There are only 5 days left to Christmas! I truly cannot believe how fast time has been going lately. I am nearly out of time to give hand-knit gifts this year, (my friends and family might be thanking their lucky stars right now) but one I am going to TRY to finish before Christmas is Girasole.
I’ve been working on this pretty steadily since Thanksgiving and I’m currently on skein 4 out of 5 so it might be do-able, but with 640 stitches per row – this isn’t a super quick knit. It’s a very enjoyable knit though, you kind of feel as though you’re making a masterpiece. Remember Katie’s gorgeous version of Girasole here and here?
I’m using Madelinetosh Vintage in the Rain Water colorway. I picked this up at Stitches East and had planned to make a post-baby sweater for myself, but got to thinking I might really love it for Girasole. If I finish on time my husband will open this on Christmas day.
