Knit Progress


Here's some pictures of my boys enjoying iPods, playstation and, of course, kitties...

I've been busy working on Kiri and am now on the edging. I hope to have it completed in the next couple of days. The pictures posted here are about a week and a half old, with 9 1/2 repeats completed.

I started the Frost Flowers & Leaves shawl from "Gathering of Lace." I'm using KnitPicks Alpaca Coud in Peppermint. I've only completed 28 rounds, however, because I really want to finish Kiri. I can't wait to get back to this, though. I really love lace and have become totally addicted.

I'm also working on the Splitz Top from Knit 'N Syle, but that has taken the back burner while I work on Kiri. I'm knitting this in the round rather than front and back separately. This top will probably take forever because I am in my lace phase and wish I had not started this project. I'll have to finish it though. Otherwise, I'll feel too guilty. (I already have a pair of incomplete socks that I really need to set my mind to finishing).

USM Pullover Completed

I finished the Union Square Market Pullover. It came out a little big on me, so it will probably just be something I wear around the house. Oh, well. The sleeves are long, and the bell shaping makes them seem even bigger.

I also decided to FINALLY block my Field of Flowers shawl. This was the first lace shawl I had ever made. I began it in October 2002, and only just finished it about 6 months ago. I figured it was finally time to block it and make it an officially completed object.

Here's a couple pictures of the gang - Adam, Jazz-Purr and Jacob & Cleo. Scooter was too shy this time to have her picture taken. The big question is - will Adam get his hair cut for Jacob's Bar Mitzvah???
