totally not christmasy

I still can’t show you all the Christmas stuff I made, some because I haven’t given it out yet and some because I don’t have a good picture. I made my boys PJ pants (we traditionally give them PJs on Christmas eve) and they are wearing them to bed but I didn’t get a good shot before they went. I’ll try in the morning.

To tide you over, here is a video I made three years showing you how to knit backwards: the piece moves from the left needle to the right needle instead of right to left. I use this a lot for small sections of short row stockinette or for heels on socks. Someone at knitting was talking about taking a backwards knitting class at Stitches (Teenuh, I think?) and I said I could teach her instead which reminded me repost this video.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
