I know, I know, It's only pressure I put on myself but I truly enjoy making and giving gifts to my family & friends. Last year Mom got the sweater well, Chase did too but that's because I got a REALLY early start on my knitting.
This year it's Dad's turn. This pattern is fun to knit but next time maybe for a smaller person! Dad's a size 52...I believe I stated before that I felt like I was knitting and knitting...while getting no where! Well, I got somewhere!! Finished!!!! I still need to block it...the pattern wants to accordion.
When choosing the pattern I wanted something Aran and "Santa-ish"...what do you think? (Note: it's my turtleneck, I don't think my Dad is much of a T-neck wearer)

While we are on the subject of "Dad" or this time of year I should say Santa!
This picture was taken a month ago...can you believe it? When I was a kid Santa arrived the weekend following Thanksgiving.
He was "THE" Santa that arrived at the mall...what a scene it was! They hired a white carriage drawn by 2 snow white horses to bring him amongst the throngs of adoring fans...a snow machine was going, it was quite a scene! He was totally swarmed. I told Hubby afterwards it was like a Rock Star arriving at the venue! He was glowing...
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
