopping trips, and finishing up handmade presents!
Here it is up to day 18, I meant to take a picture every 7 days but I started on the pattern for the 18th before I remembered, oh well, an extra day doesn't hurt! I am kind of glad I decided to do this in laceweight yarn as this sucker is already pretty long and I still have 6 more days to knit, I probably could have gone down a needle size too.
As much as I love participating in this KAL I can't help but think about life after it. I think it will be nice to not have to worry about falling behind if I miss a single day, but it will also be sad to not have something to look forward to every day along with the camraderie of all the knitters working on this around the globe (694 projects, 26 nations and all 50 US states represented). It will be nice to finally get started on my Dark & Stormy cardigan though!
