I'm a sappy folk who likes Valentine's Day. It's been pretty cute here between yellow roses, yummy chocolates, and cuddly bunnies!
Therefore, I thought I would finally take some time to tell you what's on my needles. I have a lot of projects in progress, so I'll tell you about my big one for the moment:
Alicia's Vintage Treeline
Two years ago, I promised my cousin and my aunt each a sweater for Christmas. I have two mostly-finished sweaters lying around. Since I used some squeaky Lion Brand yarn (for wash-ability and cost-effectiveness), I'm not a fan of them. They have been languishing under the couch for a long time. My local yarn shop recently received some Berroco Vintage that I could not pass up. I got it into my head to make my cousin a sweater not unlike one I made for the Ravelympics last year. It's a modified Treeline Striped Cardigan. I love mine, so I'm sure she'll love hers! I picked some really amazing colors for her. How am I ever going to give it up?! Is it wrong that I want her not to like it so I can have it? :) It's okay, though. I bought a couple other great colors of Vintage that I'll keep for my self.
You'll be seeing those sweaters soon enough! And this one too. VERY soon, I suspect.
Hopefully I'll be finishing up a few projects to share with you soon. I finished two sweaters in the week before we started the blog and I am refraining from starting anything new until this sweater and a very large double-knit commission are done. It's so hard to wait with piles of beautiful yarn scattered about the couch, just waiting to be cast on! I'm a quick knitter, though, so you won't have to wait long to see all the goodies I have planned.
