I am in a mad dash to finish my sister’s cardigan by the time I leave for California next week… not too much more to do before I finish – a quarter of a sleeve, the collar, and the belt (plus seaming). I can’t wait to hand it over to her when we get to her house!
There is this little voice I hear in my head: “Lolly, it’s Socktoberfest, and you haven’t even cast on for a single pair of socks!” *sigh* Yeah. It’s true. Not even a single pair. Hopefully I won’t get kicked out of my own project!
The plate was already quite full with sweaters when Socktoberfest rolled around this year, and I just couldn’t abandon the projects on the needles in good conscience…
2009 has truly been the year of the sweater, and I am not sure I will be able to fulfill my early hopes of doing a sweater-a-month, but I got over half way there, and that seems pretty darn good in itself.
Sweaters really are my favorite items to knit, but I am looking forward to a little change of pace in 2010 – hats and shawls, perhaps?
In the meantime, I have three lovely sweaters in progress – all with (self-imposed) deadlines…
