I've been working away at Julian's Christmas sweater. I decided to go ahead and use the cables from A cardigan for Arwen from the latest Interweave Knits mag because I couldn't find another reversible cable anywhere else and I quite like the effect of the reversible cable on the hood which I have yet to knit...just as soon as I figure out how ;0)
I had a brilliant idea this morning! Since the body's done and seamed up, I thought I'd try to put it on my little elf to see if the fit was right. Though as you'll remember, my toddler is blurry so it was quite the photo shoot. It was early morning and in my own groggy state I thought it was completely reasonable to let him hold the ball of yarn still attached to the hood to get him distracted enough that he would sit "still" for a photo. It kinda worked. Though not quite as planned. All I could do was to watch in terror as he discovered the pleasure of totally spaghettifying the ball of yarn still attached to the hood-to-be...
Horrors! Well at least now I know the cardi fits! As for the ball of yarn, well, that'll be a fun activity for me to do this morning. A nice break from the knitting I reckon. Though hopefully I'll be back to knitting the hood full force this afternoon. I really want to finish up the hood tonight so that I can take it shopping for buttons tomorrow.
Then it's on to knit up Joseph and the 19 other ornaments I had planned to knit up before Christmas. Yup. I'm seriously deluded...again ;0)
