So I'm back from the Crescent City with lots of work done on my Wicked sweater!! The camera (or maybe it is my photography skills) does not do the color justice at all (its mostly a solid color chocolate with slight variation). If I estimate based on the number of skeins required/used... I'm about 45% done! And I worked on this non-stop which is so unlike me. I tend to need to break my projects up a bit. I really wanted to get to the part where I could stop and try it on to see how it fits (hopefully just right!). I'm about 18 rows away from that point! Not bad for less than a week's work on my first sweater for me! Sure it helps that it is knit in the round, but who cares!
I only took four skeins of Artyarns along on the trip, so with about 30 minutes left on my flight I ran out, so I cast on my own Northstar hat (for men this time) for my dad. I'm still using Valley Yarns Shelburne (from Webs...can't beat the price!!). Dad has been requesting a few more hats for awhile, so this should be a quick knit (it has to be, because I really can't cast anything else on until I finish it or Wicked or another WIP from my list on one of my last posts...and I have a few projects I really want to start too!).
And the Knitty Board Secret Pal 8 is starting... my secret pal has already sent me an email and has been blogstalking....hi out there!!! She says we are so similar we might have been separated at birth! Yeah!! Can't wait!
Have a great week everyone! xoxox Irishgirlieknits
