This week has, for various reasons which shall for now remain unspoken, been a rather stressful and hectic one. The ultimate effect of that on my usual blog topics has been a near-disastrous lack of progress on anything at all. I missed WIP Wednesday and the Yarn Along, even though I have started reading a rather exciting new book and wanted to share.
I do have finished objects to show off, however they are all gifts which have not yet been given, so for now, the ta-da looks like this:
I now have two projects sitting on the naughty step - I still haven't fixed the snapped yarn in Forest Lace, and I discovered a mistake in my Hypernova that requires frogging back a few rows. I need to be more chilled out to tackle those problems!

I have made some progress on the Poncho; my tally of circles now stands at 34 and reaching my target of 120 doesn't seem quite so daunting now.
What I really need to get done is my gloves, otherwise I won't get them finished in time for the 18th November. They don't look much different to last weekend, though.
Unfortunately, I made a purchase today which is going to distract me from knitting my gloves this weekend. You recall my musings on creating my own advent calendar this year? Well, I was out scouring shops for my swap package and found these:
They were only a pound! Bargain. Now I need to decide how to arrange them and what to hang from them!
