Yawn. I should be at my knitting group now, but things conspired against me tonight. I could go now for the last hour, but I'm feeling too lazy. But not too lazy to write about my newest projects!
First of all, I realized that all I had on the sticks were sweaters for Owen and David. Nothing for me. That's just wrong! I had been promising myself I could start a sweater for me that I've had the yarn for since last February (a birthday present from Mom) as soon as I finished enough projects. This is what I am knitting:
It's the Sirdar denim chunky sweater. I've been lusting after it for a while, especially after Ms. Bestitched made a similar sweater a while back. I got some Valley Yarn Berkshire Bulky in "wine" for mine. So far I just have the bottom ribbing done so it's not exciting enough to photograph. I'm doing a huge modification of the pattern though: I'm doing it in the round (Annie, are you proud of me?).
If that wasn't enough to keep me busy, I cast on for an Elizabeth Zimmermann Tomten for Owen. This isn't just jacket, as it will double as a Halloween costume. I'm thinking just add ears and a tail and you have a black cat, right?
With any luck I'll make enough progress on these projects to have something worthy of a photograph soon.
