What do you do when it’s -15 (F) outside and icy?

in Custom Knits - Tang, Wendy Bernard


You knit, of course! I made some real progress on Tang so far on my little Christmas vacation. I've gotten the body done and now need to begin the sleeves. I have to say that I was quite intimidated by this little sweater when I started, but you know what? It's fun! It really is.

I was a little afraid the arm holes were going to be a little too big for me, but when I tried it on, they didn't seem to be. I guess we'll have to see after the sleeves are knit. This really is the part I am looking forward to–the sleeves. The body was a little more exciting than I thought it would be, though.

The whole time I was knitting this sweater, I thought to myself, "Self, you could do all sorts of things with this…cable knit sweaters, laces, shells…." But I guess that was the purpose that Wendy had intended.

Well, Christmas is upon us, so BFF and I are going to visit the city for a little Christmas spirit. Hot Toddies, HUGE tree in Daley Plaza, the Walnut Room, and more all await us. Stay warm and safe while traveling!

Hi Amanda! The sweater looks great! I hope that you had a very Merry Christmas (it’s 11pm on 12/25 right now) and that the new year grants you all of your wishes! 🙂 Happy Holidays!
