It has been a cool minute since I've shared what is going on while "in progress" and flash some yarn p0rn your way too! :o)
My latest knit "in production" is the Buttony Sweater (btw - I love my new stitchmarkers)
this project actually kept me busy and made an experience much less excruciating during my wonderful f.o.u.r. hour P.rayer for J.udgement driving class *tight grin* (yes I got a ticket..and it wasn't even for speeding!!) Ugh!
I had a bumpy start with the vague raglan directions on the left panel, and really not sure how this thing will "fit" as I left it as a 'design element' (yeah I was lazy) Haha! So.......we will see LOL
But in the meantime, it is growing and ready for me to divide for the sleeves, where I will find out the "real" truth on if it will workout!! *cross your fingers for me*
This morning I swatched for a very long awaited project
...like I coveted on my knit pal Turtlegirl spring of last year
...like I bought the book only for this pattern
...like I purchased all 8 hanks of the yarn just for this project way back in May of this year (yes, 7 months ago)
THAT is how long awaited this project has been!!!
And it is thisSince I have overloaded you all with Noro figured it was time to switch off with my 2nd love Malabrigo!! LOLI just LURVE Stonechat!!! As you all already know crimson and chocolate is one of my favorite color combos!!
Originally I really wanted this shrug to be in Velvet Grape (my other fav malabrigo color), but once I discovered Stonechat some time ago, it was then I knew it had to be in this colorway instead!
Speaking about projects (and yummy malabrigo)! On my buttony sweater I am going to need....well buttons! :oD (gotta love w.al-m.art)Tell me which ones do you favor with this color? The silver ones on the left or gold ones on the right?? Remember there will be 12 of these running down my chest! Haha!
Drop your 2 cents in my comment box ! :o)
Well I am really eager to get some good knitting mileage in during my time off (I luv these candies!!)In the meantime, hope your holiday is on & poppin'!!! :oD
