On with the knitting

Enough with the venting and on with the knitting!

My oldest WIP* is inching closer to the finish line.

Started back in September 2004, this gem is 4 months short of its 2nd anniversary.

I'd like to say that I'm finished with the knitting, but sadly that's not the case. The same cable trim that you see at the neckline is needed at the bottom of the sweater and at the wrists.

Once those are finished, they need to be washed ~2 times. Then and only then can they be sewn onto the sweater.

Because this project involves 3 cones of yarn, it doesn't travel easily. Meet my "away from the couch" project:

Crusoe socks in STR Fire on the Mountain.

*My oldest WIP that I plan to finish that is. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, know what I mean, know what I mean.

  • Everytime I see that Fire on the Mountain colorway I just want to cry. It's, ya know, way too pretty. I'm going to have to buy some and then just gaze at it. Dunno if I'd have the temerity to actually make socks! but go you! :)
