February Lady is done! Finished! Finito! Fin! You get the idea. Anyways, here's a picture taken with my self timer on the camera. I'll try to see if Brian can get some better pictures of this:I really like it. It's big and floppy and very warm from what I could tell in the 2 minutes I had it on. The colors are really nice and the sleeves almost matched even though I had given up tryng to actually make them match. I'm happy to have another finished sweater done now. Now on to Christmas knitting...

Speaking of, what are you all making this year? I haven't decided what I'm making for presents. I need to work on DF's Galaga sweater to see if I can get that done in time, but that's the only thing currently queued up. So what all are you doing?

Knit on...

It Was Almost Glorious

I almost finished the last sleeve on the February Lady. I'm 5 repeats away from being done with the thing, but I hit a wall at about 9:30 last night and had to put it down and go to bed. I've been getting up at 5:30 to go running on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday before I go to work. The only problem with this is that I am a little more sleepy in the evenings than I normally am. At least I'm getting in a workout though.

Anyways, here's the sweater:Have I mentioned before how much I really love the colors? One thing I realized though is that this sweater is going to be big on me. Gotta love losing weight!

Also, I did some spinning this weekend. When my hand tired of knitting, I picked up the spindle and spun for a bit before heading back to the knitting. Here's the green fluff:That's it for today. Hopefully there will be finished sweater shots on here tomorrow!

So Close...

I'm about half a sleeve away from being done with the February Lady sweater. I'm so close that all I want to do right now is go back home and sit down and finish it. Unfortunately, I also need to work in order to support my yarn habit, so I have to wait until I get home this afternoon to work on it. I'm really hoping to be done with it tonight, but it may be tomorrow since I suppose I also need to eat dinner sometime after this afternoon and that will require cooking.

Anyways, pictures up in the post tomorrow, one way or another!

The body is done on February Lady and I have started the first sleeves. After much planning and sorting yarn, I realized that the sleeves will not be able to match in the gradation pattern. I have decided I am ok with this and it will not ruin the sweater for me.

Have a great weekend!

That is all...

Hey, I actually have a picture for you today :oP

I am almost done with the body of the February Lady sweater. I'm now on the garter stitch bottom edging, so hopefully that will be done early next week and I can get to cracking on the sleeves and have this sweater finished soon!

Anyways, here's the picture of the blue blob:Knit on...

Still no pictures. I'll get some soon, I promise. I did finish a charity scarf, worked some on the mittens, and got 2 repeats done on February Lady last night. Since I have nothing else to show you, I'll leave you with a video instead :oP

I'm Still Here

I really am. Sorry for the lack of posts. I was sick all last week and didn't knit a single stitch when at home. I did manage to finish a pair of mittens, forgot to take a picture, and started a new pair of mittens and subsequently forgot to take a picture of those too, so I have a very glaring lack of photography to show you all. Perhaps tomorrow I'll have a finished scarf to show you so that all three of you who read my blog will come back :oP

Still Progressing

Slowly, but surely, the sweater is growing. It's now over 15 inches long and I can't wait to be done with it and wear it. Still not quite cool enough here, but it's starting to get a little cool in the mornings. Anyways, here's the picture progress:That's it for today. Hopefully by tomorrow I'll have another finished object to show you. Not the sweater, because I'm not that fast of a knitter :oP

Half Way There

I'm now about half way done with the body of the February Lady sweater. I was able to get 2 pattern repeats done last night and I'm hoping for a lot more tonight. I spent a good majority of the evening cleaning my apartment floors which had become a little yucky since I last mopped about a month ago. Anyways, here's the Lady progress:I also started a new work project now that the Dumbledore socks are completed. I am making a pair of Broad Street Mittens for a coworker who fell in love with mine. She asked nicely when I asked her if she wanted a pair of socks if she could get s pair of those mittens instead. So she picked out the yarn from my stash and I started them on Friday. I hope to be done with the first mitten sometime either today or tomorrow.

I'm definitely more consistent in my posts now that my hand is not giving me hell to knit! I did my required 4 rows on the sweater last night:It's growing nicely I think. The only reason I didn't get more done on that last night is because I brought home my work project to finish off the Dumbledore socks:I really, really like these socks! They fit perfectly (yeah, it's easier knitting socks for me since I can judge the size!) and I really like the colors in the socks.

And needless to say, I'm wearing them today! Hope everyone has a great weekend. I intend to start working on my next work project today and we'll see how far I can get on it this weekend.

There was actually a little bit of progress yesterday. Unfortunately, the biggest progress I made is at work right now, so I can't show it to you. I finished one sock and am almost half way done with the other. I'm hoping to finish the second sock today if I'm not too busy.

I did another repeat on February Lady. I have decided that if nothing else, I will knit 4 rows a day on this sweater until it's done. Here it is:I also worked some on the charity garter stitch scarf, so it has now grown too. I'm actually almost finished with it, so that's making me quite happy:About half a ball of yarn left until this is finished, so not too bad really.

That's it for today. Hopefully I'll have a finished pair of socks for tomorrow.
