Just The Beginning

This is the beginning of my new sweater.   I am making the sleeves first and will do the three body pieces after I finish the sleeves.  I am debating whether to knit the body in one piece or the three pieces that the pattern has stated.  I have never changed the construction of a sweater before.

Not Much Knitting

I haven't been knitting much lately.   I have been spinning and reading more.  I am slowly plugging away on a couple pairs of socks and trying to finish a couple braids of fiber I have started.  These are Socks That Rock lightweight in Pixie Park.  It has been in my stash a long time.

I am spinning some Frabjous Fiber in Stained Glass.   This is a BFL/Sparkle base.

Stripey Awesomeness

I LOVE self striping sock yarn.  One of my favorites is Desert Vista Dyeworks.   I love the colors and they always make me want to keep knitting on them.  I haven't knit much this week so not a ton of progess though most of it was made today.  This morning when I was knitting while drinking coffee I was only on the first white stripe.

Finished Object Friday

I have a finished object on Friday.   The Kroy socks are done.  I used size 1 needles over 64 stitches in my usual Vanilla Ribbed socks.  I think this is the only sock pattern I have knit this year, and this is my third pair in 2014.   These may be a gift.

A New Project

I have three skeins of Malabrigo Lace that I was going to use for a Featherweight Cardi, but I just didn't trust that it would hold up very long.  I decided to use the yarn for a Girasole shawl instead.  I started it this morning and this is up to the beginning of chart B.

Since it is Spring Break, I had more time to knit today.  This picture is at the beginning of chart C.  I am on row 6 of the chart now.

Let's Try This Again

I had to rip out the Marple dress on Saturday after I realized it was going to be too big for my niece.  This is the progress I have made on the second attempt.
