Okay... someone really needs to make a sarcasm font. As the title suggests, were it in sarcasm font, I'm about to show you the most boring knits ever.
First up, Dad's sweater!
I debated on starting the sleeves right away, or taking a break and moving on to something more exciting for a little bit. I really want to get the sweater done, but while I'm knitting it, the Christmas list isn't getting much shorter - and there are a few small projects I could whip up in no time (that's knitter hubris right there...)
In the end, I opted to start something new, but it's not very exciting.
Yup.. purple stockknit... This will be a Brain Monster hat for my youngest niece. I'm using our Fat Cat in "Empress" and the yarn is probably the only thing keeping me from going buggy. It's a lovely deep purple with undertones of red and blue, and so, so soft, like Fat Cat always is.
And don't worry about Dad's sweater in the mean time. It's not going to get lonely.
"Yep. I've got it covered," says Tux.... I hope Dad doesn't mind cat hair....
Oh - and there's some new yarns in the shop - some stripeys and a few heavier weights to keep you toasty!
