Yarn Along

I organized my knitting bag the other day mostly because I am stalling on finishing at least three different projects.  I just want to move on and start something new, but I'm determined to finish the second sleeve on the baby sweater above.  I'm reading Practical Patchwork for inspiration on how to quilt my own quilts.  Typically, I send them out to be quilted, but I'd like to learn how to do a meandering stitch  so I can quilt my own projects.  I'm also reading Manning Up: How the Rise of Women has Turned Men into Boys.  I'm listening to Friendship Bread on my MP3 which is nice to while I'm knitting, but I'm not getting much time to knit the past few weeks.  I usually knit at night after everyone has gone to bed, but the twins have been waking up much earlier lately demanding to be nursed. The babies are growing!

On the sweater, I'm using Liberty Wool in Starry Night which is nice to work with and has some interesting color changes, but I absolutely detest that horrible yellow stripe in this!

Don't forget to go visit Ginny for other cozy yarns and more good reads!

I love the sweater. I always have too many projects on the needles, but I'm trying to stick to just one at the moment.

Carmie, I love the sweater! I looked on ravelry, but couldn't tell, is it worked without seams? I'm staying away from seams for the time being.

Cute baby sweater.

I was fortunate to win an Advanced Readers Copy of Friendship Bread. I absolutely loved that book. I hope you do, too.
