So yesterday I finished my Dad’s Christmas present.
A little late. I ran out of yarn when I was back home so I couldn’t give it to him then. Then I could find anymore of the same yarn in Virginia. By the time I got back here, I was just unmotivated.
I finally finished it, and I think it is fairly
pretty manly. It’s a reversible cable (aka ribbed) with seed stitching on either side, knit with 2.5 skeins of Lion Brand yarn. I wish it was a bit longer, but I ran out of yarn (the last half a skein was bummed off someone. I could never find anymore of it).
It’s not really winter at all back in Virginia where my parents live. And he’s going to Haiti in a week, so I doubt he’ll get any use out of it this winter. He could definitely use it here, since we got a fresh layer of snow today.
In my knitting bag, two mittens await their finish, and probably won’t see any use this winter either. I realized why I’ve been so unmotivated with my knitting this year. ‘Cause this year I’m cuddling on the couch with my husband, making it more difficult to knit. Maybe next year we’ll be sick of each other and I can start to get stuff done!
