A finished sweater

Finished on Saturday night, and all ends sewn in Sunday morning.  Washed and just about dried.  Took me 2 weeks and 3 days, probably the fastest I've made myself a sweater.

37" circumference with sport wt yarn, about 7.25 skeins.  Size 5 needles.  Pattern from some Japanese pattern book I own plus my usual favorite fake cable.

Happy Chanukah!

Here's this year's menorah. 

Tiny progress

That's it.  My progress from yesterday.  Actually I knitted a bit more on both the sweater and the shawl, but there's not much point in photographing them since you can't tell how much I've done.

A few projects I'm working on

Some knitting:

Top photo is of a sweater for me.  Two lacy panels mirroring each other and separated by my favorite fake cable.  That cable ends up in almost everything I knit.  Mindlessly easy and pretty to make.

The scrunched up mess in the second photo will be a lace shawl, a mystery knit-a-long by Anna Victoria.  I love her work.  Always interesting stitches, no pattern work on the wrong side, and so very very lovely.  Yes, lace looks like an old rag when it's in process; just wait until it's blocked!


Still working on Whirligig.  I'm almost done with the 5th row, with 10 or 11 more to go plus the edging pieces.  The bottom piece shows a motif about to be sewn together with its mates.

Also in progress are 2 shawls, an expoding block quilt, and yet another string quilt.  It never ends, ever.

A yoke sweater for DD#2

Knit Picks Palette with about 6-7 balls of the green yarn and other assorted autumnal colors.  36" circumference.  I used Elizabeth Zimmermann's three and one pattern, which is one of my favorite yoke patterns.
