I'll be contacting you later for your info. Congratulations!
I tried to hold off as long as I could but I've started planning for D's Christmas Sweater 2014 (here are the 2012 and 2013 versions).
As you can see, I'm thinking colorwork.
I've had a few version of this sweater in my mind. Here are some of the options:
Round yoke, colorwork in yoke and a little at hem, classic.
V-neck, drop sleeve, colorwork in yoke only.
Colorwork around hem only, raglan (maybe?)
I really like the idea of a v-neck (easy on for little ones) but also don't love purling colorwork. However, one motif through the yoke might be manageable for everyone. I'm generally leaning away from a crew neck style since that's what I did last year and I'm up for something different.
What are your thoughts? Do you like colorwork? Is there any aspect you love/hate? I'd love to hear your thoughts! Take a moment to fill out the poll and/or leave a comment with your ideas.
