If you are a follower of my personal blog, you might be familiar with the story of the Christmas Sweater. Before D's first Christmas I purchased some lovely Cephalopod Yarns Traveller in the color Arkham that was intended to be something really special for D. I eventually decided to start a new tradition, a brand new knitted sweater for Christmas. FOREVER (as I told my husband).
We are now going on D's 4th Christmas (how did that happen?). Today was our annual family photo session and the last couple of years I have liked to have the Christmas Sweater completed by this date in order to use in our holiday cards. Of course, I normally start the knitting prior to a week before this date. That's right. I started this sweater last weekend.
And this was as far as I've gotten. I still have another sleeve and the yoke (not to mention finishing and blocking) to complete. I was tempted to cancel photos today but honestly, you don't get many 65 degrees and sunny days in Ohio in November. So there will of course have to be an extra photo shoot when it's all complete.
For now, I'm just enjoying the knitting on this sweater. I'm using YOTH Yarns Big Sister in the color Cacao. I love the feel of this yarn and can't really complain about any extra knitting time.
