December has been just flying by this year. The gray, rainy and gloomy weather makes me think a different time of the year, but at least it's perfect for all the sweaters! And sweater weather is the best weather! Always.
I have two new sweater patterns ready - maybe these are perfect treats for yourself after all the gift knitting is finished. I know that my needles will be busy all the way to Christmas Eve... But the new sweaters: Meet Gemstone and Dream Big -
Cables, texture and some more texture! When the chilly mornings at the end of Autumn or early Winter come close, you start to feel it – the itch to cast on all the biggest sweaters with all the cables and all the textures. Dream Big sweater is made just for that.
This sweater is done in a very little time, because of the thick lovely yarn. Dream big and knit yourself a sweater that will keep you warm and fuzzy throughout even the coldest of winters!
