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:
That’s a gift for a very good friend who’s a huge Kansas City Royals fan, and I’ve got more of those buttons so I’ll probably make more. Maybe I can sell a few next year! 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!
You’re so fast, I actually did expect a person-sized one! The bottle jumper is impressive enough and I looooove those buttons.
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!
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.
Okay, then I won’t try that plan next year! LOL
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.
Wow, you’re…ambitious! At least she’s small!
I believe you mean crazy, not ambitious.
I do, but I was trying to be polite.
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?? 😀
