My End of Year Knitting List

When it comes to knitting, I think I have completely unrealistic expectations of how much I can get done in a certain amount of time. Is it just me, or are all knitters like this? Honestly, I want to knit so many things and I forget just how long it takes (especially me) to complete a project. Even bearing this in mind, I have made a end-of-year list and I am hoping it isn't too ambitious.

Sweaters for the Twins:

This is the Knit for Kids Top Down Pullover by Diane Soucy. I haven't knit my boys anything in the longest time. I decided on a top down raglan - with no stripes. Just a simple, quick knit. Nolan, especially, has been requesting a blue sweater.

A Sweater for My Husband:

This is Hugo by Veronik Avery for Brooklyn Tweed. My husband has also been requesting that I knit him another sweater and really liked this design. This might just be his Christmas present this year.

My oldest son is at an age where I am not so sure he would wear a sweater if I knit one for him. He is really into sports and wears nothing but athletic pants and t-shirts. I bought him a pair of jeans recently and he looked at me and said "I am NOT wearing those." Kids - amiright? He will wear a hat/scarf/mittens if they are cool enough so I am throwing those on the list too.

I'm hoping that this list isn't too much for the next two months. I was going to throw a sweater on there for me too but I'm thinking that would be over the top!

I am the same, and even though I am quite a fast knitter, there are projects on my list that have been on there for ages. I love those jumpers, the one for your husband especially!
