On Sunday I completed the half-finished Christmas gifts I had lying around and then, before my brain would nag me about other gifts I should make, I cast on for the Ultraviolet V-Neck.

I really don’t think you can appreciate the gorgeous, rich colour here (I really must figure out my camera’s white balance) but it’s such a perfect cranberry colour that I am desperate to finish it by the party on the 15th. What with a more hectic than usual work schedule, an interview to cram for, and one other gift still in progress, it really is a lost cause, but I can continue to deceive myself for a couple weeks.
