Getting more excited about knitting

I'm planning on making a few knitted gifts for Christmas again this year so I was forced to make a plan for a few projects so I could make a large enough order from KnitPicks to get free shipping. I picked my colors from the catalog this time and ignored the pictures on the website. Hopefully I'll have better luck.

In my search for fingerless gloves patterns, I found the cutest knitting website blog and shop, Cotton & Cloud. They have patterns, kits, notions and delicious photos that will make you want to knit everything there. She also has video tutorials and the PDF instructions are super detailed with amazing illustrations and photos.

My project list may be a little too ambitious and I don't know how far I'll get but here's my plan even if I don't get all of these done by Christmas, I know I'll want to make them eventually.

I've been making good progress on the "George" cardigan despite having to unravel and almost start all over the first sleeve due to size alterations gone awry, so I'm hopeful my momentum will stick.

  1. Just wanted to let you know that I just found my way to your blog and I love it. I have worked my way back to this post but now I must go knit because I am so inspired. I pinned a lot of your posts too. Now I have many more projects that I want to make.
