First of all, I want to thank all of you for your Congratulatory comments on my wedding. Scott and I are enjoying married life - and it IS different than living together! Wasn't sure it would be, but it is in a very good way. I am very, very happy.
I actually have two FO's but they will be blocking today. I will post about them when they are done. So today I am going to show you some WIP's. I have several WIP's going but some of them are going to be frogged, I think. I am just not that thrilled about them. Here are the one's that I am loving:
Fireside Sweater (rav link): I bought the yarn for this last winter when I saw the pattern appear on Ravelry. Have you all seen the movie The Holiday? It is one of my favorite movies and I can't even tell you how many times I have seen it. I fell in love with the sweater Cameron Diaz was wearing (as did most knitters!) and I am so glad someone decided to duplicate it and publish a pattern! I figured if I start the sweater now, then I will get use out of it all fall and winter. So far I have finished the right front and cast on for the left frot last night. The right front only took about 5 days to knit. So I think this is going to fly off the needles.
There are some funky issues with the cable charts, but if you are experienced with cables and reading charts you will catch it right away. After a few repeats you don't even need the charts, it is pretty obvious where to cross the cables and there are cable crossing in every right side row. I will post more details on this when I am finished with the sweater. I know I am going to love this. I am using Cascade Ecological wool, which I have used on my City Cape, and it blocks out so nicely.
Next up is Backward Cabled Pullover. (Rav link) I am knitting this with the Sexy Knitters KAL. I am using Debbie Bliss Cathay which I bought for a tank top a couple years ago that I never finished. The problem is, the unfinished top and remaining balls of yarn are packed in storage boxes. So Scott and I need to pull the boxes down this weekend so I can find the yarn and finish the sweater! Hopefully I will find it. I know what bag it is in.....I just don't know WHERE it is!
I guess that is it for now! Hopefully I can find a time to take pics of my FO's in the next day or two. Kids are starting school tomorrow so it is going to be a busy week!
