Timing is everything, ya know?
As I was nearing the finish line on the Ribbed Sweater, I was thinking about future projects, getting my knitted ducks in a row, as it were.
I’m going to the Knitter’s Review Retreat the first weekend in November, and L-B and I are planning on casting on for new projects right beforehand for retreat kntting. So I don’t feel like starting anything major right now.
Then I read the Sky Queen’s blog and find this:
A mitten-along! How timely!!
So . . . I forsee some mittens in the near future.
Hmmmmm . . . perhaps a two-color Scandinavian design . . .
Speaking of the Ribbed Sweater
I finished it. Yay!

I love this sweater. I love this sweater more than anything else I’ve made in recent memory. Even though it was close to 80 degrees when I tried it on, I can well imagine how comfy and warm and happy I’ll be wearing this come winter.
I actually used two more skeins of the Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk than the pattern called for. Well, one skein and a bit of the second. I knit exactly to gauge and didn’t alter the pattern a bit. I was a little surprised, as I usually use less yarn than a pattern calls for. Your mileage may vary, but that was my experience.
Can Anyone Guess What This is For?
