News From the Knitting Front!

Having the flu hit our house helped me to finish up this project. It's waiting on buttons, which really, literally, pulls the whole sweater together. And I do mean literally. Without the buttons, the sweater hangs off my shoulders in a big mess. I'm hoping I'm going to like it better once the buttons are on.

I'm also making another Wisp. I adore this pattern. This one is for a special friend.

Next up on my sweater list is this beauty from Berroco. I'm not usually a huge Berroco fan, but I love this sweater. I have different yarn that I bought when a local yarn shop was going out of business that I'm planning on using. I just need to get my kiddo back to school so I can go buy the pattern.


This last one is also from Berroco. I'm seriously thinking of attemping it. So cute. And will go well with those Frye boots that I'm coveting. I can even recreate this whole modeling scene, seeing that we have a hat (and a few woodpiles) like that around here. Actually, we have three of those hats, one for each male in the household. Next week...I promise...a finished picture of the cardie. Really!

I love that Berroco sweater! And I admire you for considering the earflap hat for a photo shoot. That is dedication to the blog. I keep saying I'm going to make a wisp, but I never seem to get to it. I'd like to see yours finished. I hope everyone is feeling better soon.
