Lots of knitting going on around here

These are the projects that I am currently working on in rotation…I am about to get a little crazy and add one more.

I realized that 3 out of 4 family members have sweaters started (and one may even get finished this year!), so I had Lorelai snuggle up next to me and we looked at patterns over at ravelry. She quickly decided on this cupcake sweater, and as she didn’t want to look at anymore patterns, well it was settled.

Maybe I can do a daily sweater rotation:

My mother in laws Min Ulla on Fridays

Hmmm that leaves two more days…..I am currently browsing ideas.

Have a nice night folks!

P.S.

Sorry for the whiplash with the color schemes, Lorelai
convinced me that I should change things up a bit…

Someday…..

I will finish my sweater, I am hell bent on it. The sleeves are the only thing I have left to do, you’d think it would be a breeze as I just need to seed stitch until I reach twelve inches, unfortunately I continue to find little mistakes here and there that get under my skin.

I’ve taken a step away from knitting for a few days, I need to finish the sandals & sewing a linen work shirt for my husband, then I will finish the bartók tunik, so I can continue on with my Jane Austen project.

In other news for a guild project, I have washed & cleaned fleece. I am now waiting for my hand carders to arrive in the mail so I can move on to the carding, spinning, & creating something special. What am I going to make?! I’m not sure but I’m sure something in these books will inspire me

Now those are not all of my books, however they are the ones that my husband gave my for Christmas, so it would be fantastic to use a pattern in one of these books.

I’m very excited about the carders, my husband was debating back and forth about it as he did not want to pay the shipping ($13), orders over $100 are free. I casually mentioned several hundred times, that we could just add the spinning wheel I want into the cart and bypass shipping all together, that solution was declined. Oh well, such is life.

Carrack likes to free range with the ladies.

Have a great weekend folks.
