I have been reading the Ysolda book (Little Red in the City)  and I have been empowered to swatch for my next sweater.  I usually get gauge, but I mean a REAL swatch now :)

Here it goes
I am not using these colors, so I am swatching again.  I will get a picture of that one when I start it.

I just got 2 more books in the mail, Wendy Knits Lace and 10 Secrets of something something... Memory fails, I got the last one for a monster pattern that is in it.

Sorry I was on VACATION!

I have some pictures of me knitting on my vacation, but not much got done, so they were more or less staged ;)

Once I get them off the camera I will post them.  I bought a new knitting book on vacation, so I will be blogging about that once I have read it. 

I am going to use this post to say that once I finish the 2 shawls I have on the needles I am not doing another shawlette for a long long while!  I am going to stick with socks or big circles....  I want to get through my garments and toys.  Those are my new favorites, also socks, I forgot how fun they are! So quick!

So NO MORE SHAWLETTE... if you see one in my queue it is moving to the back!  I have one scarf/shawl that I need to make as a gift.  I have a small triangle on the needles that I am thinking of frogging! I am soooo done with shawls!

My Purple Dress!

I have finished my DRESS!!! I am so excited and I got the yardage entered into Stash Dash and I think I am going to make it to the end!! under 200 yds to go. I may get a pile of WIPs that I worked on for the dash in a pile and dive across the finish ;)

Okay I am back... sort of

I have knitting over lunch at work today, which is exciting.  I may just finish my dress (I have been thinking this for weeks, but maybe this weekend will prove productive)   So the dress is all that I have been knitting on. I have a test knit that I am trying to get going on, but I really want this dress done!

I did manage to get one thing completed.  I have decided to post it... The new parents have not given me their address yet, but I think they are busy ;)
