Okay, I finished the front and back of flame stitch cardi. I really like how its coming along. I'm knitting the sleeves now. Hopefully I'll get one done today (or tomorrow). I already have my next project lined up - the minisweater by glampyre. I'm doing a longer version of the mini(like this one), so I guess it will be the not-so-mini sweater. I have some green cotton yarn from the poncho I started (never finished) last summer. I'll swatch it after the flame stitch cardi is done. Posted by Hello

Got stuck on the flame stitch cardigan (the pattern is so full of errors its not even funny!), luckily knitflix came to the rescue. I finished the front right side this morning, and starting on the front left. Not too much to show. I hope I'll get the front and back done this weekend. We'll see. Good news is... I started and finished a pair of soaker shorts for dd#2. DH was complaining how her other soakers aren't fitting right and that I should knit another pair. I lanolized it yesterday, and its now blocking dry. The ties are done too. The yarn is from Mystical Yarn Creations. I frogged the clapotis. But this yarn is perfect for soakers. I might knit a little sweater for dd when it gets a bit warmer with this yarn. Size 7 needles. Soaker shorts pattern from Posted by Hello

This was taken a couple days ago. The color is quite a bit darker. I just finished the front/back divide and working on the neck and armhole decreases. A bit stuck right now. The pattern decreases and increases are affected when I do the neck/armhole decrease (i.e. the net number of stitches is off). Still trying to figure out how to handle this.  Posted by Hello

Okay, I changed my mind. I'm going to make the flame stitch cardigan in VK S/S 2005 instead of the lace short sleeve sweater. This is Jo Sharp Soho Summer in plum. The yarn is a little lighter in color IRL. Posted by Hello

Yes, a completed pair of socks. Knit picks yarn, size 1 addi turbos and Elann's chevron sock pattern. I really like this toe up pattern. It took a long time (I got distracted with some gardening). But I'm glad they're done and I can move onto the lace short sleeves sweater in Vintage Knits. Posted by Hello
