While I wait, I've decided to work on some of my personal projects. Things are pretty slow in etsy-land, so I figured it'd be a good thing to take advantage of. I really want to crank out at least two sweaters before it gets cool, and have about six Chrismukkah stockings that I'd like to finish.
Knitting really causes a special kind of seasonal madness. In June, the pressure starts to get warm woolies ready for The Season, so orders of wool, alpaca, etc. start arriving. Thick sweaters, thrummed mittens, and warm slippers start production in the heat of the summer. If you're not planning or already working by July, a little bit of a panic starts setting in. By the end of August, you'd better have a nice bit of product stocked up, or the pinch is really on.
And I'm a willing participant. Below is the first repeat of the cabled cuff for a lovely, classic stocking. I plan on making six of these, and I'm getting a head start!
