Warm Cocoons

My bed was so cozy and warm this morning, I had a very very hard time to get out of it.  I would go back to bed right now to be cozy again but that would be very very bad. I might never get out of it again.

There is work to consider so I will be a responsible adult.  Grudgingly.

I knit on my sweater last night.  Not too much more and the body will be done.  I knits 2 cable twists last night and I was thinking I needed 4 or 5.  

I will measure against some of my other sweaters though and go with that.  This is the point where I have, on occasion, 'ruined' a sweater because I did not knit long enough.  The black sweater is a good example of it.  
Needed another couple of inches.  The extra couple of inches on the bottom mean this is fast becoming one of my favourites.  And I still could knit the sleeves longer.  It is a very warm sweater and I don't want it to be too warm.

The blue sweater is another example.
It is an absolutely perfect sweater and I wear it a ton.  It would be even better if I had used up that last ball of yarn to make it just that little bit longer.

On this Red sweater, I really want that little bit longer.  I might even go a little bit longer than that little bit longer.  There is a point though where it gets to be too much of a good thing and I don't want to go there.  what I am looking for is a length where I feel like I am wrapped in a good warm blankie and I never want to come out of it.  I don't want to feel  like I am overwhelmed by the blankets piled on top of me.

I am sensing a theme this morning.  A warm and cozy cocoon.  You can crave that like anything else.
