Making things for other people is so much fun. In fact, the only thing I ever made for myself was a scarf.
Currently I'm making a sweater for my youngest son using a pattern from the Lion Brand website. (http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/...ePullover.html
) It's made from Homespun yarn. I'm about half-way finished, and it is so soft and yummy. My son's been rubbing the finished pieces on his skin.
When I'm finished, I'm going to make another sweater from the same pattern for my oldest son. Instead of for Christmas, though, I hope to have them both finished by the time cold weather comes (November).
My husband has expressed interest in a sweater. I've actually never made anything for him, so I hope to be able to do one before Christmas. And I'd like to make him a pair of warm socks (maybe even wool).
So much knitting, so little time!
