Way back in July, I decided that since I had been knitting for two years I was morally obligated to make everyone I love a knitted gift for Christmas. Poor, strange logic, I know, but that was what my brain concluded. When I step back and think about the project, I sort of feel like I’ve dropped myself off of a giant cliff no yarn at the bottom to cushion my fall. Dramatic much? But really, piece by piece, it’s starting to come together. I’ve gone from this:

To this (this this being a screenshot of a portion of my master knitting spreadsheet. Yes, I have a master knitting spreadsheet (I think I stole this genius idea from Rachelle) and it is awesome. Naturally, the only project that’s currently high priority is one that I haven’t started and will probably procrastinate on until the very last second and I’ll have to pull yet another (yes, another) knitting all nighter. I am the worst procrastinator at the silliest things):
But hey! I’m 50% done! One of the remaining projects that I’m simultaneously excited and terrified for is this sweater, from Bruce Weinstein’s Boyfriend Sweaters book. I’m knitting it for David, so it might just look a teensy different on him than it does on the model. Maybe.
