Help Me Choose My Christmas Eve Cast-on

With my Christmas gift knitting complete and Christmas Day just 4 days away, it's time for me to start thinking about what I want to start knitting on Christmas Eve and I need your help. Here's a list of my top 6 contenders. Let me know which one you think I need to make next.


Top:

  • Sunset Highway by Caitlin Hunter This would be a swell sweater to have on my January vacay. I already have the yarn that I need, but it's a sock weight sweater so it may take awhile to finish.
  • Wonder Woman Wrap by Carissa Browning What better way to ring in the new year than with a bit of girl power! This pattern was on my #2017MakeNine list and I purchased some yarn to knit this up at the Flock & Fiber Festival this fall.
  • Breathing Space by Veera Valimaki This is another pattern from my #2017MakeNine list and I already have the pattern for it. I love the colors and the shape of it!
Bottom:
  • Tartan Lula Loop by Wool and the Gang I purchased the yarn and pattern for this scarf several years ago and never knit it up. It would be lovely to have this to beat the winter chills.
  • Sassy Santa Hat I got a random skein of Knitted Wit yarn at the Flock & Fiber Festival that vaguely resembles their Sassy Santa colorway, and it might be nice to have a festive cap to wear to work on Christmas Day.
  • Salal cardigan by Andi Satterlund  This is another #2017Make Nine list item. I started this cardigan during Andi Satterlund's Salal KAL but it knit up larger than I wanted and I frogged it and vowed to knit a smaller size at a later day.
So, which one should I start on Christmas eve? Let me know in the comments below.
