My son... the happy looking one on the right, is going to be a high school senior this year. I plan on knitting a blanket for him to take to college (one year from now) ~ smart of me to know my tendency to procrastinate, and start it NOW! In addition I am hellbent on knitting an abundance of sweaters/tops for myself this year... school year that is. I go by the school calendar which starts Sept. 1st as both my kids live by it and I work in it (the school that is).
I LOVE handknits! So... by hook or by crook I intend to build my wearable wardrobe while diminishing the size of my overabundant stash.
I gave my son some options... choose 2 or 3 of his favorite colors (I can start planning/knitting right away with just one trip to my LYS) OR choose the colors of the college he decides to attend (I'll have to wait it out). Either way I'm looking for pattern input. I will dig out my copy of Kay & Anne's http://masondixonknitting.com/ for ideas. But, I'd sure love some suggestions!
