Well at least in the department of knitting. I’m still working on the red lace cardigan I started ages ago. I’m a few inches from the armholes. My biggest pet peeve about sweater patterns is how they tend to be too short so when I make my own pattern I always add an inch or two to the length. My cardigan is going to be 17 inches from the underarm to the hip not the usual 13 inches that I see so often. I’m not long waisted I just hate things sitting at the most unflattering area of my body, my stomach.

I hope to have some images once I start the armholes. I really want to get creating patterns again. Plus I need to think about Christmas gifts for people this year. Any suggestions on quick, nice Christmas gifts?
