Hold the presses!

If you read yesterday’s, post, you know that I’ve been in a bit of a quandary, project-wise:  do I continue knitting Christmas socks, or do I reward myself with a quick project in between?

Ladies and gentlemen, a decision has been made.

And as often happens with me, the solution presented itself like a bolt from the blue, as if the Force was nudging me towards the proper path.

During my morning commute I was listening to an episode of Cast On, where Brenda waxed rhapsodic about a cardigan pattern that takes only about 400 yards of worsted.

That is not a typo.  400 yards.  worsted weight.  I have about 18 different yarns in my stash that fit the bill.  Right this minute.

So I scribbled myself a note on the back of a receipt, and once I got settled at work I checked it out.  It’s  Liesl.

Too cute, right?  I’ve heard about this sweater on several other podcasts, but for whatever reason I guess I’ve never looked at the darn thing.

Do I even need to tell you that I’ve already bought the pattern?

Yup, and I turned the heel and worked the gussets on the current pair of socks last night, and will probably finish those up tonight.

Several of the 1000+ projects on Ravelry say the sweater takes only a few days to complete, so I’ll be back on Christmas socks before you know it, renewed, refreshed, and ready for the home stretch.

Now all I have to do is decide which yarn to use…
