The Dark Time

This is the time of year I'm least enthusiastic about outside of the January/February freeze. Too many hours of dark, but the Winter Solstice (12/22/15) is nearly upon us and then a slow return to more daylight.

In the meantime, there are things to knit! Most recent FO, toddler pullover.

I quite like this pattern, Benjamin. It was that collar that decided me to buy it and try it out.

I reinforced the seams as kids are hard on collars.

Just a lovely knit and sweater.
