More Projects in my mind!

This is my Fair Isle Swatch for the beautiful bias fair isle pullover from the Loop De Loop book. This sweater has been calling me for awhile and so now it will be knit.

I have the back done to the baby sweater and one front. I have my yarn picked out for my Chunky Alpaca Log Cabin Afghan, and of course I am in training for the Olympics by doing some swatching.

Knitting Olympics

I am going to compete!! I am going to do the Community Afghan from the Handknit Holidays Book. This is a 96 square Afghan. 16 days to knit this, sew it together, and then do a border around it. And, instead of doing the 8 colors it calls for, I am going to do 25 colors!!

As I am knitting on the Baby sweater, and my Fair Isle hat tonight, My children are finally asleep. They have tugged all day and Molly barked non stop. We have a wonderful fire in our fireplace and it is raining outside. I have a glass of wine in front of me, and my knitting. Great TV tonight, what could be better.

It is going to be a busy week, but I vow to post more project pictures this week.

More Finished Projects!!

This is a Finished Toque hat for my father for Christmas. I know what you are thinking, that I am a little late but here in our world we have declared Xmas goes thru January 31st so that we can have all projects done in time. This is made out of the yummy Malabrigo yarn.

In staying with the spirit of Another Day, Another Sweater girl I am starting more projects, but more like every 4 days, not every day. I have a baby sweater, baby blanket, Misti Alpaca Chunky blanket, and a Soft Tweed cabled sweater coat in the plans. I am finishing things as well. I have way to many UFO's to complete. I stopped counting at 52.

This is Miss Thing in her new Fair Isle sweater. She would not stay still long enough for a great picture, but you get the drift. She is very stylish in her salmon sweater. Unfortunately we are not cold enough here at the moment for her to enjoy it.

Phantom Knitter

My First post of my knitting blog. I am calling myself this phantom knitter because one common thing that I hear from multiple people is that they never see me knitting, but I produce multiple projects.

This is a very blurry picture of my DH's new sweater.

This is just an enticement to more projects that I am working on and I promise that the photography gets better. This was a rough evening and the camera would just not behave for me.
