Cabin Fever!

Cabin Fever is going to be arriving here at the shop over the next few weeks. This great felted bag is one of the patterns this sister team publish. I knit up a sample in Kerzter's Rejuvenation and it came together really quickly on 10mm needles with the worsted weight yarn held double. It seems I'm all about these quick projects these days.

February is coming...

I really have been working on my February Lady Sweater. I hope everyone else has had time to squeeze it into their summer as well. Though, I'm shocked at how little knitting time there has been in my days. Funny, when it's not dark by 8 and too cold to be outside I spend a lot more time doing out door things that aren't exactly knit friendly.

Anyhoo.. I have been squeezing this sweater in there as well as a few other small projects. Swatching commenced, I am hitting pretty close to guage the pattern is calling for. The debate for me is that I really fall between chest sizes and also I tend to need more room in the shoulder and arms than most 'lady like' cuts allow for.

The result being that I am knitting a 41. So far, so good. The body is actually all done and I've started on sleeves. Sorry, I know I just skipped a lot of good knitting in there but there isn't much more to tell. I believe there are a few more rows after the eyelet increases to make room for my shoulders but other than that... knit, knit and knit some more. Hopefully I can make the self imposed labour day deadline.

Maybe this will be a Fall Fair entry.

I can blog from my phone?!

Testing... If this works expect to hear a lot more from me!
