hmm this pic's a little fuzzier than I thought in the camera...


oh well.

Turns out this is the perfect car pattern - keeps you occupied but not bored.

I got this much lace done on the trips to and from NJ. It might have cost me a few dollars in crappy toys for the kids in the back seat, but the investment was totally worth it. (I also have a few lovely new plastic bracelets and a matching necklace to show for my investment.)

Now back to this.


All I have left to do is the neckline - the body and sleeves have both turned out about perfect (for my size anyways), so I can see the carrot at the end of that stick. I may also add a little more finishing in the form of cuffs to the sleeve caps, but we'll see how it looks with a neck first and go from there - designing in steps here.

It's a rainy yucky afternoon, so perhaps glass of a little something and I might finish today?

pretty pretty! It looks like you have a color theme going today.

I'm crossing my fingers that my yarn for that top sweater shows up today. I'll still finish Annika's sweater if it comes, right?

Loving the Lady Sweater.

Love that February Lady!

For a drizzly day, how about a warm cocktail something? Cocoa with Kahlua, maybe?

I hope you finished it!

I love car knitting. It's such an awesome use of time. I love the color. It will certainly be a staple sweater. Mine is even in that bright green!

A rainy day is perfect for working on greyish knits! They look great and I can't wait to see them as FOs.
