Since I’m weaving in ends on dad’s sweater, that means I am pretty much DONE with my Holiday Knitting! Grand total: 1 cabled raglan sweater, 20 Christmas ornaments, 7 votives sleeves, and 1 pair of Fetching gloves. Now that I look at the total, it’s not too grand at all, but that’s A-ok! Who knows? I might decide to bust out another pair of Fetchings or something. But the important thing is that I don’t feel like I have to. I have my Christmas bases covered. However, I realized that I have nothing waiting in the wings! No projects that I’m excited about, anyway. I’ve decided that Lucy in the Sky cardigan will probably be better off as a gift, and I already have a recipient in mind…for next Christmas. And the socks, eh. That’s something I’ll continue to work on when I get bored/frustrated with a larger project.
So it’s back to the selfish kind of knitting that I find so fulfilling. 🙂 I was browsing the Phildar website last night and came across this cabled yoke sweater. (I then remembered coveting it when I first saw it in Jess’s Future Projects set on Flickr a while ago.) I was even going to go ahead and order the Phildar yarn it called for, something I hardly ever do, until I noticed that the shipping on the yarn alone would be about 30 bucks. Yikes. So some Frog Tree Alpaca in a similar color (I hope) is now on it’s way. And of course I will be omitting the superfluous bling on the yoke.
