27 December 2007


Christmas was good. Owen got a big red barn and has barely moved from it since.

David, of course, got a handknit aran sweater.

Yarn: Times Remembered Inverness 50/50, purchased at Rhinebeck in 2006
Pattern: My own. I selected the cable patterns from The Harmony Guide to Aran and Fair Isle Knitting and I followed Elizabeth Zimmermann's EPS system.
Needles: US 4 & 6
Very handsome, huh? I'm just so happy it fits. I did have to make one post-gifting fix, which was to make the neck a bit longer. Luckily I had those tiny bits of yarn left.

I did finish the second stocking on Christmas Eve as well. Same yarn and pattern as the other one.

And here is my loot: beautiful lace yarn purchased by my mom at Rhinebeck from the Briar Rose tent. I'm very excited to knit with this. I just have to find the perfect shawl pattern for my first foray into lace knitting.
