I finished the back of the sweater I started for myself. I have decided to go with a hooded pullover. And, I decided to put a cable up the center. I should not have worked on this yesterday after working the night before and having little sleep. I am not following a pattern, I am winging it, I expect that there will be a little trial and error. I got about 3 inches into the pattern and noticed one of the first cables got twisted the wrong direction. This is what it looked like around 2:30 (remember you were warned, it is not pretty). My mom was a pro at this fixing style. I used to be so disappointed when she would have me rip things because I had seen her work this magic before. I know now, that it is not always advisable to do this. It worked in this case though. This is what it looked like a little later. I have lost the sunlight though so I can't get a really good picture. There is a storm coming and it has gotten dark and gloomy out really quickly. The cables show up much better in real life. I am sure I will be taking a better picture of it soon.
Remember that knitting goal I had for last week? I failed. Not miserably, but fail I did. I have one pair very close to finished. I am blaming it all on work. I took my knitting along Saturday night. You know that extra hour I had to work because of the time change. I was hoping to squeeze some knitting time in. Hopeful thinking I know, I didn't even get to take a potty break, let alone get into my knitting bag. Now, I don't know if I will get them done this week. I want to finish the sweater. The "snow" word has been mentioned in our weather forecast for this week :) Just flurries, but it is still snow, and I love snow. A nice warm, woolly sweater will be wonderful. I hate to wear coats and I think this will work splendidly.
I have a little progress on the blue Alpaca Sox sock. I have decided to call these Cool Breeze. They really are a little darker than this in real life. This yarn is soooo soft. It would make a lovely warm scarf, I may have to buy more : )
Well, I am going to go play on Ravelry for a bit. Have a great week all.
