Last Project for 2007

The last project I'm working on for 2007 is the Wrap Pullover from the Classic Elite Publication #9084, Uptown Knitting. It's knit with Classic Elite Princess & Duchess. I'm making mine in Privileged Plum. I originally had wanted to knit it in the Raspberry color shown in the pattern photo, but I could not find that color anywhere so I decided on the purple. It's a real interesting knit. You start out from the sleeve cuff and work your way in, knitting the body sideways. I'm knitting the sleeves and front & back at the same time and am just about finished. Then I'll just have to knit up the lower band and voila! - she will be finis!! This won't be finished until 2008, though.

Here are some early pictures of my progress. I have not taken any recent photos.
