Merry Christmas!




It's Christmas Eve! I don't know about everyone else out there but all of us here at McA are relieved to be finished the piles of Christmas knitting we had to do. As with every year no one started as early as they meant to and I for one was knitting right up until today.

It is such a nice feeling to have all the gifts wrapped and ready for tomorrow. Now we're all looking forward to starting our holiday projects. After all that knitting for others it's going to be so nice to knit for ourselves again.

I've picked up one of last winter's Sirdar patterns to knit for myself. I'm going to do the long sleeved version of pattern 9245 (you can have a nosey here on the website if you like: http://www.mcadirect.com/shop/sirdar-pattern-9245-cardigan-in-denim-chunky-p-2860.html).

It should be in Denim Chunky but as most of the Sirdar chunky yarns have the same tension I decided to use Click Chunky as I love the bright colours, especially the new shades they just brought out.

We hope everyone out there has as much fun as we will not-knitting-for-Christmas over the festive period and as always we would love to see what you are planning for your first post-Christmas knit.

Merry Christmas from me and everyone here at McA!
