Sweater Update

I've stayed on task...well...sort of. The sweater is nearly finished - pictures to come soon! I have half of the hood completed. This week I started back on my Mad Color Weave socks - second sock is down to mid-gussett. I received a swift and ball winder recently - it was fun winding all my recently purchased hanks of yarn...the simple pleasures in life!

Sweater Update

I've been staying on task with my top-down sweater: the body is done and the right sleeve needs only the garter stitch edging and a bind off. That leaves only the left sleeve and hood to complete and I'll be done. I like this pattern - it's a fast knit...but a boring knit. As a result, my socks have not moved anywhere - I'll really be ready to dive back into them when I'm done!

Overdue Post

My blog has suffered lately because my fingers have been busy! Finally, my husband's sweater is done - even the loose threads have been woven in! I got him to model it this evening, so here it is...

The next project I finished were my jaywalker socks.And now that one pair is complete, I just had to cast on another pair. Last week I purchased some Soxx Appeal by Knit One Crochet Too. It is 96% superwash merino, 3% nylon and 1% elastic - it's smooshy much like Fixation by Cascade. I've cast on the Embossed Leaves pattern from the Favorite Socks book by Interweave Knits.

I am also working on the second of the Mad Color Weave Socks, although I haven't gotten very far on it.

And lastly, I've been working on my sweater that was cast on back in the spring. It's a top down tunic sweater with a hood. I must say, after all the socks I've knit lately (Lacy patterns and all), this is really a boring knit - stockinette forever!Well...back to knitting!
