The high today so far is 36 degrees, I think we skipped Fall and went straight into Winter. A big change from yesterday. I need to get busy and finish some sweaters for the little people, and the not so little people, in the house. Those sweaters sure were a lot quicker to knit 5 years ago. I am making pretty good progress on Ben's sweater. I have moved onto the sleeves, he is happy. I have one just like this started for little sister Lauren too. Hers is pink Lorna's Laces. I will take a picture of that later. He is anxiously waiting for me to finish this. I am getting close. The pattern is Knitting Pure and Simple and the yarn is Encore worsted. That is what I had in the stash in boy colors and he is happy with it. It is not Lorna's but it will work.
And I made a little felted bag for one of my secret pals. Her favorite colors are pink, burgundy and emerald green. Of course the eldest thinks it is hideous, but I am happy with it. I just did random stripes. It needs a shave, I was going to line it but I am still deciding on that.
And the ever dreaded stocking, I have not touched in weeks, but need to finish it. I am working on nothing but that today. DH is even asking me when I plan on finishing it. I didn't think he paid any attention to what I am knitting, but he knows it is no stocking in my hands. She, ( the angel) is much bigger than I thought. I hope to have the leg finished tonight, then it will go much faster. I just want it finished. I will stick to fair isle, someone else can do the intarsia from now on.
Happy knitting all, and stay warm
