Over Christmas break, I finished two more projects to add to my total of knitting for 2009. The first is a sweater for my sister. I still need to sew the buttons on and then send it off to her in China.
The second was my teal fair isle sweater that had been neglected since the spring. I had knit to a point on the first sleeve and then couldn't decided how I wanted to finish off the sleeves. So it went away for the summer and fall. However, I knew I would have lots of time to knit over Christmas break and our travels to see family so I pulled it out to finish. After knitting both the sleeves I decided that the body was a bit too short for my liking. So I ripped out the design at the bottom and added another two inches of teal. Then I re-knit the edging design.
Both sweaters still need to be washed and blocked, but I'm glad to have completed them in 2009. That brings my adult sweater total to 6 sweaters!!
