Trying to clear my plate.

I am trying to finish this sweater that really wasn't suppose to be. The front and back's are complete.


I am not sure when the arms will be knit...I would like to finish Ene's first.

SCP#1 I know what I am knitting...what colour? I am horrible at deciding on colours. I ordered the Jo Sharp silkroad tweed dk in Boheme. It is a strange blue...I don't know if it will work for the recipient of SCP#1. If it doesn't then SCP#2 will love it...but what to knit? Some sort of cardigan I am envisioning. Any ideas?

Also, if Kathy left any at Elann.com (she is really enhancing her stash!)...I am getting some Cora for Lucca's sweater. I am thinking of Scamp or Action.

In the mean time, I am hoping to finish my socks, Ene's, restart my DH's socks and make some of the draw string bags for the nieces. I also had an idea for one of my nephews...he is a Harry Potter reader. I think this is cute for a little hand knit something from his favourite aunt!

That little book scarf will be a perfect present for the HP fan ;) I want one!

I do like that sweater above--the center cable is so pretty.

Have a nice weekend, Carolyn!

I'm very curious what you'll think of the Cora - let us know! I wish I had some reviews to go by when I bought it... but I just had to make them up myself. I like finishing up stuff before I start new projects, too, but some stuff (i.e., Adrienne Vittadini sweater) would just hold me back forever, so I have to keep it in mind, but move forward!

I love this sweater! You do have a lot on your plate, but I'd probably finish Ene, cause it's so purty.

That's a cute book scarf!

And all those lovely colors of Cora are calling me too..

Hi Carolyn! The sweater looks gorgeous. I just love that color. All your sock knitting has inspired me! I just finished a pair, my first real (read non-enormous-slipper-sock-type) pair. I would love to try the Go with the Flow socks. As a Potter fan myself, I have considered the book scarf. But I don't know about knitting with embroidery floss! :)
