Tracy's Wish List

This year, I jotted things down as it occurred to me that I would like them. This helped prevent me from buying them for myself, and to compile a great wish list. I hope this is helpful for all you shoppers out there!

From Stitch in Time:
Claudia Hand Painted sock yarn
Assorted books at Stitch in Time (see my amazon wish list for books)
Gift certificates

Bath and Body Works True Blue Spa foot and body products

Fleece Artist sock yarn (one source is

Nice pajamas, size medium (all my larges are falling down)

Here is the Berlin Sweater from Simply Knits 3. It is warm, pink, and so comfy. The pattern is 2x2 ribbing but diagonally, so you move your stitches over every other row. That's a lot of ribbing! I do wish that it weren't so boxy and didn't have such long armholes. Next time, I will follow my gut and add waist shaping to pretty much anything I make again ever.

I used 6 skeins of Berroco's Ultra Alpaca, so this sweater was less than $50 to make. I trimmed the front bands with some chocolate brown of the same yarn that I had on hand (I needed to lessen the pink).

My favorite part of the sweater is the flare on the cuffs. I love it!
