Stitching Status: I Lied

First, let me say you guys rock and I love all your loving and sweet comments on my holiday post (and every post really). I’ve gotten a lot of positivity about my pic and my husband has gotten teased a bit at work but hey, we love it. But now I have to make a confession…I lied to you guys. I said I thought my husband’s sweater would be my last of the year.

It’s not. I was going to work on some hats as thank you gifts and my Dotted Rays shawl and I just didn’t want to pick up a small needle after working on his sweater.

So I picked up my size 17 needles and some super bulky yarn from my stash instead. I’m almost finished with the Superbulky Grandpa by Joji Locatelli.

I don’t normally like super bulky yarn or really chunky knits. I’m not a think woman, I’m a bit on the short and curvy side so I prefer things that are fitting and show my shape. I don’t want to add bulky BUT despite being super sized, this cardigan has a nice shape to it and it has interesting construction. Which was perfect after what felt like miles of stockinette stitch. So I’m sorry I lie and said I was done with sweaters for the year. This was has been a fun one to work on and I’ll hopefully get to share the finished project next week!

  1. Chiming in to say that I SO look forward to all your posts. You are community for me. I love to hear about what you’re up to, and I love dogs so more please when it comes to posts about your pups and knitting. Here’s wishing you and yours a very merry holiday season with lots of knitting and family time. I am a big fan! PS….where did that cute project bag come from with all the huge knit stitches?

  2. I like that squishy bulky! Hmmm…I have this bulky yarn from Knit Picks and it’s acrylic I think and the color is that of a squirrel. I really need to use it up.
