Oh, I have missed the boat this year, and definitely don't intend to attempt a sweater in 4 days (yes, yes I know it is possible, some of you crazy folk out there have done it, but I simply don't have the attention span or willpower required). I'll need to content myself with some simple socks, mulled wine and walnut cake, what a hardship...
There are, however, a few items I'd love to add to my list to knit for next year.

|"The Perfect Christmas Jumper", by Susan Crawford|
|"Strokkur" by Ysolda|
One of my current top 'to-do' yoked sweaters, this is another aran masterpiece. Lovely detail without taking over the whole sweater. It's also one of those patterns I really want to knit *exactly* as it was made originally. Good excuse for some post-christmas yarn shopping then?
|"Clayquot" by Tin Can Knits|
Clayquot is one of the new patterns from Tin Can Knits newest book 'Road Trip'. As with their other cardigans (e.g. Lush, which I knitted a few months ago), the pattern is simply written, pleasing to read and easy to knit. This one is definitely on the cards!

Do you have a christmas jumper you've knit for yourself? Or intend to? I'm afraid it'll be next year before I join you...
