I wasn't sure I'd get the opportunity this year so I was quite excited to start my #ChristmasEveCastOn project.
And yes, I'm well aware I should have been sweeping rather than knitting but I'm a knitter. I have priorities.
It's quite amazing how quickly a bulky sweater grows! I'm knitting a Felix Pullover. I may regret not knitting the cardigan version but hey - it's knitting up so quickly, I can easily sneak a cardigan into the knitting schedule. I'm using Wool of the Andes Bulky. It's a first for me. I generally don't knit with bulky yarns because they make my carpal tunnel flare up but so far, so good. The knitting is going so quickly, I think I'll finish the sweater before the carpal tunnel issues have a chance to kick in. Knock on wood!
Besides how fast it's knitting up, I'm also surprised how much softer/less itchy the bulky yarn seems to be compared to the regular worsted. The worsted doesn't usually bother me, but I can already tell that this bulky feels different.
So, what are you knitting now that the Christmas gift knitting season is over? I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing about everyone's projects.
