I can't seem to get this blog thing going consistently. I've updated my Ravelry account though - pictures, projects, stash (not all of it though!)

Check it out - I'm a little obsessed with the Baby Surprise Jacket!

I heart Ravelry. Here is my info on the site. I am amazed at how intuitive it is. Maybe it will make me better about posting on this blog. Too bad work seems to get in the way of so much stuff. Seriously though, it was extremely difficult for me to not spend my entire day on there. I thought about saying I was sick and going home from work. I figure I can sit with my laptop and catalog my stash... it should only take a day or two (or twenty).

So, in the past few months I've made 3 baby sweaters (none of which I photographed), cast on and off for many projects. I am working on a pair of Monkey socks in alpaca sock yarn that is delicious.

Come visit me on Ravelry.

Love It!

I started this baby sweater on Friday night and I'm zooming along. The construction of this sweater is so interesting I feel compelled to keep knitting. It is the February Baby Sweater from Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac. The yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in Black Purl and I'm using size 6 bamboo circulars. I wish I could properly capture the beauty of the colors, these pictures fall far short.

Back to the construction - the sweater is knit from the top down with cleverly placed increases that create the circular yoke. Genius. The body and sleeves are knit in a lace stitch. As you can see, the sleeves are knit off of the main body and then the stitches are picked up to knit the rest in one piece. The real beauty of this design (for me at least) is in the finishing... only 2 seams. Since finishing is not very high on my list of fun things to do, this is perfect. The pattern does not really state a size, and I would guess that it is in the 6-12 months range when done.

Setting up this blog made me realize something - blogging could easily eat away at all of my free time. I've been playing with the formats, adding elements, etc... and lost a few hours. How did that happen? Time that could have been spent on knitting, no less! Both kids are sound asleep and my husband is busy playing Gears of War on the x-box I gave him for x-mas.

I think I'll go knit for a while now! Tomorrow I will try to post some pictures of my current projects...

New Year's Resolutions...

1. Finish more knitting projects.
2. Start a blog *check that off the list*
3. Find a new job (should be #1).
4. Start exercising...

I'm sure there are more resolutions I could make but I'll start with those 4.
