Where does the time go?

This time of year is CRAZY. I don't know where the weeks have gone, into some sort of time warp. We celebrate the big day (you know the one), my shopping is mostly done and I've decided in the midst of all the preparations that I should start a new sweater for myself in Navy. Yes, I said Navy, my favourite colour, the darker the better. I do own 2 store bought sweaters (yes Brenda, the big confession) and guess what colour they are? Do you want a hint? You guessed it.

Imagine this photo about twice as dark as it shows here, in fact almost black, yummy. I'm knitting with Cotton Tweed, Just Navy. If you go to the yarn site you'll have a much better idea of how dark the navy is. I love it.
Top Down of course, a cardigan with a collar and crew neck.
With this 2x2 garter rib down the centre back and down each side of the fronts. The ribbing pulls the collar in at the neck and works very effectively I'm happy to say. This will be nice and relaxing project (even though it's dark) over the holidays.

I hope you are planning on knitting something just for the fun of it over the holidays.
Have a Happy, Happy Holiday. See you in the new year,
Deb & Lyn

  1. I'm totally with you on dark navy. I have a thing for it too. And I even own a few store-bought sweaters (I collect ones I like to use as templates for fitting).
