sweater progress

sweater progress
i got the yoke done and am ready to split off the sleeves. i had 480!! stitches on the needle on the last rows. i’m still not sure how i want to finish the bottom edges. repeating the flower would be pretty, but that stitch pulls in the circumference and i think i want this one to fall straighter, especially the sleeves. i’m leaning towards a picot sewn hem, but am open to other suggestions.

of course i have about 150 rows of stockinette to knit first O_o

back at last?

please forgive me for my long absence, these last few months have been challenging to say the least. my middle child has had some serious health issues that have taken up most of my time. we are hoping/praying that he is stable right now and i may be able to get back to making doll stuff and checking in to my various forums on the net, at least a little bit, anyway.

so one of my favorite yarn stores eatsleepknit is having their yearly yarnathon, and this year looks like a winner as far as i’m concerned. they are allowing us to add projects together for the kals, cals and booster club prizes, so i can work on my doll stuff and actually have it count! 🙂 🙂 🙂

i’ve started a new blanket for the girls couch. i’m only being cautiously optimistic ’cause i started a christmas one O_O. and i’m working on some shawls that will hopefully get done in time to wear before summer hits. everything is being done in malabrigo lace so far. its the softest lace yarn i know of that doesn’t have cashmere in it, and eatsleepknit has tons of colors!

here’s a sneak peek at my christmas blankie.
snowflakes on a snowy road
i worked on it over the holidays, so took my “on the road” pic already in hopes that they have that badge again this year. if not it seemed appropriate anyway to do a snowflake afghan in the snow.
