Waiting.......

Well, my surgery for disc replacement in my neck has been postponed until next week. Everything happens for a reason so I'm trying to be patient. In the meantime, I started a new project. It's the Leaf T-Shirt by Melissa DeBarre. Haven't had much success with raglan sleeves but this is a dream cause it's knit top down. Best of all it's seamless.



With any luck, I'll complete the tee before next week. I still have two WIPs that need to get finished: the Tempest cardigan by Ann Weaver has always been one of my favorites and I'm pairing Miss Babs Swing Yarn (Chocolate Roses) with Creatively Dyed Yarn (Beaches) for a pink/brown combo. Lovin it.....the finished style is shown on the right.










My other WIP is a pair of socks that I began during the Olympics (hangs her head in shame). By the end of the games I had "second sock syndrome" so they've been lounging in the WIP pile ever since. Yarn is the Monsoon colorway from Socks That Rock from a swap with my cuz.


In the quest to finish what I start in 2010, these WILL be finished before I start another new project. By the way, hope all you frugal knitters have discovered that Tuesday Morning now carries discontinued yarns. Limited quantities, but nice stuff - and the inventory changes weekly. My latest great find was the Elsebeth Lavold Silky Cashmere......

I love the colors you are using on the Tempest. The Tempest is in my queue. Hopefully I can start it soon too!
