I was on an eight hour (round) road trip this past Saturday, so I got a lot of knitting done. ;)
1. Francis:

I finally decided on knitting this cowl neck sweater. I'll probably knit the cardigan design idea mentioned in the last post after I get my Christmas presents finished.

I'm pretty much working out my own pattern for this sweater, I'll have details on the mods upon completion.
2. Christmas Present One: Ribbed Hat
I finished this but haven't gotten an FO picture yet. Once it's blocked I'll have it on Ravelry
Super simple little hat. Knit for my brother.

3. Hat for me:

This one didn't exactly work out. But I did knit nearly an entire hat in just a few hours. Even though I was able to knit a hat this exact same size for my brother out of one skein of yarn (and had twenty yards leftover) I didn't have enough yarn to finish this hat. I'll need to go back and add a stripe of a different color or something I suppose. I may also find a bit more of this yarn in my stash box. I know I had leftovers from a couple of projects I made with it, so I'm holding out hope!

Technically I didn't knit on this project at all during the road trip. This is for a Christmas gift, and honestly I've been stalling on it. My deadline is shorter for this project though (mid-December) so I better get knitting!

Preview photo ;)
Hehe, you'll have to wait a few more days for this one. I'll get some FO photos (was hoping to get some once it snows again actually) and then post details.

Woah, you've come a long way on the sweater since the trip! I thought I would get a lot more knitting done than I actually did. Still thankful I had that book light for the way back!
