I’m trying to make Christmas gifts for everyone on my list this year. We’ll see how that goes, since this is only the first complete one, and I haven’t even figured out what the others will be. There may be books in store for the several of them! 😉

At any rate, my first Christmas gift is done, and I even got the ends woven in, which is a big deal for me. Oh, how I hate finishing! I do love this pattern, though; it’s such a fun knit, and quite quick given the worsted weight yarn, and the fact that I can do the cables without a cable needle for this particular one. I used some handspun I purchased at a Fibrefest a few years ago for this Koolhaas for my dad. I like the result: the lines are much softer than they would otherwise be, but the effect is still pleasing, and my dad will love the colour. And yet, now that I think about it, perhaps this could be for my brother in law, while my dad gets some worsted weight socks? Hmmm….
