A New Project

I realized I just can't look at another lace project at the moment that requires small needles and tiny yarn. Plus, it is finally cooling down in Arizona in the mornings.

So, I decided I needed to make this sweater. It is the Weekend Cardigan from

I am knitting in Patons Shetland Chunky Tweed. I just can't see knitting a bulky 100% wool sweater for Arizona. I realized AFTER I bought this yarn with the help of one of my SnB ladies (you know who you are) with their 50% off employee discount at Michael's that I had bulky cotton in my stash. I can always make a second sweater.

I have visions of finishing this by next Wednesday night because we are going to San Diego on Thursday. Yeah, I am a dreamer because this is all I have knit in the past two nights. About 8 inches on the back.
We'll see what the weekend brings!

Oh, "all you have knit" is 8 inches on the back. That pretty much takes me a month!
But lovely sweater. I really like the design.

I think it will look lovely in that yarn. Great pattern, I've never seen it before.

Looks like a very nice jacket. I hate the Fanagenser right now, it's so slow knitting, but she's watching me all the time, my daughter. Right now she has a visiter so I'm knitting on a Birchsahwl, hi hi.
Have a really nice weekend and good luck with your speed knitting.
