I've been a terrible blogger of late, neglecting to post regularly, so that you, Gentle knitter, can see what kind of knitting progress I've made on Mike's sweater.

The work in progress...

I'm not happy.
I plan to frog the shoulder seams and do a 3 needle bind off instead of the bo and sewn version i followed from the Ann Budd book. Sorry Ann, I'm not getting even sewing tension on both shoulder seams, after several attempts!

I tried to pick up and knit the button bands and was just not liking the look of it with this Mistake Rib pattern. I am, instead, knitting a garter stitch ballband, which will be sewn on. Taking forever....

Meanwhile, diversions, some necessary, and some not....

My stack of mitered squares knit from donated yarn is progressing nicely and will eventually make up a 16 square lapghan for charity.

A camo hat for a co-worker's baby boy.

Jeanie's new ballband face cloth. She tells me she uses them to remove her make up/wash her face nightly.

A baby hat for Andrea's new baby girl, (she's the DIL of my SIL)

Rowan BiggiePrint Hat. I realized, with all the knitting I do , I did not have a hat of my own. Shamefully sad.

Another baby gift.
And a spare for emergency gifting.
A bib pattern from Rainy Kilbrough, whose patterns are featured in the 2008 Dish cloth calendar sponsored through th Monthly Dishcloth group. I love her designs!

Icelandic Neck warmer.
Yarn with feathers scarf from Rhinebeck.
Baby bib sample from Tatamy Tweeds. For a boy.

Taos sweater swatch. I'm thinking 2:2 ribs...

Gotta go! Meeting Nan for some yarn tasting at Knitwitz and sew much more!

Kraemers on Wednesday night-sock yarn is being held for me!
