Ah December! Now it is time to be excited about Christmas (November is not appropriate for festive excitement no matter how much the shops say so). Now I am excited about Christmas! Yes, the shopping is done – one evening with some hot toddy and an internet connection is all a girl needs. I am excited for food and presents and going home to the family for the holidays. We will eat mountains of roasted things and play wholesome family games that involve 5 minutes of shouting until somebody wins. For three days it will be acceptable to eat chocolate for breakfast. I will probably tread on pine needles whilst barefoot. Hooray! Christmas!
Last week I finished the body of my Jocosa jumper. It’s looking very winter-appropriate.
I am absolutely making it my goal to have the sleeves done by the 23rd, so I will have an official Christmas Jumper. The ribbing at the bottom was also a good chance for me to practice the tubular bind-off as detailed here. A perfect match for one of my favourite cast-ons!
In other news I have been updating the British Yarn Guide at a steady rate. It’s getting to be a mighty long list. I didn’t realise how many awesome yarns were out there when I made the initial post! Made your Christmas wishlist yet? Perhaps the list will give you some ideas for it!
