Now to figure out what’s next.  It’s time for me to use my 7 skeins of Cascade 220 for a sweater for me.  I’m trying to decide between Sahara and the February Fitted Pullover.  What do you think?  Alive, Dead, both, or neither?

    I missed my yearly pair of socks in 2011. Yup one pair per year. I say go for the February Sweater Pullover – the lace pattern is quite enjoyable to knit (even though I needed lots of stitch markers at first).

    I’ve knit Sahara and I loved it. I’ve been wanting to do the other, but …well … you know how it goes.

    As for the socks: Mazel Tov?
