Sneak Peeks

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.

Kelley - I'd love to get the details of your cable sweater with the buttons (Vogue 2005 winter). I'm trying to find the magazine but want to be sure I've got the right one before I order it. Do you still have the mag? Thanks ... Rox (john_rox@hotmail.com) .
