Knitting for Others

by ,

I have been really itching to knit a sweater for myself. I just don’t really see the point. There are holiday knits to be completed and cute baby bookish knits to be made. I am so huge at this point it’s hard to imagine a time when I would be able to fit into a knit sweater for myself. I am also REALLY. HOT. all the time. I swear, this is like nothing I have ever experienced. I am normally a cold natured person so this is especially interesting for me. Wool sweaters are not my friends right now.

Sure, I have Smarty to fit and cloth. But some days I just miss my old body and watching her stand there all smug in one of my sweaters just isn’t fun. Exactly how a headless dummy exudes smugness is beyond me – but she does!

To celebrate those thing that are beautiful and never seen here:

A shawl/scarf that I made for my Mom, Yarn picked out by her ages ago. It’s Cherry Tree Hill Baby Loop Mohair in Winterberry. The pattern was a free pattern that came with the yarn (purchased at New York Knits, a LYS near my parent’s house). It’s a really simple knit that went fast. I purchased a scarf pin at New Hampshire Sheep and Wool and sent it off to my Mom as a birthday/mother’s day/christmas/oh-what-ever present. (Have you ever sent these. The gifts that really have no occasion, yet fulfill every occasion?!)
