christmas plans

It’s that time of year again.  I love the planning – yarn, patterns, dreams of wearing the goodies.

This year’s top contenders for my Christmas vaca knitting are


  • Snowflake – lace that’s both pretty and tasteful
  • Springfield – all-over lace that’s still understated
  • Ellery – I can’t resist a good cowl
  • Zippity – gorgeous cowl and weekend-wearing perfection
  • Calligraphy – how can you deny that gorgeously huge collar?
  • Bello – easy-wearing pullover with a lovely cable
  • Charleston Tea – cardigan, hood, cables.  enough said.
  • Cassis – lace details and a big collar

I have 1,500 yards of this beautiful Augergine DK from Mellifera Yarns on its way to me.  It should be enough for any of the designs I listed above.

It’s kinda fun when it’s coming from another country – I can’t obsessively check tracking every day to see where it is.  I’m forced to not-so-patiently wait for it to show up on my doorstep.

While I was at it, I enjoyed taking it back and looking at what I faved 5 years ago for Christmas 2009.


Lots of mittens and lots of colorwork.  What a difference 5 years can make.

I’ll catch you on the purl side…

  1. What a fun idea… to see what your knitting taste was several years ago. Even though it has evolved, I think your taste in knitting has been consistently good.
