It has been a foggy week most of this week and today is no exception. I can barely see the top of the hill outside my door. A good day to stay inside and knit? or quilt? or decorate the Christmas tree?
I actually did take the tree out of the box last night. It’s definitely skinny – hopefully still enough tree to hold my many ornaments. I haven’t done the “fluffing” of the branches yet but I do like the fact that it will fit about anywhere.
As for knitting today – I’ll save that for later tho I did finally finish off the fronts of my CustomFit Featherweight Cardigan. So just finished winding another cake of yarn so I can start on the sleeves. I’m a little concerned that I’ll be really close on yarn since it has a wide edging on the sweater fronts (I made some changes to the pattern after I started which used more yarn) so I may have to order another hank just to be sure since I know its in stock and hope Cascade colors don’t vary much from batch to batch.
Quilting – that’s what I hope to get started on first (since I’m ignoring the cleaning in the living room that should occur). Need to cut some borders and get them on the wedding quilt.
And speaking of the wedding quilt, the pattern I used (tho I didn’t add the applique to mine – shocker, I know, but I liked the fabrics just as they were) is now available for download at hoffmanfabrics.com. It’s called Kotori Fans.
This morning I’m really wishing there was a restaurant nearby that delivered breakfast! But guess I’ll have to wander into the kitchen and find something myself. I’m thinking perhaps as a tasty treat some cinnamon raisin biscuits.
Then I can ponder my dilemma — I’m trying to decide what sweater I want to start once my Featherweight is done (yep planning ahead). It will be a CustomFit version of whatever sweater I make and incorporate the lacy or other stitch pattern used in the original sweater.
I’m thinking about Oceanna Cardigan
or Cinnamon (which I love in that cinnamon color)
okay – after mentioning Cinnamon several times I really do need raisin cinnamon biscuits – off to the kitchen! 🙂
