It’s Christmas Eve, and I’m sick.
Yep. At least it’s not a repeat of the horrible stomach flu which has stricken so many of my friends in recent weeks (I had it a while back already). No, this time it’s the less-violent but much more prolonged sore throat and runny nose.
But I’m not too sick to knit!
All knit gifts are away (or at least done, there’s one that’s not away yet) and I’m back to working on the Treeline Stripe cardigan. I knit and knit and watched many, many episodes of Bones…
et voila! On the blocking towels.
Maybe I’ll just leave the buttons off for now – I really wanted to wear this sweater for Christmas day, and I managed to make it happen! I did run out of Kidsilk Haze on the second buttonband, but meh. You can’t really tell, since the whole sweater is pretty darn fuzzy.
I’m hoping I got enough out of the blocking to make it fit better – it was a little on the too-snug side in the body when i tried it on earlier. But by the measurements, it should fit now. Full wrap-up and FO photos tomorrow!
Merry Christmas, or Tuesday!
