Today I have two projects on the needles that I need to make some progress with. The first is the Reconstruction Sweater. I have knit some on the body, but still have about 12 inches or more to go. Can't decide if I want to add a few more stripes or not. My goal is to finish this one next week when my son gets back from the ex's and can try it on as I go.
I became so bored with working on this once I got to the "knit around for eternity" part of the pattern that I cast on for another top-down sweater, this time a cardigan for myself. That makes--count them!-- 4 sweaters on the needles now. However, since I am also writing this pattern, I can't give you much detail except that I have finished the yoke and have divided for the sleeves. Besides, this one is top secret until it's finished. The pattern will be for sale on Ravelry. I am in L-O-V-E with the Naturally Caron SPA bamboo blend that I am using, though, and even though it's store bought and part acrylic and not a fancy-schmancy handspun, I will definitely be using it again. It has the most lovely drape. So, all you get is a glimpse. My goal with this one is to finish it by early next week. Today is the first overcast, "cool" day we've had in about 2 months, maybe longer, so there will be knitting.
And, yes, that is a giant Mason jar that I am using to keep my skein from wandering. Does that make me a little too "country" or just creative?
