Thank you to everyone who commented on my FOs yesterday – your feedback really means a lot to me!
I’m glad that Christmas is almost here – soon the rush will be over! We’re going to my in-laws for two days after Christmas (then I have to go back to work, though Marc is off until Jan 5th.) I’m trying to decide on my next projects. I did start a new sock, something that is easy to work after the cozy cable socks!
This is the “Gentleman’s Fancy socks” pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks. The yarn is Colinette Jitterbug in Velvet Damson, which I got as a present last Christmas – I thought it was time to use it up! I actually started several patterns, but this yarn is such a dark blue that nothing really showed well. I especially loved the pattern for “Child’s French Sock,” also from the same book, but I want to make it in a lighter color (green, I think.) Anyway, these will be really pretty when they are done, which shouldn’t take long because the pattern is so terribly easy.
My next sweater is a harder choice. I have three patterns I’m thinking of, with yarn for each… I’m soliciting opinions, so vote for your favorite!
Blooming Cardigan from Interweave Winter 08. I’m going to make it without the belt, and in a more fitted size.
Wisteria in Araucania Nature Wool. I’m knitting to a smaller gauge to get a smaller size than the 37″ bust small, and I’m nervous about that…
Amelia from Knitty Winter 08 in Madelinetosh worsted.
So… which one should I make now?
