One of my good friends and I started a thing this year, where we knit the same sweater together. This is a really good way to get help from someone who may be having the same trouble you are, or give advice about something that you've conquered. So far this year we've done Julissa, Everything Nice (which I'm still not finished with), and are currently working on Miranda, which I shouldn't have even started. I couldn't help myself ... you can see why!
The pattern includes options for a hood (which I think I'll do), short or long sleeves (haven't decided yet) and pockets (definitely!). I love the cable detail on the front, too. I chose a plum color worsted weight yarn (Cascade 220). Unfortunately, I'm not really far enough along to take a decent photo, but take my word for it, this will be a nice sweater!
One of the things I want to work on is FINISHING the stuff I've started. I've got a whole bit bin here full of stuff that has been sitting here untouched, for months in most cases. At least one thing has been on needles for well over a year. What are your strategies for keeping projects moving toward completion? I find myself distracted by all the lovely patterns out there.
Until next time, happy knitting!
