I’m pretty excited about the fact that I finished a sweater for S this year. She’s almost 3, but wears clothes for kids twice her age. Her head? we’re not going to talk about that. I planned to knit a cabled pullover (or cardigan? I’m not sure) for her last year out of Acadia in Cranberry, but she grew out of that before I had a chance to get to the armhole bind off at the back.
This year, I kept it simple and it paid off!
I named this one Perch. The ribbing gives her some growing room throughout the season, but the knitting was not monotonous. Well, it was, but in a rhythmic way. I can see myself doing the rare thing for me and knitting her another one when she grows out of this.

Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,900 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 48 trips to carry that many people.

I’ve got a pile of knits, some going back to 2003 when I started knitting again. I don’t wear all of them, but I don’t want to rip any of it out to knit something else. For one thing, it’s unlikely that I’ll rip, rewind, and knit something else to be ready this season. On the other hand, I have an entire bin of hand knits that get washed and blocked every year and I don’t do anything with most of them. I mean, honestly, how many scarves can one person have?
Maybe I just need to suck it up and make a drop-off at the local thrift store. It has been predicted that Philly would get a colder winter this year in comparison to last year’s, but no one should need a dozen scarves. C’mon!
