so close, so far

I’ve got lots of progress pics!

First of all, the purple socks are finally seeing some action – just an inch or so until the heel.

I started a new project for during lectures – “stripes go round” from Interweave Knits summer 2004, in Elann Esprit. Obviously, there are no stripes.

Some other projects are sooo very close to completion!

The licorice cardi just needs a zipper (I will try very hard to do that this weekend):

(Is it poor form to use the Rachael for a non-FO? I think it’s ok.)

And Ubernatural just needs some buttons, which I’ll hopefully pick up tomorrow – it’s a bit, er, tight, but I’m hoping it’ll stretch a bit.


I really need to finish some more stuff off (like the purple socks, these sweaters, the wavy skirt, maybe make some headway on Cozy) before I start any new projects. One of the priorities for the new projects – a skirt for my little sister; she wants to be able to wear it before school is out. I should get on that.

Thanks to Toni for sending me some Cotton-ease!

To a reader named Judi, who made my top-down cardi: I’m so sorry, I accidentally deleted your email and wasn’t able to reply! I’m so glad you enjoyed the pattern.

    Your near-FOs look great, especially the Ubernatural. I like it just like it is, worn unbuttoned… then again, I’m a fan of tight knits (says the girl with a 39″ chest who knits 36″ sweaters, hehe). Your RSS feed, though, could use some frogging and re-knitting – good luck with it, I know computers can be so confusing, like knitting lace.
