Fall Knitting

I like fall so much, and I always look forward to fall knitting, also. There's so many great patterns and yarns, and I'm beginning to want to cast on for several projects at once.

So, I created a mosaic of some of the projects I'd like to knit.

For details, click here.

Yeah, I think I'd need about three times as much time as I have to knit all that. Or maybe four times as much. At least I've got lots to choose from! I'll be starting on the Equinox Yoke Pullover first. Here's the yarn, all wound and ready to go.

I've actually made my swatch and just need to block it now. And in other knitting news, the front and back of the Josephine Top are finally finished, and I hope to do the sleeves tonight.

I've also added another panel to the Babette Blanket - just one more to go!

I had to frog my Meida's Sock because I couldn't get the leg on past my heel - it was too tight. I've always been a tight knitter, so I guess this is a reminder to loosen up a bit.

I'm not sure if I'll try the Meida's with this yarn again, maybe I'll make another pair of Waving Lace Socks.

Hopefully I'll have a finished Josephine Top for next time!

Hi There

Back again, after another long abscence. I've really got to post more regularly:)

My main project lately has been the Josephine Top from Interweave Knits Summer 2007. I finished the back:

And started the front:

This photo's a little old - I'm just finishing the lace portion and will be starting the bodice portion. I was hoping to have the top finished in time for the vacation my Mom, sisters and I were on in California, but it didn't work out, plus, I was a little distracted helping my sister Anna knit a couple toys for some freinds' children that we visited.

This is the only photo I have of either one. I wish I would have gotten a photo of the monkey after his face was embroidered and of the snake that came out so well.

See you next time! I'm looking forward to starting my fall knitting, so I'll be writing about that.
