getting ready to leave

Sorry to have left you all in a lurch.
I have not been doing much of anything.
Knitting is still happening on the FLS2, I am trying to finish it before we leave next week for banishment in the UP.
Then I can start on the new sweater.

I have been reading a lot. Nothing earth shattering, just for fun.

Rainy crappy weather

Due to a lack of sunshine and pool days, I have been doing lots of knitting on the FLS2. I just finished the body this morning. Off to the arms.

Beautiful sock yarn!!

Here is some sock yarn I purchased from my good old SP10 pal, you must check out her blog (on side bar BetteM) she is raising funds for mammograms and each purchase of this limited edition sock yarn, On The Wings of Hope, helps to fund it.
Please help her out, I think I was the first one to donate!

Let the sun shine!

Here is the finished (almost) Radiate sweater. I need to get 4 buttons and then have it blocked. It looks FAB U LOUS. 2l'dallisons grandma did a great job.

An added bonus in the box, a pretty painted picture by 2l'dallison! Thank you!!!

More new yarn

Here is the progress on the FLS part 2. I am having issues I did not have on the 1st sweater, but nothing I can't handle. It is going to be so soft and pretty!!!

Also, here is the new yarn I bought for my next sweater! Blue Sky Alpaca Dyed Cotton, Tomato!!! It is for the Something Red Sweater. It will be my upnorth project.

I've yet to hear from 2L'dAllsion's grandma...I sent her the Radiate sweater to finish the button band.....hhhmmmm did it send her off the deep end too????

I'm blaming it on the full moon

I was forced to have a beverage at 3:30 today because of these 2 events:

My computer will not recognize my itouch. I have restarted, restored, unrestored, uninstalled, rebooted, etc. I cannot update it at all

Radiate the sunshine is making me nuts! I have tried many many times to pick up the 73 stitches to make the button bands, It is being shipped off to 2L'dallsion's grandma tomorrow. She said she would finish it for me.

Oh, and #3, Tigers are losing big time.

Leaves me no choice but to crack a cold one and cast on a new project!
The FLS part 2, for me this time!

Almost done

Why are they always sideways?
Anyway, here is the almost finished sweater. I only have the button bands left to do. I think it is going to fit me, tight, but it will fit.
Then I have a pick of sweaters to start on next!!!

New things

Well, since Wednesday is the new Friday (drinking with the hockey mom's) it only seems fitting that Sweaters are the new socks.

Remember when all I knit was socks? well now I cannot get enough of knitting sweaters! I have found so many that I want to knit. They take about the same amount of time so who knows? I know of at least 3 that I want to make NOW.
