I've been in completion mode these last few weeks and have been finishing projects left and right. The only problem now is I'm not sure what to knit next. It's time I start swatching and designing again. This means a strict ravelry diet till I get my sketches and swatches done. The above project is a simple cowl I've been knitting in my down time. I'm almost done with it and can't wait as this yarn has tried to be two other things before I got it right on the third try.
I also blocked the lace Abalone and am very pleased at how it turned out. Now I just need to style it and get some use out of it. The weather finally broke this weekend and it's back to feeling like fall again so I'm sure this will get worn.
Here's the other sweater project I've been dragging ass on. I started this back in June and then took a break to work on some Christmas gifts. Now I'm in the home stretch.
I was finishing the sleeve up the day I took this picture. Two episodes of the daily show and back to the body of the sweater. I stopped working on the body because I wanted to make sure I had enough yarn to make full length sleeves with thumb holes. The plan was for a long sleeve hoodie with a pocket in the front, but I think I only have enough yarn for a long sleeve hoodie and no pocket.
