Nothing exciting here.

I wish I had some exciting new something or other to blog about. But no.

I am knitting away...

The thick and thin cardigan is done, still waiting for buttons.


I can't find ones that I really like...and have discovered that I need 23mm...some pretty big buttons. So back to the notions store I will go...maybe this weekend...if not next week.


No rush...it's still winter here.


Snow, snow and more snow.

I finally picked up the needles for my sisters abandoned project.

Let me just say...it is like knittng with toothpicks and dental floss. Seriously.

No, it is not a sock...I am knitting Isla, an entire sweater! Ghaaaaddddd! Look for the FO sometime around next christmas! It is from "A Season's Tale".


I did invest in a little yarn this month....I'll save that for next week!

No wonder that project was abandoned. It won't be so bad if you have no real time frame on it. It is amazing how your knitting grows when you aren't asking it to hurry up and be done! I can already tell it will be a winner.

Knitting a sweater with toothpicks! Urghhh, I don't envy you that. It's bad enough when it's socks. I hope you can stick with it and complete sooner rather than much much later ;)

I am a knit-a-holic, and I think your blog is just wonderful.

I was wondering what happened to you! We have missed you! :) It all looks so beautiful, I can't wait to see it all finished up!

If you get tired of working on your sister's sweater, just send it to me and I'll knit a little on it, then send it on... It would get finished that way, but I'm not sure if you sister would like it! :D I love the colors, though, so that would make knitting it nice for me. For a while.

I feel your pain. I knit Beth in a 50" bust on a size ONE! But I love the very versatile sweater...I love yours too. Hang in there! :)

Hm, toothpicks and dental floss? Bad, bad. Why not abandon it. Or, try washing the wool to see if it softens.
