My friend Becca of Knitter’s Playground has just put out her first pattern for sale on Ravelry and I had to share. Becca was one of my closest friends in college and partly to blame for all my yarn because she used to manage the local yarn store where I would go to hang out with her and knit and then one day she hired me, it was one of the funnest jobs ever but most of my pay check ended up back in the shop. She saved me from dorm food more times then I can count and was always there in a pinch. The least I can do is give her a little free advertising, plus it is a VERY cute pattern.

After completing the back I had gotten 6 inches into the front only to have to rip it out and half halfheartedly start over. Then the first few inches languished for a year due to lost momentum. It is a common knitting problem and nothing is sadder then losing your mojo for a project, but I am happy to report mine is back. Last night I finally made it into the decrease rows and had the right number of stitches on the bias side panels so I can confidently knit on. Now the challenge is to finish this puppy before next month so that 1) I can wear it! 2) So I can cast on for this! :
This is the February Ladies Sweater by Pamela Wynne ; it is an adult version of Elizabeth Zimmerman’s “Baby Sweater on Two Needles,” from Knitter’s Almanac. The Berkeley gals have decided to do a knit along next month so that gives me about 3 weeks to knit up the rest of Sidelines and get yarn figured out for the F.L.S.
And I already have my next project after F.L.S. all picked out! It will be another sweater, also a top down, Margot by Linden Heflin. I even have the yarn already. This was in fact going to be my next project but then the KAL was organized.
That is currently all I have planned other then to finish up a couple UFO still hanging around. I am hoping to back into the swing of blogging more in depth again too but is has been hard without a good camera, hopefully ours gets sent in to be fixed soon.
All for now!
By popular demand, here are the fingerless gloves with the stockings. They where made with the extra sleeve ends by cutting a 1 inch snip about 1-1.5 inches down from the edging. I cut them so the seams of the sleeves ended up on the palm side. Now they are keeping my hands warm while I type this post!
