I cast on for the one bit of Christmas knitting that I am going to do this year. Trellis in Lion Brand Cotton Ease from my stash. This is for my the son of my husband's boss. The family loves the color orange, and I happen to have two balls in a bright orange that should be enough for the sweater, if I make a few mods.
I am knitting the body in one piece, to cut down on the seaming, and I think I am going to knit the collar onto the body as I go as well, so I only have to seam across the back.
I am also going to put the button holes on the "boy" side, unlike the version of this that I made for Corwin's first birthday.
