Things have been moving along the past couple of weeks. I have so many projects going that it's difficult to see the progress I'm making, but it's there.
I think it's time for some pictures of the projects I have going on right now and one I finished recently....
This sweater was a project of mine from last year. It is knit out of Knitpicks Wool of the Andes colorway Fog. The pattern is from Vogue Knitting Winter 2005. I knit this for my mother and got it almost seamed when I realized it did not fit her. Instead of ripping it out and reknitting it, I decided to give it to a friend of mine and knit her a new one in a similar style. The new sweater is complete and was given to my mother on Thanskgiving.

Sweater on its new owner:
This is Clapotis, knit out of Rowan Tapestry. I am knitting out of both ends of the ball, alternating every two rows. This creates interesting varigation and breaks up the colors a bit more.
It's relaxing to knit, and the twisted stitches give me just enough to stay interested in it. I found this yarn just after I went to the Point for the first time. I try to avoid variegated yarn because I prefer to control the color myself, but the murky colors in this just drew me in.
I finished the second Cable Rib Sock and needed a new commuting project. I cast-on for these Latvian Socks (from Nancy Bush's Folk Socks) just last Wednesday. I turned the picot edge and have knit the rest since Sunday. This is a very simple pattern repeat & it's also quick knitting. I'm using Elann Devon.
