The line was crossed on December 20....just in time to welcome winter. A first for me. A sweater knit with my very own hands. A Tiny Tea Leaves cardigan for my littlest girl who still lets me make clothes for her. I bought some Manos del Uruguay silk and wool blend last February and pretty much started the project right away. I opted for shorter sleeves to allow for springtime layering. I realized that I love knitting....that I can indeed make a sweater and also that it drives me nuts having bigger projects sitting around taking a long time to get themselves done. Proving to myself what I already knew....that I am more of an immediate gratification kind of gal.
That said, I have some new wool on order for another solstice sweater....for me this time....on bigger needles.
