Oh, no, she’s talking about knitting (snore)

So, this isn’t really a knitting blog, but I feel a lot of pent up posts coming on and none of them are particularly cheery. And I was thinking that while I’ve been moping and stewing and worrying these past couple of months, I’ve also been knitting. A lot. For Christmas mostly but here’s a sweater I made for Jamie this fall.
My first sweater

I actually started it in August but knitted it off and on for awhile in between other things. The sleeves are too long because I misunderstood the directions a bit, but otherwise it’s a good fit. Roomy enough that he should be able to wear it next year. Which is a good thing because he’s only worn it this one time. I said something about it the other day and he rolled his eyes and sighed and said, “But I already WEARED that one.” Argh.

However, he loves his handknit socks and I’ll be making more of these soon. Just as soon as I crank out a pair for his dad’s enormous size 11 feet. Thank heavens MD prefers to wear ankle socks!
