My final, planned sweater for 2015 is my second Glenora. This Glenora will be for my niece. The same niece that asked for a sweater last year and at that time, I knit her a top down brown and blue raglan knit in Cotton Tweed.
This year she only mentioned that she would like a second sweater as I was about to walk out the door for home after our Thanksgiving dinner. That meant little time to search ravelry for pattern ideas. I was wearing my Glenora and asked "Well, do you like this one?"
"Oh yea," she said "and especially the buttons."
So Glenora number two it was to be. In a maroon colour she said. Finding Cascade Eco in maroon was a challenge and in the end had to be ordered. That took two weeks. Then I had to finish Snowflake which took another week, delaying the start of Glenora #2 until November 30.
Now the deadline looms, as my family Christmas is this coming Saturday. Five days to finish. Wish I could knit with crossed fingers.
