Project Christmas Sweater

The fall crocuses have started to appear and that means I’ve got sweaters on the brain. Having finished up a vest in less than two weeks, I’m keeping my garment-knitting momentum up by diving directly into a sweater project. Some friends of mine knit Holiday sweaters last year and I just didn’t have the time or foresight to plan ahead. Not this year!

I’ve swatched for Colourful Winter Sports Outfit by Susan Crawford in some sport-weight yarn from my stash. The pattern calls for a fingering-weight yarn so I did a nice big swatch in my yarn and worked out the math for my size.  Due to the difference in gauge and needle size my sweater is moving along at a nice clip and I’ll definitely have it done by the holidays. Maybe I should knit two?
