Clockwise from top left: my little miss, wearing red and riding on a red quad bike, a stack of red books from our home library, lovely poinsettias, and red bell peppers.
As you can tell, My new WIP is red. Classic, lovely, amazing red. How do I not yet own a red sweater? This seems like a massive wardrobe oversight.
And here is my WIP, the lovely, classic Oatmeal Pullover in progress:
I love that it's bulky (knitting in Cascade Eco Wool, which is a lovely bulky weight yarn and knits up rather quickly on 6mm (US 10) needles. This is what I cast on when I decided one of my 5 goals for winter would be to knit a cozy sweater, and this will be wonderfully cozy- I've been trying it on as I go, and I get more excited about it each time I do! But let's not overlook that super awesome project bag, a wonderful birthday gift from my thoughtful in-laws all the way from England. It's a durable canvas, and a nice size for a big bulky sweater! I love it- it's simple, it's durable, and I completely agree with the quote.
