Today is the first day of the rest of my life - after Christmas
The Irish Hiking Scarf is now adrift in the frog pond. The yarn was, in fact, so old that it began to unravel as I was knitting it. Probably is going to be thrown out. I have some Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool that I will use in place of the Bernat.
I got the front, back, and sleeves down to the raglan sweater of Red Heart with Wool. The Bond USM is good for boring stockinette stitch construction. I will add the neckband by hand knitting and seam the sweater together.
Next project for myself is completing the Hippy Chic Cardigan from Knit It Magazine (2002). I was using Lion Brand Woolease in Chelsea Twist (color is discontinued) cache.lionbrand.com/yarns/woolease.htm. Of course, I ran out of yarn I was using after I finished the fronts and back. I am going to knit the sleeves in Lion Brand Microspun Purple cache.lionbrand.com/yarns/microspu.htm. The picture shows the Chelsea Twist in the background and the Microspun in the foreground. The yarns are showing up blue in the photo, but actually more concord grape purple.
