This sweater may seem ambitious but I am in need of something beautiful and just for me on the needles right now. I have been knitting Christmas presents. Lookie:

Thrums for my MAMA. She needs something warm and comfy and special just for her, too. She lost the love of her life recently and this is the least I can do to cheer her up. I hate that I live so far away so I can't be with her right now, but I will never move to Ontario.

Even if it's filled with more yarn stores than you can shake a stick at!



These started out as socks for me (don't you love that goofed up centre cable?) but naturally I forgot to allow for how much smaller the cables make a sock and so these will be for my first born. I will knit this pattern again with adjustments to adult sizing, and if I manage it without mistakes, I may publish it for your enjoyment. I love this yarn. It's Trekking (XXL), colour #100.

This is a wool and mohair (one strand of each) triangle shawl for my youngest, with little crystal beads sewn on around 2 edges. I still have some ends to sew in and I am contemplating putting a pom-pom at the bottom point, just for the cute.
