I don't have a lot to share since I have been fairly lazy since the year turned. My house is a mess, laundry is dirty, no resolutions have been attempted, but I have been knitting on Philip's sweater. I am making him the Smokin' Jacket by Jared Flood from the Son of Stitch 'n Bitch
book. This sweater is an attempt to keep him from borrowing one of my sweaters when he goes outside to smoke.
As you can see, I have made quite a bit of progress for such a short time, but don't be deceived. I am knitting the sweater using two strands of worsted held together on size 10.5 needles so it's really hard not to make quick progress on this sweater. There is still quite a bit of knitting to be done including the saddle shoulders, the button bands and cowl neck, and the pockets. My goal is to finish by the end of January so I will be ready to start the wrap cardi KAL at the shop.
I saw something very similar to this on sale at GAP last night. Maybe I'll be brave enough to make a sweater this year.
