Well, I finished two of the three sweaters and MOST of the third. I gave it to my stepmother with a picture of the pattern and an IOU, I just need to put on the big neckband, but since I altered the pattern, the neckband takes a lot of extra math so I have been avoiding it. One bag is close to finished, but it is all in stockinette, and when it is compared to the richly cabled dickinson pullover, it is REALLY boring so I have dreaded working on that too. I just hope that I can finish it by 2008.
Ooh, this was a good Christmas for knitting. I got the KnitPicks Interchangeable needle set
and some KnitPicks Shinesport yarn, which I have decided would be perfect for my stepmothers cabled Jacket that I intend to give her next christmas. I'm going to get some more shinesport in another color.
I also got some knitting books, Scottish Highland Knits, the Elegant Knitter, Men Who Knit and the Dogs Who Love Them, and some magazine subscriptions to Knitting magazine and Vogue Knitting.
I also got an iPod-touch
so that i can listen to music while I knit. This was a Really good Christmas, and everyone loved their sweaters even though my stepmother's sweater was not finished.
