Yes, that was me bragging at knitting camp on the weekend about only knitting cardigans and jumpers for the immediate family members.
I then went on to say my queue was my own and I could fill it with fun and frivolous projects for me. I said that dh only wanted one plain jumper in rib in 5 ply (completed a few years back) and never wanted another one. Thus I was able to knit cardigans and jumpers for myself to my hearts content. I have spent the months leading up to winter queueing socks and shawls as well as cardigans and jumpers...thinking I can easily add to my wardrobe this winter have some fun with knitting for me.
Can you see where this is headed dear friends? Is it clear I was setting myself up for a surprise at least if not a fall.
So this morning dh stands in the bedroom and says I need another jumper. Right now! Obviously this is not achievable, but it will be an act of love. With his sensitivities - it will be in 4 or 5 ply. Another long project skips to the top of the immediate to do list. Did i mention he likes plain PLAIN jumpers. I might be able to talk him into a simple cable...but in all likelihood it will be a rib or stocking stitch jumper.
An idea occurs a good excuse to order some new Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury yarn though.
