Just checking in on how your Giftalong presents pile is shaping up. Actually (you probably know this), this is a thinly disguised pretext to show off my own bodacious pile of handknit goodness. Wa-la:
Note: this is after my mom liberated a whole Breton Cowl, and it’s still a pretty good buffet of assorted warmers and coverings.

Dangling Conversation (shawl/wrap)
From top to bottom, on the right:
I have three more presents on the needles: another Breton Cowl, a Honey Cowl (recipient: me, unless my mom gets into the presents closet again), and a Sequences Shawl. I’d also like to whip up a few Squad Mitts.
I *think* I’m going to get all these items done by December 24 (Christmas Eve AND first night of Hanukkah). I certainly do not want to hear any talk to the contrary. I think I can, I think I can!
I just started a new topic over in The Lounge in the hope that people will share photos of their Piles of Presents there, for the inspiration of all. I’m also thinking maybe we should have a Wrap Party where we all festoon our knits with tags and tissue paper and feel extra-good about ourselves. Let’s figure out how to make that happen.
Breaking News of A Gilmore Nature
Confession: I have not watched a single episode of Gilmore Girls. Ever. I do not have anything to say for myself. What am I doing with my life? But I am not living under a rock. Gosh! I know there is a new series of Gilmore Girls, and that people on the Twitter are very excited about it.
Apparently, there is some very nice knitwear in the show, that is very obviously handknitted.
Reader Nina of NYC wrote in on our Contact Us page to see if we could get her an answer: WHAT ARE THE PATTERNS? We batted the question over to Nell, who had the correct answer in a hot minute, complete with Ravelry links. Here you go:
Either of these lovely accessories could easily be added to one’s Giftalong pile, just saying.
What Would the Gilmore Girls Knit?
