And I really need to knit myself a big fluffy warm sweater.  The other day I started on a sweater for Jax, but I b/o to see if my gauge was on (according to what was on my needles it was fine; but we all know that looks can be deceiving).  It wasn’t and in fact, to make the sweater work, I’d need to double the number of sts c/o.  My other issue is that once knit up, the sweater has ended up looking very camo.  Hm.

It’s been below zero for the past week and we had a super blizzard over the weekend.  All of this cold is making me rethink my stance on fluffy sweaters.  Our house is consistently 68 degrees.  Which is a huge bump from the -26 highs of ourside.  But I still find myself shivering and curling up under a blanket on the couch and being an immovable lump for most of the day.  Now that I’ve got it into my head that I want a sweater, I’ve been looking at the big bulky yarn and making note of what catches my eye.  So far not much, but I haven’t looked all that hard quuiiiite yet.  🙂
