I'm also knitting

Just a little.

New to the cardigans-without-sleeves pile:

Last weekend I knit the collar and sewed the side seams -- go me. And I actually did start a sleeve on Monday. You know, before the wheel got here. As soon as I get through the lace part I'm expecting that it'll go pretty quickly. And it will be more portable. It's super cozy -- if I'm lucky I can wear it when I take the kids trick-or-treating. Lucky meaning no rain. A girl can hope, right?

It looks great! I love the lace pattern. And the yarn you're spinning on the wheel is looking really good. I'm so glad you got the wheel!

Looks great! I also wanted to thank you for my beautiful yarn! I almost don't want to do anything with, in fear of not doing it justice!

That is sooooo pretty! Seeing yours and Stacey's has really made me want to knit that pattern! I love the color -- what yarn is that?

Thanks, Amber -- the pattern leaves much to be desired but it is a fab sweater. LMK if you do decide to knit it and want a copy of the lace chart. I used Bartlett Yarns Fisherman Bulky in Garnet -- it's pretty but a bit scratchy. I don't think I'd use it for anything but a cardigan. ;)

Beautiful work! I just loved how you put that though "new to the cardigans without sleeves pile"... cracked me up!

It's very pretty, I am really bad about making things in lots of pieces and then having to sew them together - At least I figured that out, and stick to all-in-one type patterns, or patterns I can convert.
