I blocked the cardi and put on the buttons. I also finished my lizzard latice square.
I started a top-down baby cardigan for a friend who is expecting any day. I hope I can complete it before she is born!
I still have two single socks, and I will probably tackle them next, but after that I am going to work on a lace shawl.

Circumnavigated Cardigan Finished

Last night I put the last stitches into the cardigan and cast off. I still need to sew on the buttons and block it. I'll put pictures up as soon as I accomplish that. I've cast on for this month's Knit-A-Long block, Lizard Lattice and it has just a couple inches now.

I had 2 extra skeins of the yarn from my sweater so I took them back to my LYS last night when I went to knit night. They were kind enough to exchange them for some fingering weight hand-dyed lusciousness. I'm thinking of a lace shawl or possibly a short-sleeved sweater. We'll see what I decide once the square and the baby sweater I need to make next are off the needles. Well, possibly I'll tackle one of my two sock-in-progress before then, also.

Long time no blog, but good stuff to say!

Ok, I know it has been a long time since I wrote. I guess this time of year it is hard for me to get anything done. I did finish that bobble square finally, but it is now less than 10 days until my next square (lizard lattice) is due and I haven't cast on for it yet.

I did, however, knit these:

And I finished them (DH is modeling) on our anniversary morning. Happy 17th Anniversary honey!

I also worked these up:

This is technically my first finished sweater, and it is for a teddy bear. My LYS is promoting a local charity, Camp Erin, which is a bereavement camp for kids. As part of the camp each kiddo gets a bear with a hand-knit outfit. I hope mine will suit.

I did make a square for my knitting friend who is expecting, but I didn't get a shot of it before I turned it in. :( It was a beautiful chunky lace pattern.

By a week from today I need to finish that cardigan that I started in the last blog, and I am getting there.

I have a huge list of projects that I want to work on. I really think I have a plan for most of the rest of the year!

Today I cleaned out the linen closet and moved my stash into it from the spare bedroom. I feel almost organized. Almost.
