Christmas In July

Not wanting a repeat of last year I started my Christmas/New Year's knitting early this year. Of the 10 people I knit for 5 are already finished. July is dedicated to finishing more. Wouldn't it be great to finish all Christmas knitting in the summer? The best part it's super secret knitting.

This is a good time to pull out the photos of last New Year's sweaters. Icelandic sweaters from The Best of Lopi knit in Encore Worsted.

The patterns call for a bulky weight yarn not worsted. I did a little math and cast on the size with the right stitch count and then knit the length to fit.

You are making the rest of us look bad. Can you at least share your theme?

Have your work hours changed? We miss you on Tuesday mornings.
