My project for this morning is an ornament for my mom. I'm thinking I'll do a tiny sweater, and I know there's a pattern for one in Last-Minute Knitted Gifts, which is a book I like very much in the general way of things. I've made several patterns from it, including the tiny stocking that's in the same chunk with the tiny sweater. However. The tiny sweater pattern wants you to KNIT IT IN PIECES AND SEAM IT TOGETHER. WTF? I don't want to be dealing with tiny horrible seams.

I guess it's time to see if I can get the proportions right on a tiny top-down raglan. Hopefully I will not get the urge to make this more complicated than it has to be, and I will not embroider all kinds of ghastly stuff on it to make it a true Christmas sweater.
