It's December, Already! Bring on the Knitting!

Hello All,

Wow, it's December already!  Why does it always seem to sneak up on me?

I can tell it's winter because I've been bitten by the knitting bug.  I bought some Ultra Pima by Cascade back in October.  It's a chocolate brown.  Yum.  There was a pretty shawl made up in the yarn store which I had thought to make.  But I'm not concentrating very well when I'm knitting, so I just decided to do a garter stitch.  It's hard to fumble that.  What I really like about this yarn is the feel of it.  It's soft and drapey.  I've used one of the two skeins I bought and it's not nearly long enough.  More decisions, should I buy more of the same or something to coordinate.  I'm thinking a heather or fleck would be nice.

I'm thinking that once it's all done, I'll stitch it into a tube and join the ends for a continuous tube.

I'm linking up with Wool on Sundays, even though this is cotton yarn.

Be creative and stay warm.
