The other reason that the sweater will have to wait for assembly is that this arrived in the mail yesterday.
My intention was to order the needles for my husband's Christmas sweater and immediately start working on that. After two months of working with cream yarn I want color. (There's a tiny voice reminding me that my husband's sweater is green which is in fact a color, but it's being drowned out by a whiny voice saying socks are fun and fast and we want fun and fast.) Since this is a pair of socks for my husband and he's given me permission to make socks before sweater the sweater will just have to wait.
*If you're wondering the yarn is Stroll Fingering in Harvest Tonal from Knit Picks.
