i've been working on forecast lately and i'm really loving the pattern. top down raglans are probably my new favorite thing in the world.



i've changed the bobbles to 3-stitch because five is right out. i'm extending the length of the ribbing at the bottom of the body and i'm going to start the ribbing on the sleeves after the elbow too. the sweater is snug, but better snug than loose. i think it should fit fine but i need to get buttons. what color? decisions, decisions.

another thing about this sweater...i think i'm running out of yarn. the pattern said 4 skeins and i'm almost done with my third and i haven't started the sleeves...fingers crossed.

mail time

here's the mail it never fails it makes me wannna wag my tail; when it comes i wanna wail, MAIL!!!

enough of that blues clues crap (WHY do i know that song?) knitpicks brought happiness right to my door.

shine sport, in "butter." it's quite a lover-ly color. this will be another shibori experiment using eyelets with wool strung through them.

i bought the "sweet mary jane" pattern and alpaca cloud in "midnight" it's either going to be granny, or funky when it's done. let's hope for funky.

and this, my friends, is my favorite part...COLOR CARDS!!!

oh, how i love color cards. it's so nice to really see the colors and not just hope they are what your monitor tells you. fab.

also, i finished Kyle's sock the first and i'm working on Kyle's sock the second.

unfortunately, Kyle's sock the second will probably not be done in time and it's all Nessie's fault. you see, Nessie likes yarn too, so she thrashed my ball of yarn until it became this horrible knot...

she is so lucky she's cute.

oh, here's Bear in a shirt.


knit tote

i sewed about knitting. is anyone surprised by that? no, i didn't think so.

a purl tote will probably happen next, although, i have no fabric for that one yet. we can dream...

more later (and it'll be real knitting too!)
