Well I Did It

It only took me a little over 11 months but I finally finished my first sweater. I am very happy with it, it fits me and that is the important part. I wore it and received compliments and people being amazed that someone could actually knit something like that. Punkin's teacher from last year said my stitches were so even that it looked like it was knitted on a machine. I am already scoping out my next sweater project, I am thinking an Aran.

Not Much Blogging

But there has been quite a bit of knitting happening.

I seemed to get on a finishing kick this month which was pretty good. I finished these socks today. They have been on the needles since August 22, 2009. I am so glad that these are done. I discovered while knitting these that working with black yarn makes my eyes tired. I don't see a lot of knitting with black yarn in my future.

There is nothing that I enjoy more than knitting with my handspun yarn. I have been on a scarf/cowl kick lately. I have knit two scarves and one cowl from handspun since the beginning of September. Unfortunately I don't have any handspun at the moment that is begging to be a scarf so it might be a while before I will make another. I started this at the end of October and finished it a little over a week ago.

I have another finished object to share, but I will save it for my next post.
