Been knitting like a fiend to finish my cardigan and to make Xmas gifts. I tell myself that it’s because I carpet-bombed my extended family with crocheted gifts last year, and amateurish products at that. I blush to think of the gray and purple bobble headed cap I gave my MIL.

Because I knit rather slowly, I’ve had to cut a few corners. So far I’ve finished three neckwarmers (here’s a dirty secret: they take way less time than scarves. And even less if you use fat yarn!). And one fingerless glove.

So I’m feeling guilty towards crochet right now. In my defense, there’s the crocheted felted bag I’m making for my best friend… but many other crochet projects are languishing.

Running around town with my cardi (worn with a clasp because I haven’t had time to shop for buttons), I’ve gotten a lot of compliements. Here’s the thing: I am now known as “a knitter” at my office. Gasp! Have I sold out?



A peek at the neckwarmers being blocked, waiting for buttons. Pattern from Yarn Abuse. Happy to say that both were made with stash yarn–Malabrigo worsted merino, double-stranded.
