WIP. Top-Down sweater. This is the first v-neck top-down sweater that I have knit. I need to come up with a name for this sweater. I love seed stitch, so I am using it on all the edges. The sleeves have been taken off the needles and body has been joined under the arms. Continuing with the v-neck, with hopes that it will be a fairly deep v-neck before having to join. The fabric that the yarn is creating is very soft. Yarn from knitpicks...can't remember which yarn, it is one of my post below.

Here is a pic of the outgoing package, to be mailed out tomorrow as promised.
Also, got back from our 30 year Celebration for work. The company sent the employees and a guest to the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando. OMG...Paul and I walked into the room and just screamed. It was a SUITE! We felt like total rock stars. Here is a panoramic view of our room. We had a very fun weekend.

I am planning to design a sweater. I am using the minisweater pattern from Glampyre Knits as a guide. I am planning on modifying it by making it into a complete sweater and instead of garter stitch edging I am going to use seed stitch, which I like better. I am using the recycled yarn from another pattern by Stefanie in her Fitted Knits book that didn't work out for me.
Oh...I found the best straight pins for blocking. I got them at the local craft store, there are about 200 for about $7 bucks. They are very long and the flat head makes them easy to see.
Happy knitting to all!

Okay, so current projects. Secret afghan project. Moving along with this project, I still have a lot more squares to go and I have to buy more noro. Oh Darn, buying more yarn!
I have finished the Argosy scarf from Knitty. I think this is first time I have every used the yarn called for in the pattern. The pic above shows the scarf unblocked. I blocked it this morning and it is drying now.
Late pic. I actually finished the Clapotis about a month ago, but just go around to taking a pic of it. It is so hard to take a pic of black yarn. But here it is. It is also being blocked right now.
So there you have it. I am hungry, going to get something to eat.
