So here's the scoop. Remember the relaxed pullover I was going to work on? Well I started working on it and got the body finished.
Then I realized that my best friends birthday is this coming up weekend and I wanted to make her a ruffled scarf. So I stopped the pullover and started the scarf. Here it is...
I think she'll like it. I'm going to wrap it around the rest of her present like ribbon.
Now before we finish this post I wanted to show you the WIP of a sweater I'm knitting for my husband. If it turns out then I will surprise him with it when it's finished. I've just been working on the body of it when he's not at home.
It is a textured garter knit according to the pattern.
My gauge is spot on, I have been checking it pretty much every row, every inch, you name it and I have my trusty, handy, tape measure out. Of course I realize it really isn't that big of an achievement to get my gauge correct. It just proves that I can add 1 +1 and =2 and that I can actually read and follow directions :). So before I sign off I want to remind you all that I am still working on an aran afghan and the 'catch the wave' afghan. Besides all that I just got some fantastic yarn in the mail to knit my daughter an absolutely adorable cardigan and I also got some yarn for myself to knit a cardigan and (are you laughing yet) I got some more yarn for a jacket for my son. This of course doesn't take into consideration how many other projects I have queued up on my brain. They keep me up at night. I realize that October is just around the corner and with that comes costume sewing and trips to Apple Hill and oh the list goes on. I also still have to post pictures of the knits I made for my swap, I wonder how long it takes for something to get to New Zealand.....
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and thanks for all the compliments on the ladybug party and for playing along with the meme.
