The Christmas season is quickly approaching and I think this maybe the most behind I have ever been since my first Christmas of Christmas knitting. It just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day. There are a lot of things to blame for me being behind in Christmas knitting and for the most part it is all my fault. First thing is school work, I have a lot of it and well I the past few weeks I haven’t felt like working on it so it has been taking me forever to get it done (I just recently started having more of a desire to get my homework done early). Secondly I have been biting off more than I should, I have been volunteering to test knit like crazy. I still have two test knits on the needles which due dates are surprise surprise, in December or January for them. And thirdly I still have so much stuff that I want to make myself that I only want to be selfish.
On the plus side I have my two biggest projects for Christmas knitting almost out of the way, as I mentioned over the summer I made a sweater for my niece and now I am finishing up my nephews sweater. I am knitting him the flax in a bright blue color, I am about halfway done with the body of it and coincidentally it is great textbook reading knitting.
So now that all of that mess is out of the way I have a pretty great announcement.
So here is my project page.
yarn: Cascade 220
colorway: walnut heather
I love the yarn and the color of it! The sweater is great too! It is just so comfy and warm. I had been really wanting to make it for a while and I so glad that I finally did! The only thing that I wish I would have done differently would be to go down a size or two on the neck to make it stand up better.
Oh yeah and now my niece and I can be twinsies when I give her her Christmas gift! Yay! But don’t worry in case you don’t remember my niece is getting one in pink.
