First of all: Happy New Year to every one of you!
So I'm back after a few weeks Christmas break. Today was my first day back at work since Christmas, and the time off was well deserved and much appreciated, I feel more energized again and anxious to get on with new projects. We spent the holiday visiting friends and family and even though I had great many plans (fixing our "new" vintage kitchen chairs, painting the bedroom, sewing curtains and knitting, knitting and maybe even some more knitting) all of them ended up left undone. I did have some time to finish a few projects I had on my needles, such as this adorably chunky sweater.
I used Drops Alpaca for it, knitting with the yarn held double all the way. It's quite a simple and straightforward pattern, maybe even a bit meditative to knit at times and I really enjoyed knitting it. It works marvelously as a holiday TV time knitting project.
