Finished Sweater in 5 days

cast on last tuesday night, finished Saturday. Knitting up at 1.875 sts/inch on a size 17 needle holding two (count them, two) Lamb's Pride Bulky!

It's the perfect sweater for my house temperature. I keep it at 60 degrees, so some good wool helps!

My recent knitting project is to the left. This is knit using the Baba Yarn that's from my stash. I made a vest using this yarn and was quite happy with the speed and the result. Because I used some of the yarn in that project, I might not have enough yarn to complete my sleeves. *sigh*

I am willing to pull out the vest to complete the sleeves.

Details: Knit in the round using a size 11 needle. It is a K2, P2 rib pattern of my own design. It is meant to be a comfy sweater. The ribbing will be nice after I block it. I've got just about 6 skeins left. I'm knitting the sleeves down in the ribbing except for the under arms. No one wants ribbing in their underarms, do they? I don't. I'll be able to hide the armhole decreases in the underarm area.

I like the zigzag purple pattern, don't you?

Socks that Rock

I got an email that surprised me! I thought I didn't make it as part of the Socks that Rock club. But apparently, I did. Back in October I "pre-registered" and it took.

My first shipment should arrive in February.

Nice. Very nice.

Welcome to 2007

Let's try this:

Can you post a comment?

I've been knitting quite a bit and have yet to complete anything over the last few weeks. I've been working on a two vests and have steeks to complete on one then finishing and running in ends on the other.
