FO Friday: Sweater!

You didn’t really think I had a person-sized sweater to show off, did you? No, the only sweaters I’m making progress on are wine bottle sweaters. Look at this super-cute baseball version:

I’ve also got another red one finished and a green one on the needles. I decided the mother and one of the SILs each need one. Why I couldn’t decide this a month ago, I have no idea, but there you have it. This is the Christmas tradition: declare I’m not making a lot of Christmas gifts, then decide at the last minute that I want to make Christmas gifts for so many people. And that, friends, is why we all declare January selfish-knitting month!

Hope you all are having a happy holiday season so far!

    • LOL I may be a little fast on small things, but not adult sweater-sized things. I have a sweater I started the first of September that’s maybe got six inches of body and that’s it!

  1. Puppers! Super cute! 😀

    And yeah. I do that thing with the “I’m not knitting gifts” and then “oh wait, I want to knit ALL THE GIFTS”. I keep saying I’m going to get better at planning, but all that means is that I knit gifts year-round and STILL end up deciding to make more last-minute.

  2. That is adorable. I love the buttons, and I think I need to make a Cubbies version. I decided today I should make Audrey a sweater for Christmas this year. I don’t think it will happen, but I’m going to try.

  3. These are a great idea! Glad to see you’re keeping up the fine makers’ tradition of promising to make all our presents early and only starting them a week before the 25th. Why do we do this to ourselves?? 😀
