Almost at the finish line


The extra Noro found it's way to my mailbox so I am almost done with my Adult Surprise Jacket (again). This time the sleeves are too narrow rather than too loose. But rather than start over (again) I decided that a little modification could save the sweater. A few short rows later and I have what I like to call speed stripes. But now the neckline is a little more bodice like so I'm leaving it to marinate for a bit while I figure out how I feel about it.


The second mitten is finished and I'm about half way through working in the ends. I'm semi considering blocking them before mailing off the package. Maybe just a steam job.


And of course I can't be almost done a few projects without at least considering my next project. Well 'considering' turned into casting on for a Sideways Pullover from the Winter '04 Interweave Knits. I'm adapting for smaller gauge and a closer fit than shown in the picture. I forgot how fabulously fun and mindless brioche stitch was.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to get back to procrastinating the laundry a little longer.

You're my new knitting hero! That noro jacket looks kick-ass and I love the color of the sideways sweater!

NO! She's MY knitting hero.heh heh (catfight!!)
Seriously, when I first met you at knit night I didn't know how #$%^ing accomplished you were. Its a little scary and exhilirating at the same time to a latecomer like me.
Super powers, baby, you gots 'em.

Well thanks so much you two. I'm going to get a overly inflated ego if I'm not careful. :P

Did you rip out your sweater you were working on at the cafe? The yarn for the sideways sweater looks just like it...
