Just Knittin’

That’s about all I accomplished last night and today.  Oh there was a load or two of laundry and I did go out to a late lunch with a friend today and a trip to the grocery store, but the rest of the time I’ve been in lazy mode due to a headache that has finally gone away. I think it’s the damp weather that caused it (another gray, cool and gloomy day). 

 The Woven Ribbons quilt was given its final once over for stray threads and has been washed and is in the dryer ready to deliver to the office on Monday for the Komen Auction fundraiser.

While at the grocery store I picked up a copy of Vogue Knitting and absolutely fell in love with a capelet design pictured there.  The design was in an ad (not a pattern in the issue); it’s called the Milkweed Capelet.  There are some other really great designs on that site too.  I’m definitely going to have to make one of these but have told myself I CANNOT do so until after I finish at least one of the sweaters in the works.  Plus the Camp Loopy first project will be starting soon so I shall try not to think about ordering yarn and pattern yet for Milkweed. 🙂

A few more rows of the sweater done.

You come back and do the sleeves afterwards so the live stitches for those are just on scrap yarn at the moment.  But I’ve gotten int o the lace work at the bottom which is a simple stitch pattern to rememmber – love not having to keep looking at the instructions every row.  If I like this when it’s done, I think I will make another in plain yarn.  Due to the striping nature of this one, the left and right sides look different tho they are the same stitch.  It will be fine, since I really like the yarn, but would look better in a solid.  The colors in this photo are a bit off – true color of yarn is in the close up photo.   It’s hard to get a good shot of the lace work pattern but I tried.

Time to see if the quilt is dry and then back to the knitting.
