A Sweater and a New Obsession

I am plugging away on the sweater for the Punkinbug. I just have the two sleeves left to do. I have already done the neck edging. It isn't perfect but it doesn't look bad enough to rip it out and do it over.

I finally cast on that sock yarn that I have been looking at for about two weeks now. I am doing the Sunday Swing pattern from Knitty. This pattern is super easy and it goes really fast. I am on the heel flap of the first sock. I would be farther along but I have been working on the sweater too.

Speaking of Knitty I am so wanting to make this pattern. I am thinking my Strawberry Shortcake that I spun might be good for them.

Another Project is Done

I guess this week has been for finishing around here. I finished up my Mitt Envy fingerless gloves (Ravelry). I knit these out of my handspun. I really enjoyed knitting these. I am not quite how much use I will get out of them here in Minnesota since the winter is kind of cold enough for full gloves and mittens. They might be more useful in the Spring and Fall when it is not quite as chilly.

I guess I will need to think about starting a new portable project since the only projects I have left on the needles are a sweater and a circular shawl. I guess I will cast on the socks I was pondering the other day.

Hah!!! They are finished. I have no idea why it took me over six weeks to knit these socks when the I knit about half of the second one yesterday. I am just glad they are finished.

Another Sweater and other Odds and Ends

If making one sweater wasn't enough I started one for the Punkinbug a couple of weeks ago. It is going pretty smoothly and I have just a couple more inches left on the body and then the sleeves and the neckline. I think she will really like it.

I have been wanting to start a new pair of socks. I just can't make myself start them until I finish the pair for the Punkin. I am on the heel flap of the second sock but seem to hit a roadblock of not wanting to finish them. I am determined to finish them sometime this week. This is the yarn I have waiting to start my next pair which I think I will use this pattern.

This is just to show you that a little boy forehead and cement just don't mix!!!!
