Except I can't because CHRISTMAS KNITTING OMG. And I'm stuck in camp with only this project (and another, but I refuse to start anything until this blanket is done or else it'll never get done).
What's keeping me going is, well, rushed Christmas knitting, but also that I've promised myself that I can start up two new sweater projects (at once!) after I'm done gift knitting, and I've been stoked to start both of them for a while.
OMG I want this sweater, it looks so cozy and so me!
The yarn is an impulse buy from our LYS, Malabrigio Silkpaca in olive. I don't know why the green, it just called to me and wouldn't let me leave unless it was in my purse, so there you have it. I love Michelle's version with her lovely stripes*, but I think I'd wear this more as a solid.
I think these will be good to knit together. One is more complicated and involved, with all of those textures and cables, while the other will be pretty mindless knitting. I'm want Christmas to be here now so I can get started on these already, geez. Christmas gift for me!
How about you all? Have you chained yourselves to gift making and getting sick of it, like me? Have you ever set a reward for yourself for completing a tediously long project?
*If you haven't noticed yet, Michelle is sort of my knitting idol. She makes some gorgeous knits and I sort of want to copy nearly everything she makes. :)
