Merry Christmas to ME!

I'm sure you're JUST like me in that you knit for anyone and everyone... other than yourself.. and someone else (can't remember at this hour with only 2 sips of coffee in me)... posted a gift for themselves in their knit list... which got me to thinking... and then, while blog surfing our KALers blogs, I found this...




I am in heaven! I love fall, it's my favorite season, and I love the gradation of these colors... I want it... I want it yesterday! And so.. I shall have it...

Megan was so kind to share with me that the 2004 issue of Cast On has the pattern on page 38 and an eBay seller had the issue... so I bought it.. and it's on it's way to my inlaws already! WAHOO!!!

I'll buy the yarns after September 1st (or labor day I guess) due to my pledge to knit from stash until then, so now I really really need to get my christmas knits cranking so I have plenty of time to knit my first sweater in too many years!

Ok.. now to my crazy hectic day...

Good for you! You awesome Mommy types often forget to treat yourselves too. Can't wait to see the sweater on your needles!

Ooh VERY pretty! And It's so cool you decided on a project for yourself :) Not to mention something to look forward to after your stash knitting!
